I've actually gained some free Litecoin recently & I have high hopes for its future. Speculation is a fantastic thing. It's also got a mass following & Its market capital will only rise alongside bitcoins.
I've made 1 litecoin this week from the below website if you want to get some before they start rising!
It's a faucet which gives you coins every five minutes, not sure how they profit from it, but I love a freebie!
