Thanks for the update @Ducky .

I posted a comment on a different thread about LiteCoin’s recent MWEB privacy upgrade, see here - Litecoin privacy update

I feel there could be a HUGE opportunity for the Incognito Dev & Growth teams to engage with the LiteCoin Foundation ( https://www.litecoin.net/ ) to support and promote MWEB.

Litecoin is being delisted on some exchanges for it’s new privacy feature. I’m sure they would be keen to promote their MWEB adoption on the best Pro-privacy Incognito network :slightly_smiling_face:

What are folks thoughts on this?


I think it’s great and make sense to talk to Litecoin team for a partnership! @Jayce_Nguyen from our Growth team is trying to contact the team and let’s see if we can push forward a campaign for their tokens on our privacy exchange and have liquidity pool added by Litecoin users.

Thanks for reminding us on this btw. :raised_hands:
