John Carvalho recently conducted an interview with Charlie Lee, the Founder of Litecoin on his Youtube channel called ‘Bitcoin Error Log’.
John mostly concentrated on topics related to both Bitcoin and Litecoin and the recent changes which are occurring in both the platforms.
Some of the points which Charlie mentioned, in the beginning, was about the place of Litecoin in the blockchain ecosystem. According to him, Litecoin can be considered as complementary Bitcoin and that they are aiming to implement better payment methods. Bitcoin concentrates more on storing the values and he thinks that both the firms can work side by side.
Both the coins act separately and he believes that Litecoin is helping in the improvement of the ecosystem in multiple ways and that he does not want to be detrimental about Bitcoin.
Cheaper fees and faster transactions are the two best features of Litecoin. He mentioned that Litecoin will always be cheaper than Bitcoin because of its larger capacity.
He was also asked about the Litecoin Foundation further. The Litecoin Foundation was formed last year and is run by Charlie Lee who is the current Managing Director along with three other Directors. They hired developers to improve the functioning of Litecoin and make it more user-friendly. They are presently working on Litecoin’s core reference client and on increasing Litecoin network by introducing new marketing techniques.
During the chat, he described the entire issue regarding LitePay scandal. He stated that the initial idea behind introducing LitePay was to make payment methods easier for its users by using a consumer credit card facility. The firm had invested $50,000 for the same. But the LitePay team failed to deliver the project and they noticed that the team did not have the potential to execute the project. Later, LitePay team sold their assets and checked out.
Regarding Abra’s involvement with Litecoin, he said that the firm decided to migrate from Bitcoin’s smart contracts to Litecoin’s network due to the higher trading rates.
While comparing Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash, he said that both the technologies are almost the same except that all the Bitcoin holders will have Bitcoin Cash by default due to which the BCH supporters are more. He also mentioned that the security for Bitcoin Cash is very low because it shares the same hashing function as Bitcoin, making it more exposed to hacks.
Charlie believes that the price variation of any coin is only due to the market rates and the underlying technology should not be responsible for the same.
Towards the end of the session, he stated that Fungibility is the main feature which all the transactions that involve money are lacking. He says that we can expect ‘bulletproof and confidential transactions’ to be implemented based on the Lightning Network within a year.
And finally, he mentioned some of the reasons why somebody should hold or buy Litecoin; It provides much value and one can use their money without being censored and the transactions can be done quickly and effectively.
Johnny T, a cryptocurrency enthusiast tweeted:
“Charlie great interview! When will confidential transactions be added to litecoin? Also will that be enabled by default? ”
Another Twitterati says:
“@SatoshiLite I use #litecoin bitcoin as my store of values, my investments, my daily transactions. Personally I’m more comfortable with #litecoin. I tend to believe in you and litecoin more then I do bitcoin and the longterm future I see better with ltc how does that make u feel?”
Coty Cech, a Litecoin supporter says:
“Awesome interview, tone is hella monotonous lol but questions were quite detailed and relevant. Big supporter of Litecoin, I’m glad you had Charlie on “
