Developers are actively building apps for Litecoin Lightning Network

Ever since Litecoin activated SegWit, people have been waiting to see what happens next. With Segregated Witness active, porting the Lightning Network to Litecoin is certainly possible.

It will take time until the Lightning Network ecosystem is up to full strength, though.

The bigger question is what types of applications people would like to see being developed. There are unlimited potential use cases for Lapps and the Lightning Network application layer. The future鈥檚 looking bright for Litecoin, that much is evident. Now that the LTC price is going up again...
