The Litecoin community is buzzing about upcoming Litecoin hardfork that will produce a new digital asset – Litecoin cash. According to the announcement on the bitcointalk forum on February 3, Litecoin developers team is preparing a fork that will take place on Sunday, February 18 (at first it was scheduled on February 19). Anyone holding Litecoin will get ten times that amount of Litecoin Cash. Litecoin fans are puzzled as they do not see any clear reason for this branching out. Unlike Bitcoin, it has never experienced issues either with transaction time or with high fees. While fork does not solve any practical problems encountered by cryptocurrency users, it will be convenient for legacy Bitcoin SHA256 mining hardware users. The team behind the fork is anonymous: no full names, no links to social media accounts are provided, which is also rather suspicious.
Litecoin Cash presents itself as a faster, cheaper cryptocurrency, easier to be mined with a more simple technology than its competitors
Ripple stabilizes while awaiting new money inflows. $0.81 mark is the level to break to recover bullish strength. Litecoin Cash (LCC) has been introduced to the market after forking from Litecoin. This hard fork apparently offers some advantages that might be very attractive for the markets. Most of all, a certification speed of just 2.5 minutes instead of the usual 10 minutes. Moreover, LCC can be mined with technology that it no longer works for Bitcoins, cheaper and with less energy consumption. Litecoin holders will receive 10 LCC for each LTC they have.

At this point, it’s fair to say the cryptocurrency industry is constantly evolving. Over the course of the past couple of months, we have seen a number of countries roll out new uses for virtual currencies. In Canada, for instance, individuals can now use Bitcoin to purchase meals from KFC. In Australia, travelers will soon be able to purchase items using Bitcoin in the Brisbane Airport. Now, we’ve been informed that luxury flats in Dubai can be purchased with the virtual currency. In fact, there have already been 50 flats sold in Dubai for Bitcoin. Business Insider published a report yesterday which stated that two UK entrepreneurs have sold 50 luxury flats in Dubai for Bitcoin. This is significant news as it suggests the cryptocurrency industry, at least in Dubai, might be making a move into real estate.
Last month, the world was informed that the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange will roll out its very own initial coin offering (ICO). The ICO offering commenced on February 7 and will close three days from now. Two days after the ICO offering began, Reuters reported that the public should expect in the coming weeks to see a draft law surface from both the Gibraltar government and Gibraltar Financial Services Commission. Reportedly, the draft law will put forth the ICO regulations in the British overseas territory. For those who don’t know, the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange is a subsidiary of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange, which is an extremely crypto-friendly exchange. According to lawmakers, this is significant news as the draft law marks the first ever set of ICO regulations. The draft law that is thought to surface in the next couple of weeks will help to regulate the sale, promotion, and distribution of digital tokens on the British overseas territory.
