Litecoin has several marketing efforts that aim to take LTC closer to more markets, starting in sports like MMA and kickboxing to the K-pop scene.
The month of February had been good for Litecoin. Its price now registers above $45–$10 higher than the price at the beginning of the same month.
A much better March, however, awaits Litecoin as the cryptocurrency expands its marketing arms. Through the marketing efforts of the Litecoin Foundation and of the Litecoin community, many audiences from different markets will learn more about the said cryptocurrency.
