So the upside to Litecoin is that it is cheap. I bought 1000 usd worth because I figured what the hell? It's not like it's going to disappear. I also bought at 70 and like an idiot and hung on to it after it hit 80. I got greedy, hung on, saw it drop to the 40's and figured, It will eventually come back. So it looks like I am locked into it now more for the long term:) I like the idea of Litecoin in that there are more of them and they have a reasonable value. 50-100 bucks for a litecoin is not a daunting amount. Buying a Bitcoin now for $4200 is a bit more intimidating. It's like buying an Apple Stock. You know it's a good Idea, but it's so damn high.However, I actually use Bitcoin to buy things. I have been using it as a useful unit of exchange since it was hovering around 600 bucks. I kinda started kicking myself when I realized I have spent over 20,000 in current bitcoin/usd value on 2800 in crap. So it goes. My major problem is with litecoin is what in the hell can I buy with it? I can buy a ton of junk with bitcoin. I am more of a outvestor than an investor. I would like to buy things with lite coin. You know, candy, cracker jacks, socks, batteries, tampons, bullets, and everything else I can buy cheap from asia. Any suggestions. Otherwise I am with this guy at the top of this thread. If I can't spend it, why have it?
