«Whenever I’m talking about the price of litecoin, or even about the good or bad news, I blame the fact that I’m doing this for personal gain. Thus, in a sense, for me, the conflict of interest to be a holder of LTC and post tweets about it. I always refrain from buying or selling LTC before or after my tweets, but others doubt it.
