Litecoin features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency than the leading math-based currency

Canada's largest crypto exchange, QuadrigaCX, has started trading Litecoin, as Charlie Lee, Litecoin's creator, reports on Twitter:

Trading started on July 17th with the addition of Litecoin trading on the exchange by way of a CAD/LTC trading pair. However, QuadrigaCX encourages its customers to take extra care when placing orders during this launch as the orderbook may be thin until more densely populated over-time.

The news received an extremely positive feedback not only on Twitter, but also on reddit.com:

I'm Canadian and avoided your exchange because of no LTC. Finally I'll sign up.

As the company reports, in the future, they may also consider adding a XBT/LTC pair and possibly other tokens.
