Litecoin price has been the talk of the crypto world in recent days, as the cryptocurrency has recently grown significantly in value relative to its Bitcoin older brother, and brought investors over 600% returns before the current pullback. It has helped to spark increased interest in the digital asset, which has caused its use as a search term to grow on Google Trends.
That spike on Google Trends, according to one crypto analyst, suggests that the pre-halving pump Litecoin has experienced may not be over, as past halvings have caused such enormous spikes in Google Trends, that the “top” of the rally can easily be predicted. The same analyst claims that because the search term being used as a trading indicator hasn’t yet peaked, suggesting that the Litecoin rally still has a few legs left.

The closer we get to Litecoin’s halving this coming August, the higher the likelihood that Litecoin’s recent rally is nearing completion. But also the closer we get, the more bullish the market becomes as investors see such enormous gains being brought by the digital silver equivalent. The two things will soon collide, and could result in as much as a 73% panic drop amidst a post-halving selloff.

With Litecoin’s halving less than two months away, investors who keep their eyes peeled on the Google Trends charts for Litecoin could be tipped off with the most accurate sell signal yet.
What to Expect from Litecoin Halving Selloff Event
Each halving decreases the block reward miners receive for confirming transactions on the network. In roughly 53 days, the LTC reward – currently 25 LTC – is halved to just 12.5 LTC.
This throws off the balance of supply and demand across the market, which in the past has led to massive Litecoin price surges. The price surges are often front run by investors anticipating such an increase – and can currently be seen playing out across the market.

Since Litecoin and the cryptocurrency asset class as a whole is still so young, there isn’t much historical data to go on to try and glean information from. The market cycle that most closely resembles the current one, is the bear to bull transition from 2015 to 2016.
