According to Nexo, the addition of Litecoin will simplify selling pressure and make “LTC HODLing” easier in the long run, leveraging the firm’s instant credit lines, a powerful tool for developing tax-efficiency. The company said:
“Allowing LTC Holders to borrow against their assets rather than sell them when they need access to instant cash adds an incredibly powerful utility feature to LTC.”
The company also revealed the decision to add Litecoin, comparing both Litecoin and Nexo’s goals:
“Litecoin has always focused on expanding the decentralized finance agenda as a means of social inclusion and generating financial freedom — two goals that align the endeavor with the mission of the Nexo enterprise.”
At the time of writing, Litecoin is trading at $60.57, down 0.11% over the past 24-hours, according to data from CoinMarketCap.
