Litecoin trading launches!

The ribbon has been cut! You can start trading Litecoin on the most popular non-custodial P2P crypto marketplace.

Last week, we announced the arrival of Litecoin (LTC) to LocalCryptos, and enabled users to post their ads ahead of the launch. Today, the LTC marketplace goes live!

To celebrate the launch, we’re cutting our trading fee to 0% for the first three days. Until June 18, buying and selling LTC on LocalCryptos is free!

How will non-custodial escrow work on Litecoin?

Because Bitcoin and Litecoin are so similar, we can port our non-custodial BTC escrow script to Litecoin without any major changes. LTC escrows on LocalCryptos will be on-chain P2SH transactions.

Your Litecoin wallet on LocalCryptos will be self-custodial and SegWit-enabled. Your keys—your coins.

About Litecoin

Litecoin (LTC) is a cryptocurrency and an open-source project created in 2011 by former Google employee Charlie Lee.

Dubbed as “the silver to Bitcoin’s gold”, its main purpose is to serve as a fast, near-zero-cost payment method to be used worldwide in a secure, decentralized way.

Is that all?

Of course not! We’re working on bringing tons of new feats and updates to LocalCryptos, including new cryptos.

In fact, there’s a new crypto coming soon to LocalCryptos. Can you guess which one is next in our list? Hint: it’s not Dogecoin.

Stay tuned to our social networks and keep your subscription on, because on June 29 we’re announcing the next cryptocurrency to join the most popular non-custodial peer-to-peer crypto marketplace.
