Litecoin Foundation is dedicated to advancing state-of-the-art blockchain technologies primarily through Litecoin (LTC). LTC is a top 10 global cryptocurrency with a coin market cap exceeding three billion dollars and is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the world. Litecoin is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency created by Charlie Lee based on the Bitcoin protocol, however, it differs in terms of the hashing algorithm used.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Cred as our financial services partner, offering among the most competitive interest rates on Litecoin,” said Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin and Managing Director of Litecoin Foundation.
“Strong use cases should be one of the most important considerations when evaluating cryptocurrency,” said Alan Austin, Director at Litecoin Foundation. “In addition to Litecoin’s reliability, use for payments and excellent liquidity, the ability to earn interest at attractive rates through Cred’s platform further strengthens this use case. We are excited to be working with Cred to provide this offering.”
“We are delighted to partner with Litecoin Foundation, one of the oldest and most trusted names in the blockchain industry,” said Dan Schatt, Co-Founder and CEO of Cred. “We look forward to supporting the millions of Litecoin wallet holders with a more transparent, equitable set of financial services we have built, thanks to the advancement of blockchain technologies.”
The strategic partnership will allow LTC holders to earn up to ten percent interest through any of Cred’s partners including Litecoin Foundation, Bitcoin.com, Uphold, and BitBuy. Litecoin holders will be able to commit to a six-month term and receive monthly interest payments, with the option to roll over pledged assets for additional periods. Customers will receive the best Cred rates when staking Cred’s LBA utility token. No account minimum is needed and interest is paid out in fiat or cryptocurrency.
