    $LTC market cap is already 3x more than $ZEC and 2x more than $XMRDaily active addresses/transactions (non trading volume) is consistently 10x more 🐔When MimbleWimble launches #Litecoin will take a huge chunk of users/market cap from zec and xmr@jonnylitecoin @johnkim77

  • From CryptoJebb:

    I just opened my Exodus wallet and saw my balance of LTC. Made me remember my very first crypto purchase, .25 LTC at $41.02 per coin in August of 2017. Man…. That was a lot of money for me back then…. Time to buy 250 Litecoin 😂 #Nostalgia

  • From DaddyCool1991:

    Once #Litecoin adds Mimblewimble it will be the only #Cryptocurrency in the market cap’s Top 10 currently with fungibility.Let that sink in a minute.

As for a news story related to Litecoin getting some buzz:

Litecoin plans cross chain communication with Cardano and huge update

Conceived as a feature that will improve the scalability of Litecoin’s network, the initial block download will allow transactions to be verified only by checking the “state of the chain”….Therefore, MimbleWimble will have a different verification mechanism than Bitcoin, a miner will not need to download all blocks on Litecoin to verify transactions….Through a publication on Twitter, Hoskinson stated that he “loves” the idea of a cross chain communication between Litecoin and Cardano….I love the idea of testing cross chain communication between Litecoin and Cardano.
