The collaboration between Monero and Litecoin might become possible, as the creators of Litecoin and Monero stated in their tweets. Riccardo Spagni stated that he and Charlie Lee met and had a talk about possible merger of Litecoin and Monero alliances which may cross-improve operations with both coins.

Moreover, Charlie Lee claimed that it will take some work for atomic swaps to work properly on Monero and it's up to Monero devs and community to decide if this is a good idea, but if the collaboration happens, it's going to be huge, but no longer an unexpected surprise.

At the moment of press, those are the main parameters of the coins:

  • Monero. Average price. $317,46 
  • Market Cap. $4 970 920 492
  • 24h Volume. $74 176 900
  • Litecoin. Average price. $181,87
  • Market Cap. $9 997 338 771
  • 24h Volume. $362 351 000
