Jaxx Blockchain Wallet to Add App Store-Approved Litecoin to All 9 Platforms
Decentral, the masterminds behind the universal blockchain wallet Jaxx, today announced plans to integrate Litecoin into its suite of software wallets on all of its desktop, mobile and Internet extension platforms.
The integration will play a part starting in October, following a notable community demand as well as pre-approval from Apple’s App Store development team, who most recently in August listed nine approved tokens available on the iPad and iPhone.
Litecoin, now just three weeks short of its 5th anniversary, is the fourth most valuable cryptocurrency by market cap, valued at approximately $180 million USD.
Jaxx Founder and CEO Anthony Di Iorio said, “We received countless requests from the community to add support for Litecoin, and we knew it was already accepted by Apple on the AppStore, so for us it’s a perfect fit and makes the most sense right now. Litecoin has stood the test of time; it’s very popular at number four, and it boasts better transaction times than Bitcoin.”
Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin, said, “I created Litecoin to complement, instead of compete, with Bitcoin. I’ve always envisioned a future where people transact in multiple different cryptocurrencies. Jaxx is one of the easiest to use wallets and I’m excited to be able to hold both my bitcoins and litecoins in the same wallet.”
Andrew Vegetabile, Director of the Litecoin Association, added, “Jaxx, like many of those within the Litecoin community, believes in the fact that we are part of one larger family of cryptocurrency. Having Litecoin integrated with Jaxx allows our community members, who are also members of other communities, to feel a sense of unity when accessing platforms that allow multiple cryptos. This partnership enables those cross-community members to access their various cryptocurrencies in one platform without having to worry about keeping up with multiple wallets and applications.”
