As Litecoin celebrated its eighth birthday on Oct. 13, its founder Charlie Lee fended off criticism about LTC and the Foundation’s finances. As Litecoin (LTC) celebrated its eighth birthday on Oct. 13, its founder Charlie Lee had to fend off crypto Twitter’s FUD — fear, uncertainty and doubt — about the altcoin.

Litecoin (LTC) and other alts are becoming increasingly prevalent among crypto “sextortionists” since they allow to avoid detection more easily, a new research says.

The bitcoin address was left as a plain text string in the email, so it could be easily copied.” Compromising browser history as leveragePer the report, perpetrators of “sextortion” usually claim that they have installed so..

Litecoin (LTC) founder Charlie Lee has addressed recent project abandonment allegations. In a series of tweets published on Aug. 10, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee addressed allegations that Litecoin did not have further plans for the coming year: “Recently there's been a lot of FUD about Litecoin having no code commits in 2019. When you look at Litecoin GitHub, it would seem like we did no work in 2019. There are actually 2 reasons why this is the case even though we have been developing.” The first reason Lee provided for the apparent lack of work on Litecoin is that most of the updates applied to Litecoin were originally developed for Bitcoin (BTC) and as such, only the original development dates appear. He explained: “What this means in practice is that although we did work on and release the latest Litecoin Core in May of 2019, if you look at GitHub, most of th..
