The company is the first to officially accomplish the Litecoin Foundation’s registration process. That makes it the first official payments partner and Litecoin payments manager. Litecoin has endured a hard month or two with all the hype guiding up to the LitePay launch which was not successful. Prices surged and slid, then this week LTC has taken a beating with the rest of the altcoins.

This can be confirmed by some strongly needed good news for the Litecoin Foundation though it has had little effect. Aliant has worked in the sphere of payments for already 15 years, and the cooperation would let the Litecoin Foundation to promote an option for merchants searching for a reliable and approved payments processor. Aliant will be the encouraged variant to choose as it is one of the only firms to offer cryptocurrency possibilities in retail, ecommerce, and mobile environments. 

We are thrilled to be partnering with the Litecoin Foundation to bring a trusted, stable solution to innovative merchants who are interested in adopting cryptocurrency payments. We look forward to working together to bring Litecoin payments to mass adoption.

Eric Brown, CEO, Aliant.

Also, earlier this week Amex supported crypto trading app Abra and announced that it will be using Litecoin smart contracts as part of its payments algorithm.

However, Litecoin has been crushed this year and was one of the worse performing altcoins in March, dumping almost 40% over the month. At present Litecoin is trading around $120, down from $215 this time last month. The whole market is bear dominated and it will need a huge driving force to reverse this trend.  

Lite.IM Beta to be Released

Lite.IM will allow users to interact with Litecoin blockchain using text commands through a special API-system

Developers of the Zulu Republic blockchain project presented Lite.IM software that allows users to make transactions in the Litecoin network using SMS messages and the Telegram messenger.

Zulu Republic is convinced that Telegram is the safest messenger and provides all the necessary opportunities for testing the concept before launching SMS payments.

Representatives of the project emphasize that a lot of people live in countries with limited access to the Internet, under conditions of strict censorship by political regimes, without access to financial services. In addition, 64% of the world's population owns mobile phones, but only 33% have smartphones. This is the reason why Zulu Republic is convinced of the need to link SMS messages and Litecoin blockchain, not relying on the availability of the Internet.

By opening the world of cryptocurrency to these underserved and vulnerable populations, we aim to provide a degree of financial agency, autonomy, and (perhaps most importantly) security that they’ve been denied up until now.

Lite.IM will allow users to interact with Litecoin blockchain using text commands through a special API-system. At the moment the community already has the opportunity to use Telegram-bot to check balances and send Litecoin to LTC-addresses or e-mail. The solution is written on JavaScript. More info is available at GitHub.

The creator of "digital silver" Charlie Lee is convinced that the bear market allows us to focus on developing solutions for mass adoption of technology.
