Daily Litecoin News Update

It’s a quiet day in the cryptocurrency world. The storm has settled and the sun is out. Investors are finally out of choppy waters and trading with more peace of mind. Top cryptos, including Litecoin are trading in the green. At this point another piece of good news may serve as the icing on the cake that Litecoin investors may have been longing to taste.

Litecoin founder Charlie Lee updates from the headquarters that Litecoin’s next upgrade is on its way. As promised, the developers will be cutting down transaction fees to further make LTC transactions cheaper for users.

Later, he also updates that Litecoin, like Bitcoin, would be integrating “Schnorr Signatures” in the coming days. In layman terms, it’s an algorithm that would make Litecoin more scalable (read: faster), efficient (read: cheaper) and private (read:secure).

Basically, we’re getting a couple more steps closer to seeing Litecoin becoming the Bitcoin substitute for day-to-day digital payments. Litecoin is going all out to replace the slower and more expensive Bitcoin as the go-to digital medium of exchange.

Bear in mind that its success ultimately depends on investors promoting and using it for transactions. So you and I must individually play our parts in reaching the goal.

The Litecoin founder has, on numerous occasions, reminded his followers to more than just invest in Litecoin. He urges them to use LTC for payments and he promises that prices will automatically follow demand.

Good news is that with more and more platforms beginning to support LTC, users will be finding it much easier to transact in it.

Most recently U.S.-based PayPal-like service BTCPay Server has begun offering Litecoin support on its payments platform. Just earlier this week, Canada-based CoinCards opened support for Litecoin. Meanwhile, the Litecoin Foundation is also coming out with its own version of a dedicated Litecoin payments processing platform LitePay next month.

So, we have our fingers crossed.
