Litecoin’s Active Address Chart Shows Signs Of Dust Attack
Strange network activities behind Litecoin’s active addresses have been found recently, as per a blog post by Franklyn Richards, a director at the Litecoin Foundation.
“On average, the network typically sees around 40,000 active addresses per day. However according to data from bitinfocharts, every seven days this value is spiking to over 70,000 before abruptly dropping back down. This has resulted in an almost sawtooth like pattern that’s pretty evident given a cursory glance,” he said.
According to Richards, this behavior started on the 20th of August 2019. Previously, a very noticeable dust attack occurred on the 10th of August 2019, and this could be a continuation of that attack.

“There appeared a v-pattern reversal between the smaller bull market in the first half of 2013 and the bigger bull market in the second half of the year, leaving investors limited time to buy at the bottom,” he added.

Coinbase Is Now The Largest Tezos Validator
According to Cryptotato, the largest U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has become the largest validator for Tezos (XTZ). It brings the question of whether or not validation from exchanges is set to become the next trend in the cryptocurrency world.
It's also clear that Binance is making strides in the field as well, currently occupying the 4th place. However, the chart does not include foundation bakers, and if it did, it would place Foundation Baker 2 in the 3rd position.
Validation is the process when miners (in Proof-of-Work) or coin holders (in Proof-of-Stake) validate a specific transaction. In the case of Tezos, since it's PoS-based, the more coins a person or an entity has, the more staking power he controls.
