The moment in which the market capitalization of Litecoin exceeds that of Bitcoin Cash.
Flappening is the term used to describe any point at which the market capitalization of Litecoin (LTC) surpasses that of Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The concept was humorously coined because of Bitcoin’s domination as the number one crypto asset to date, which means that it is almost always at the top of the market. Flappening was derived from flippening which describes the potential future scenario during which the market capitalization of BTC is surpassed by that of Ethereum (ETH).
Flappening was first used in 2018 by the founder of LTC, Charlie Lee. The ultimate objective of the term is to show LTC’s superiority over BCH from a lower starting base.
