The summary concludes that Litecoin was originally introduced to function as a solution to Bitcoin’s scalability problems. It was meant to facilitate faster remittances and lower fees. It also talked about how upgrades to Litecoin’s network like the SegWit (Segregated Witness) and the Lightning Network resulted in faster remittances in Litecoin. The introduction also talked about how the Litecoin Foundation is targeting the commercial payment market. The network is looking to onboard merchants and making them accept Litecoin for their payments. Responding to the introduction, one commentator said Grayscale should understand that there are no merits of a BTC clone.
Crypto expert, Sydney Ifergan, tweeted:
“Litecoin calls themselves an asset that’s complementary to Bitcoin. But they are not Bitcoin. It is ok if they claim a unique position for themselves as a special brand in the payment network based on their merits.”
Litecoin News Today – Latest Update on Litecoin’s MW Implementation
In a bid to offer further clarity regarding Litecoin’s Mimble Wimble upgrade and implementation, the Litecoin Foundation expressed that its mempool logic appears to be more complex than they hand anticipated. Further, the foundation talked about how they plan to revisit this area once the MW testnet launches. Apart from the mempool changes on the MW implementation, a code was reportedly written to offer support for the mining of extension blocks. This includes a few edge cases and requires a lot of testing. All in all, the Litecoin foundation concluded that everything is still on schedule for a mid-September testnet for the MW update. At press time the price of Litecoin was changing hands at $41.28 with a total market cap of $2,681,187,270.
