  1. I feel that Litecoin will gain a big boost by being traded on Mt. Gox and subsequently, being added to Coinbase in the US. This should enable it to trade more independently of Bitcoin and gain its own following. The mining is more democratic and the architecture is better than Bitcoin, from the standpoint of daily global commerce.

    Personally, although Bitcoin is still the bright and shiny new ball, I feel that Litecoin has the potential to become the “daily use” cryptocurrency, whereas Bitcoin may become the international, large funds transfer and/or store of value currency. Software designed for Bitcoin can easily include Litecoin, because they work in the same way.

    I don’t put much stock in any crypto-currencies beyond these two, but I do think Litecoin has a bright future, even if it never escapes Bitcoin’s shadow.
