Litecoin’s Role in Asia’s Future
Litecoin is a token that strives for adoption. The ultimate goal for Litecoin is to become a quicker and cheaper version of Bitcoin that makes it more suitable for use in brick and mortar stores, in essence, it makes cryptocurrency easier to adopt. Asia is a hub for cryptocurrency and is home to a number of very cryptocentric nations, including South Korea and Japan. Indeed, Hong Kong too seems to be becoming a centre for true blockchain adoption which no doubt exists as a motivation for Charlie Lee’s appearance here:
On discussing the event, Lee has said:
“Given the tremendous support that we have received from Asia, we are looking forward to hosting an engaging community gathering to thank our supporters and give attendees a firsthand view into Litecoin's future plans. Our goal of becoming the preeminent payments coin would not be possible without the strong community support that we continue to receive. That is why meetups like these are crucial as we continue to develop new ways of community engagement, such as the launch of our global volunteer network that we are announcing."
