The only reason LTC has any viability is because it was the first altcoin to market. It pays to be first. Technologically speaking it really doesn't have substance compared to other viable altcoin technologies. Since it was first to market it was automatically adopted. I think people are giving LTC way too much credit. The market cap is what it is due to being first to market. Not because it is such a great coin, or because its better than other coins. Had many other coins came out at the same time, LTCs market cap would not be what it is today. Having said that it has great trading opportunities as of late. This happened a while back and the coin crashed back down to around $1 usd. I remember people paying $20+ on BTC-e. Only time well tell the future. I can see LTC sticking around due to its wide acceptance, market cap, and longevity (basic creditability). Good arguments on LTC however.
