Charlie Lee addresses the advantages of Litecoin
Now, creator Charlie Lee said that there are various reasons for which LTC is a necessary and essential crypto.
In a new interview on the Let’s Talk Bitcoin podcast, Lee talked about the coin’s most significant strengths and its overall liquidity.
“So with shorter blocktimes and cheaper fees [than Bitcoin], it’s quite good for payments, and people use it quite a bit. And it’s also good for testing new stuff. Litecoin’s market cap is a lot smaller than Bitcoin’s. So we can take a little bit more risk and do stuff that potentially Bitcoin would be too conservative to do…” Lee said., as cited by the online publication the Daily Hodl.
He continued and explained that “These network protocols, currencies – they have a network effect. So if everyone’s using it, you want to be using the one with the most liquidity, the one that’s on all the exchanges that you can easily switch back between fiat and cryptocurrency.”
Lee stated that LTC benefits from all this because, for example, “the Chinese exchanges all added Litecoin as a second cryptocurrency.”
Lee also made sure to point out the fact that LTC is on most exchanges these days. People can easily move their money to LTC and BTC and this is helping a lot regarding the onboarding of new users.
