The momentum and excitement in the use of cryptocurrency is undeniable and we are ready to facilitate online shopping for our customers.

Now, with this partnership, Walmart will offer shoppers to use Litecoin to take advantage of the cryptocurrency’s features. Charlie Lee, Litecoin founder and CEO of the Litecoin Foundation, shared his thoughts for the partnership:
LTC’s super low fees and fast transaction times are perfect for a leading e-commerce store like Walmart. We are excited and excited that our cryptocurrency is now backed by Walmart and more are opening. New opportunities arise for any trader to accept Litecoin in the future.
Why did Walmart choose Litecoin (LTC)?
Why Litecoin? Launched in 2011, Litecoin is one of the oldest altcoin projects in the crypto ecosystem. Litecoin (LTC) is similar to Bitcoin (BTC), uses the same code as the latter and shares many similarities. However, Litecoin is cheaper and faster than Bitcoin. Litecoin is also a P2P cryptocurrency that facilitates cross-border transactions and improves digital payment systems. Like Bitcoin, Litecoin has no central authority. It is also designed to be used for cheaper transactions and more efficient for everyday use. Although mining Litecoin requires more advanced technology than Bitcoin, blocks are actually produced up to four times faster. Litecoin also processes financial transactions much faster.
How did the announcement affect the altcoin LTC price?
After the news, LTC price watches were in great demand. It put its intraday gains close to 30% and is currently trading at $226 with its extremely volatile price. LTC’s chart after the September 7 crash created this unique picture:
