I wonder why Litecoin isn't dead yet. Most useless and boring top 20 Altcoin out there.

Because LTC liquidity is 2nd only to BTC (and in the same ballpark).

It's about 25% that of BTC... roughly 10 times that of #3 XRP... and roughly 100 times of that NXT token.

Ultimately, a currency is only as valuable and relevant as it's liquidity...
And I'm talking traders and larger crypto players and Real World actors who move serious money around...
A key point that is lost on people who think "LTC is dead" or, conversely, coin X has a big future.

LTC proves that liquidity is far more important that features...
Because shiny things can always be bolted on to dazzle the natives...
But liquidity is one of those Magic Things that happens almost inexplicably... and turns an alt into "money".

Jep, this is it. It's not, that I do not understand at all why Litecoin is still alive. High liquidity is one key point but Litecoin is heading nowhere. I don't think people will use Litecoin to buy things because Bitcoin fills this gap already. It's hard to imagine why an investor would consider to invest in Litecoin in the long term. So from my view Litecoin is just a speculation object that has almost no other prupose besides being traded as speculation object. I mean Litecoin doesn't even have a big community (like Doge). Or is there something that I missed about Litecoin?

With the "preview" param, the thingy shows the finish animation. Seems epic, if you ask me.

(NO rickroll, promise)

https://www.google.com/search?q=First+U.S.+Bitcoin+Exchange+Set+to+Open&tbm=nws (non-paywall but will disappear eventually.)

That makes more sense. It will be a US$ and BTC  exchange, nothing to do with LTC or ripple.

This will be the best exchange, ever for people in the US.

This will be huge for BTC.

This opens doors for more people... but if number of users did matter then Dogecoin would have 1B marketcap.

It's been 1/2 an hour since the last block.  What, did everyone decide to shut down and install NRS 1.4.10 at the same time?  ;)

It's not just about individuals, this will lead to institutions buying BTC.  I guess we will see what happens in the next couple weeks.
