Litecoin has had a good year throughout 2017. It would make a lot of sense to use this payment method on a decentralized peer-to-peer platform. Both Bitcoin Cash and Open bazaar bitcoin are in the testing phase already, which is good news.
Moreover, it seems Litecoin integration is also on the agenda. That is a good thing, as Bitcoin remains a far too expensive payment method right now. This peer-to-peer marketplace solution has been well-received by the cryptocurrency community. However, this solution has always been hindered by only supporting Bitcoin. Although it is still the world’s leading cryptocurrency, it also has a lot of problems right now. Slow transactions, network congestion, and high fees are just some of the issues.
Not an ideal situation by any means. This alternative version of Bitcoin has seen some major success in recent weeks. Its price has also soared to a new all-time high not that long ago. It is unclear how all of this will play out in the long run, though. For now, supporting BCH makes a lot of sense.
A coin with optional privacy and some questionable development decisions is an interesting addition, for sure. There are a few different coins which could provide more privacy and would generate more transaction volume as well. An interesting decision by the protocol developers, but it may not yield any significant results. That in itself is pretty interesting. It is true Litecoin has had a good year throughout 2017. For now, the Litecoin implementation is still in the exploration phase and actual testing has yet to begin.
