altcoin-ftw These days, it’s easy to get a little flack for recommending alt coins. Those people tend to think only this new great ‘adoption’ of technology will be only for bitcoin, thats far from the case.

Both namecoin and litecoin have hit new highs in the last 48 hours, sitting ~250% increase. They are starting to get support from those looking for bitcoin alternatives, usually something cheaper.
