Representatives of the Litecoin Foundation together with the developers of Beam  cryptocurrency are exploring the possibility of integrating MimbleWimble technology into Litecoin.

We have started exploration towards adding privacy and fungibility to Litecoin by allowing on-chain conversion of regular LTC into a Mimblewimble variant of LTC and vice versa. Upon such conversion, it will be possible to transact with Mimblewimble LTC in complete confidentiality.

Affected by the actions of hackers in mid-January, New Zealand Crypto Exchange Cryptopia opened up the possibility of depositing and withdrawing Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin.

As stated in the company, “hot” wallets will be replenished manually from Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 17:00 New Zealand time. Withdrawals will be unavailable at other times or on local national holidays.

According to some reports, the damage from a hacker attack on Cryptopia could have amounted to $ 16 million, and the exchange itself said that in the worst scenario, it lost a maximum of 10% of all its funds.
