What stands out is that this price surge represents the first notable addition for the year, with the closest occurrence happening on 10th January, when Litecoin gained around 4.64%.

Additionally, the chart showed that this recent surge has propelled LTC into a bull zone. At the time of writing, the Relative Strength Index was slightly above the neutral line.

Notably, this marked the second time this year that LTC has reached this level, the first being around 2nd January before experiencing a decline.

How Litecoin whales have moved in the past few weeks

An examination of Litecoin whale transactions showed significant activity over the past few days. A look at the 100,000 and 1 million whale transaction metrics on Santiment showed that substantial movements have occurred.

These specific categories of wallets engaging in LTC trading have played a crucial role in driving the recent price fluctuations.

Analyzing the 100,000 whale transactions, it was observed that the number within this category has consistently exceeded 100 in recent days. This signifies that more than 100 wallets have been actively moving 100,000 LTC or more within this timeframe.

As of the closing of the trade on 19th January, the number was over 160, indicating heightened activity in this segment.
