Litecoin was recently in the spotlight in relation to the exciting subject of mainstream crypto adoption.
It’s been revealed not too long ago that Litecoin is supported by Storm Shop, which is an online platform that allows people to earn digital asset rewards for shopping online.
Users will be able to earn upwards of 40% back in LTC when they shop at the top retailers such as eBay, Macy’s, GameStop, Princess Cruise Lines, and Microsoft.
YouTube Litecoin scam is circulating online
It’s been revealed that the project director of the LTC Foundation is warning crypto enthusiasts about an apparent YouTube scam.
David Schwartz said that a YouTube channel is posting as the Foundation recently broadcast a video of the 2019 Litecoin Summit pretending it was happening live.
The description of the video reportedly stated that the Litecoin Foundation is giving away 100k LTC.
It’s been also revealed that the video deploys a classic crypto scam and it claims that anyone who sends LTC to a certain address will be receiving a larger amount of LTC on return.
There is a fake Litecoin Foundation youtube channel scamming people out of their #LTC as we speak.
DO NOT believe the channel and what it is offering! This is NOT the official Foundation youtube channel.
