Litecoin Receives Support From Norway's Fourth-Richest Man 

Ole Andreas Halvorsen, Norwegian billionaire and hedge fund manager, is reportedly investing in a cryptocurrency mining chip hardware company called Harmonychain. The firm is set to build application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) mining chips that are allegedly 300%-500% more energy efficient than the current hardware. 

The Harmonychain website has claimed that the company is currently developing a “dual-purpose Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Scrypt algorithm ASIC Supercomputer microchip.” An excerpt from the website reads: 

[The microchip] is tailored towards cryptocurrency accounting/mining that is up to 300%-500% more energy efficient than existing Scrypt accounting computer systems. 

The Harmonychain chip is dedicated to mining Litecoin (LTC) and Scrypt-based coins. If proven true, the energy-efficient chips would essentially reduce computer energy use by 70-80%. Harmonychain is also hoping to deploy the Scrypt ASIC semiconductors with AI potential by 2022 or 2023. The startup highlighted that it will be the “most profitable mining hardware” available when released. 

The ASIC is designed as a dual purpose chip with edge AI potential. If prototype production works well, we plan to start mass deliveries in H2 2022 and 2023. According to industry standard, customers can expect to prepay approx. 9-12 months prior to delivery. The Supercomputer is poised to be the most profitable Crypto hardware on the market. Our Crypto Supercomputer miners have an estimated payback of less than 2 years.

Litecoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

The Litecoin price will likely drop to the $210 support line.
