Crypto Olympics: TRON (TRX) vs. Litecoin (LTC)

Welcome to the Crypto Olympics: Day 3!

Check out Day 2 of the Crypto Olympics

Coin vs. Coin – who will be crowned the Crypto Olympics Champ?

It’s been a great first couple of rounds of the Crypto Olympics. On Day 1, TRON came away the winner; Day 2 crowned Litecoin as the winner. Today, we’ll be seeing our first two winners face off with each other!

In case you’ve missed the rules, here’s a quick rundown: we start with two coins and measure their gains and losses between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm PST. When the 4:00 pm finish line hits, whichever coin has gained the most (or lost the least if both coins are down) within our time frame comes away the winner for the day and moves into the next bracket. We carry on until we end with our ultimate coin – the Crypto Olympics Champ.

We will be holding a podium ceremony at the end of our games to award the gold, silver and bronze medals to the appropriate coins.

To see how we’re breaking up the rounds, check out the chart below. Otherwise, let’s get to the competition!

TRON (TRX)

TRON had a good first race, coming away that day with a 13.08% increase within our time frame. TRON’s itching for another win and to make it to the semi-finals – will the altcoin be able to do it?

The TRON Dogs are cheering from the sidelines as TRON steps up to the starting line, beginning the day at $0.046072. This puts TRON up 4.11% in the past 24 hours – but that’s not the percentage the matters here. All that matters is how much TRON can grow in the next 7 hours.

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin is nothing if not a fighter and it’s stepping up to the plate to do just that.

Litecoin was crowned champion on Day 2 with an overall 1.59% increase within our time frame and the coin is looking to beat records today – and to beat TRON.

Today, LTC is starting at $158.53 and has increased by 3.67% in the past 24 hours.
