    Litecoin Gets Verified Blue Tick Badge

    Twitter recently verified Litecoin with a blue tick badge on their account. The Litecoin team celebrated this by tweeting: 

    Thanks @Twitter for #bluetick goes nice with our style.

    The move represents the acceptance of cryptocurrencies like LTC by the mainstream. With verification, the altcoin has gained legitimacy on social media that not many cryptocurrencies today have achieved. Verification from a social media giant like Twitter also gets investors excited for the future of Litecoin as it tries to push towards bullish trends. 

    There are several reasons why cryptocurrencies need verification. Verification ensures that scammers cannot take advantage of unsuspecting followers and reach out on fake accounts with unsubstantiated offers. It also ensures followers that they can be confident in the tweets and information they get from the now official Litecoin Twitter account.

    Twitter recently overhauled its verification process, making it clearer how individuals and organizations get verified. Twitter only wants to verify accounts of high public interest and make sure a verified user contributes to the site in a healthy way. It said:

    Twitter will require a check of the user’s identity before verification and users will be given several options to prove they are who they say they are. That includes linking to an official website referencing a user’s identity or the organization they’re affiliated with and their Twitter account.

    Litecoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    The Litecoin price is currently sitting on top of the 20-day SMA. The buyers will want to push LTC a little further to the $200 psychological level.
