Blocknet has confirmed in a tweet yesterday that Litecoin (LTC) is now matching with the Blocknet protocol. This infers that LTC can now function in a cross-blockchain decentralized application (dApps).
In a tweet by Blocknet, it was stated that “#litecoin now has simple integration with cross-blockchain dApps with #Blocknet! @litecoin brings new momentum to the future of cross-chain ecosystems. http://blocknet.co/coins + Trade $LTC on new #BlockDX#DecentralizedExchange dApp #coinaday.”
In a separate message on Blocknet’s medium page, a socio blogging platform, it was stated that “Litecoin is compatible with the Blocknet Protocol, it can be used in cross-blockchain dapps such as a payment processor that will allow payments accepted in Litecoin to be paid for in any other currency or vice-versa.”
The Blocknet Protocol is a true peer-to-peer protocol between nodes on different blockchains, it gives room for data and value to be transferred between blockchains and at the same time opens the door to cross-chain dapps.
Blocknet has been developing its community since 2014 with the aim of providing a decentralized governance system and open source code that makes sure every blockchain is free to interact without centralized entities. Blocknet has Block DX, the first Dapp that is built on the Blocknet Protocol. It is a decentralised exchange which enables trading freedom for connected blockchain communities.
