Charlie Lee admits Litecoin is “boring” and ATH – August 7, 2017

Bitcoin price crossed $3400 on Monday registering a new record high three days in a row. Post-fork excitement shows no sign of pulling back, just yet. At the time of writing Bitcoin price comfortably sits at $3386. If analysts are to be believed, this rally may continue but price correction is due in the near future.

It is likely that once all the Bitcoin users have decided what to do with their BCH (hold or dump that is), we will know the right price of Bitcoin. Many exchanges are still in the process of crediting Bitcoin Cash into their users’ accounts.

Notably, Coinbase will only hand out BCH to its users next year. Meanwhile BCH price is showed some signs of recovery in the past couple of days after crashing to below $250. At the time of writing BCH price is at $322.
