In 2013, bitcoin gained +11,000% and litecoin gained +500% over the price of bitcoin during its peak. The price of LTC hit an all time high of around $50 on some exchanges.
The last major litecoin rally was during the summer of 2015, when a Chinese LTC Ponzi scheme managed to accumulate at least 20% of the entire supply. Most of that supply was instantly dumped and the LTC/BTC markets have been on a long bear trend since.
