DeFiChain_Litecoin

Bitcoin Press Release: DeFiChain and Litecoin Foundation strike an agreement to offer Liquidity Mining for the popular cryptocurrency on the DeFiChain platform. DeFiChain users can earn up to two DFI per LTC block mined using the DeFiChain desktop application.

 

11th February 2021, Singapore: DeFiChain, the world’s leading blockchain on the Bitcoin network devoted to decentralised monetary applications, has today announced that Liquidity Mining with full rewards will be available with LTC on the DeFiChain platform. Following a successful one-week testing period, the Liquidity Mining program on DeFiChain will award two DFI coins — DeFiChain’s native digital currency — for every block mined.

 

By adding Liquidity Mining capabilities for LTC, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the world, the platform highlights its commitment to delivering more opportunities, options and diversity for its users, and adds to the existing suite of benefits provided to its users.

 

“Litecoin is one of the most popular and widely used cryptocurrencies in the world, and we are delighted to be partnering with them to offer Liquidity Mining for Litecoin on DeFiChain. Liquidity Mining on DeFiChain allows market making to be done in a fair and transparent manner” 

 

Said Julian Hosp, Chairman of DeFiChain. He continued:

 

“In order for it to be used by such a vast community, it has to be highly liquid and available in multiple markets. The integration and availability of LTC on the DeFiChain platform gives users another option, thereby empowering holders of the cryptocurrency to provide measurable, beneficial liquidity and earn rewards in return.” 

 

DeFiChain’s DEX (decentralised exchange) offers fast transaction speeds, low fees, low transaction fees, high security, and a fully decentralised trading environment. On DeFiChain, a gamut of Litecoin holders can utilise their holdings and computing resources to provide liquidity and earn sizable returns in the process.

 

Jay Milla from Litecoin Foundation said: 

 

“This marks the beginning of a new era for LTC, being available on one of the world’s fastest growing decentralised platforms. DeFiChain’s mission, to provide fast, intelligent and transparent financial services is aligned to our own. Throughout the years, Litecoin has continued to grow to become an industry leader, as one of the oldest and most widely utilized and traded cryptocurrencies. It continues to maintain its position within the top cryptocurrencies ranked by market capitalisation.”

 

DeFiChain, one of the leading blockchains built upon the Bitcoin’s network infrastructure, which democratises market making and liquidity provisions by empowering its rapidly growing community. With this partnership, traders and investors, both retail and institutional, will be able to earn rewards based on the actual, measurable liquidity they create for Litecoin, which in this case, equates to two DFI per block mined. 

 

To access LTC-DFI Liquidity Mining pools on DeFiChain, simply download the DeFiChain desktop app from https://defichain.com/downloads/, deposit DFI to the DEX to swap part of it for LTC, then select “Liquidity” from the menu on the left-hand side and the “+” symbol under “Add or remove liquidity” to select the amount to add. It couldn’t be easier.

Litecoin Cash – The First Litecoin Fork

Bitcoin Press Release: Litecoin Cash has announced that the countdown has begun towards the release of a new cryptocurrency that will be born from a hard fork of Litecoin (LCC). At Litecoin block 1371111, Litecoin Cash (LCC) will be created.

February 8th, 2018, London, United Kingdom: Everyone holding Litecoin will automatically receive 10 Litecoin Cash for every Litecoin they own. While Litecoin has always been mined with Scrypt, Litecoin Cash is a proof of work cryptocurrency securing the network using the SHA256 hashing algorithm. This allows an extension of life for older Bitcoin mining hardware, which is no longer powerful enough to mine Bitcoin; the lower anticipated difficulty of mining Litecoin Cash will put such legacy hardware to effective use.

A SHA256 Coin For The Real World

Litecoin Cash has significant advantages compared to the other main SHA256-mined coins, Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). While those currencies both have a 10-minute block time, Litecoin Cash’s 2.5-minute block target allows much faster transaction confirmation.

Compared to Litecoin itself, the new fork features superior mining difficulty retargeting, via the proven DarkGravity algorithm used by Dash. Transaction fees are also reduced by 90% to provide incentive for real-world use.

In order to ensure a fair launch, Litecoin Cash implements slow-start control to block rewards and intend to pre-release a bootstrap file to prevent a blockchain download race once the wallets become available (slated to happen shortly after the fork block).

The network will use a new address prefix and replay attack prevention to eliminate inter-chain issues and minimize user confusion.

The Litecoin Fork

The markets have become accustomed to Bitcoin hard forks over recent months, but Litecoin Cash brings the concept to a new space and potentially a new set of users. As such, the development team is very keen to provide user education and promote “responsible forking”.

A private key that holds currency should never be pasted into any website or wallet application in order to claim forked coins, and the team encourages users to move their Litecoin to a completely new address after the fork, before using the private key from the “old” address to claim their Litecoin Cash.

Although the fork is currently expected to occur at 02:00 UTC on Monday 19 February, the predicted fork time may move slightly earlier or later, as the precise time block 1371111 is reached depends on the available Litecoin mining power.

How to Claim Litecoin Cash

Firstly, NEVER paste private keys that hold any currency into any website or wallet in order to claim forked coins (including ours). Practice responsible forking:

  • Wait for the fork
  • Move your Litecoin to a new address
  • Use the private key for the “old” address to claim your Litecoin Cash

Litecoin cash have made is really easy to claim. No need to mess around in the debug console. Just download a wallet for you platform straight off the offical Litecoin cash website, you’ll find a menu item to help you import your Litecoin private keys and claim your Litecoin Cash.

IN ALL CASES: Practice safe forking. That means you must never paste private keys that hold live funds into ANY website or wallet in order to claim forked coins — including the Litecoin Cash website.
