Litecoin (LTC) is currently selling for $122.18, which puts the coin up 2.58% in the past 24 hours.
Litecoin’s growth is likely due to general market upswing, as many coins are up right now. The iPayment news may also be helping Litecoin’s growth at the moment, but this is likely an indirect effect.
