Shifting into ‘Lite’speed: DeFiChain Launches Litecoin Liquidity Mining


Bitcoin Press Release: DeFiChain and Litecoin Foundation strike an agreement to offer Liquidity Mining for the popular cryptocurrency on the DeFiChain platform. DeFiChain users can earn up to two DFI per LTC block mined using the DeFiChain desktop application.

11th February 2021, Singapore: DeFiChain, the world’s leading blockchain on the Bitcoin network devoted to decentralised monetary applications, has today announced that Liquidity Mining with full rewards will be available with LTC on the DeFiChain platform. Following a successful one-week testing period, the Liquidity Mining program on DeFiChain will award two DFI coins — DeFiChain’s native digital currency — for every block mined.

By adding Liquidity Mining capabilities for LTC, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the world, the platform highlights its commitment to delivering more opportunities, options and diversity for its users, and adds to the existing suite of benefits provided to its users.

“Litecoin is one of the most popular and widely used cryptocurrencies in the world, and we are delighted to be partnering with them to offer Liquidity Mining for Litecoin on DeFiChain. Liquidity Mining on DeFiChain allows market making to be done in a fair and transparent manner” 

Said Julian Hosp, Chairman of DeFiChain. He continued:

“In order for it to be used by such a vast community, it has to be highly liquid and available in multiple markets. The integration and availability of LTC on the DeFiChain platform gives users another option, thereby empowering holders of the cryptocurrency to provide measurable, beneficial liquidity and earn rewards in return.” 

DeFiChain’s DEX (decentralised exchange) offers fast transaction speeds, low fees, low transaction fees, high security, and a fully decentralised trading environment. On DeFiChain, a gamut of Litecoin holders can utilise their holdings and computing resources to provide liquidity and earn sizable returns in the process.

Jay Milla from Litecoin Foundation said: 

“This marks the beginning of a new era for LTC, being available on one of the world’s fastest growing decentralised platforms. DeFiChain’s mission, to provide fast, intelligent and transparent financial services is aligned to our own. Throughout the years, Litecoin has continued to grow to become an industry leader, as one of the oldest and most widely utilized and traded cryptocurrencies. It continues to maintain its position within the top cryptocurrencies ranked by market capitalisation.”

DeFiChain, one of the leading blockchains built upon the Bitcoin’s network infrastructure, which democratises market making and liquidity provisions by empowering its rapidly growing community. With this partnership, traders and investors, both retail and institutional, will be able to earn rewards based on the actual, measurable liquidity they create for Litecoin, which in this case, equates to two DFI per block mined. 

To access LTC-DFI Liquidity Mining pools on DeFiChain, simply download the DeFiChain desktop app from, deposit DFI to the DEX to swap part of it for LTC, then select “Liquidity” from the menu on the left-hand side and the “+” symbol under “Add or remove liquidity” to select the amount to add. It couldn’t be easier.
