Litecoin foundation recently announced a collaboration with Cred.
Cred, a leading crypto-supportive borrowing and lending platform revealed the news via its official blog.
Cred was established by ex-PayPal monetary technology veterans and is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Cred’s goal is to fully harness the strength and power of blockchain in a bid to enable benefits from top monetary services.
As a not-for-profit organization, Litecoin Foundation reportedly advances intriguing blockchain technologies. This advancement gets carried out majorly via LTC.
Additionally, the Litecoin Foundation entails both full time and volunteer support from everywhere in the world.
For the uninitiated, LTC reportedly ranks overtime amongst the top ten universal cryptocurrencies. Also, the coin market capitalization exceeds three billion dollars.
Benefits of the partnership
Litecoin Foundation revealed that they entered into this strategic partnership with Cred to offer interests on LTC held as collateral. With this move, Cred clients get the chance to freeze up their holdings with Cred.
Besides, Uphold users who hold LTC get the chance to receive an interest of about eight percent on the token with the interest paid every three months. Additionally, this collaboration paves way for holders of LTC to lend their virtual coins at eye-catching interest rates.
Notably, gaining from the interest program requires Litecoin holders to freeze their holdings for a minimum of six months. Further information revealed no minimum or maximum account size to start earning. Also, LBA holders get to access premium interest rates and features like early withdrawal, and no penalty (subject to availability).
Also note that this credit procedure gets to be aided by Uphold, BitBuy, and some Cred associates.
