When will segwit lock in? And do you think it will gain in marketshare once it does?

why Litecoin announcement has got only 170 pages on Bitcointalk and for example Dash over 6.000???
ok Litecoin was "sleeping" for years but the difference is so big...

The difference between solid and hype?


probably Smiley

Today at CoinMarketCap you can see LTC is at 18.50$ XD it's going so well



When will segwit lock in? And do you think it will gain in marketshare once it does?


it is already lock in, it will activate Wednesday 10 May probably

Just wanted to let you guys know I'm still having a 0% fee promo on https://ltc.suprnova.cc for all the miners. Would be cool to see some more hash on the pool, currently we're finding a block every two or three days so you get your coins relatively fast.

WARNING FOR NOOBS: Dash is an Instamined scam coin


View Profile WWW

Hi Litecoiners.  Can't believe I've never posted in this thread.  Weird!

Anyway, have I got this stuff right?  See you all the LTC Moon Party.  Cool

let's consider the fundamentals which differentiate Litecoin from Dash.


Litecoin is much older and has a more powerful/secure ASIC PoW network than Dash.

Litecoin is older than every coin except bitcoin that doesn't make it better. It does have a strong network, so does Dash. Monero on the other hand doesn't even have 1000 nodes.

LTC isn't the oldest altcoin (LOL, you are such a clueless noob).  But being ancient compared to Dash does mean LTC enjoys more of the Lindy effect (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindy_effect).  The Dash network is not "strong" compared to LTC because the high 1000 DASH CONOP destroys its decentralization and LTC ASICs burn far more power than Dash's puny energy consumption.


Litecoin keeps up to date with hot new features like SEGWIT, while Dash can't even keep up with RBF/CPFP and breaks simple yet crucial things like IPv6 compatibility.

SEGWIT is very controversial, and in bitcoin seems a long way off being accepted. Litecoin is using this hype as fuel for a pump. IPv6 is irrelevant at this time. Other than you I haven't seen anyone else mention it.

SEGWIT has been tested for over a year and for many very good reasons enjoys support from the majority of exchanges and hardware+software wallets.
SEGWIT was "very controversial" only because you halfwit DashHoles and Gavinistas were being bamboozled by Roger Ver and Jihan Wu, because they wanted to keep secret their covert ASICboost cheating and AntBleed backdoor.  You should feel like an idiot for buying into their manufactured r/btc controversy.  Grin



Litecoin is going to have working payment channels like Lightning soon, thanks to SEGWIT.  That means InstantX, Masternodes, and Evolution are obsolete digital trash.

Lightning Network would be even more controversial than segwit. It will harm mining. And with huge volumes of transactions being handled off chain by Lignting Network will make the whole point of the blockchain diminish. The big money elites will be delighted to be a step closer to achieving elimination of cash replaced by electronic money in their control via lightning networks. 

Lightning Network is only "controversial" because of manufactured FUD driven by Roger Ver and Jihan Wu.  It's not our fault so many people are too stupid to understand that LN TX are not off-chain and best conceptualized as Layer 1.5.  Dash doesn't really have a Lightning-killer; despite your wishful thinking all of Dash's supposed scaling features are still vaporware without even a peer-reviewed whitepaper to back them up.
Lightning Network is going to be tested in production on LTC, etc. before its BTC deployment, not to mention LN is only one among many schemata for implementing trustless bidirectional payment channels.  Meanwhile, Dash can't even keep InstantX working on mobile and IPv6!  Cheesy



Litecoin's creator has DNA from MIT & Google, while Dash's has a sketchy background in finance and a 2 year mail-order degree in web marketing from University of Phoenix.

Roll Eyes So what? Steve Jobs and Bill Gates dropped out of college. I could almost say that a degree is a hindrance. Certainly it encourages parrot like repetition of 'the mainstream' rather than original thinking.

Jobs and Gates dropped out of Reed and Harvard, not the U. of Phoenix.  In no universe are coblee's MIT CS degrees a "hindrance."
Spare the rest of us your sour grapes kvetching and deflection due to Duffield and yourself not being anywhere near qualified for admission to Reed, much less Harvard or MIT.
I understand Duffield's and your own education were limited to "parrot like repetition" but please rest assured academia's many STEM departments are absolutely teeming with original thinking and mind-boggling innovations.  Wink



Litecoin's cobblee does not shill for and pump LTC; Dash's Duffield frequently advertises his project as a legitimate investment without disclosing the risks involved.

Evan is invested in the project. And wants it to succeed. Thanks to the instamine he was able to focus on it full time.

That doesn't justify Even posting trading advice like "don't short Dash today" then quickly deleting it when advised of the statement's incriminating nature.  Evan is ethically and legally required to disclose the exorbitant and overwhelming risks involved with Dash investing, yet he does not.  Shame on him!
Coblee obviously also wants LTC to succeed and has already enjoyed great success without needing to resort to Dash's gimmicks like a very controversial massive Instamine, shilling the coin to noob housewives and other unsophisticated retail investors, and setting up a HYIP PonziNode scheme.



Litecoin was not 20% Instamined in the first 2 days; Dash was.  Litecoin never cut total emission to further enrich early miners; Dash did.

You can think of the instamine as a bit like an ICO. As already mentioned it enabled Evan to concentrate full time on the XCoin/Darkcoin/Dash project. Which we are all now benefiting from.

I cannot think of the instamine as like an ICO, because I know how ICOs work and have seen them work (thanks Viacoin!).
Comparing Dash's dishonest surprise Instamine with a pre-announced fair ICO only shows how completely you have swallowed the Evan's Gate Kool-Aid.
Dash does not benefit from its Instamine because it is defined by that unforgivable Original Sin and thus destined to be forever despised and reviled by the rest of the Bitcoin universe.  Coblee had no trouble launching LTC in his spare time while working at Google and Coinbase, no Instamine required, so why couldn't Evan get a real job instead of only running his scam full-time?  Lazy?  Stupid?  Greedy?  Some combination?  All three?



Litecoin does not require trusted 3rd party security holes; Dash makes SlaveNode users the playthings of Masternode Ponzi participants.

This point doesn't make sense.

The point makes sense, you just don't understand it.
Unlike Dash, Litecoin doesn't use Masternodes, which are security holes because they are trusted 3rd parties.
Fully participating in the Dash network requires 1000 coins; full participation in LTC doesn't even require one full Litecoin.
Is that better?  Does the point make sense to you now?



Litecoin doesn't have to keep changing its name like a disgraced over-diluted pink sheet stock; Dash does.

Dash has evolved and its name has reflected that. Litecoin is still stuck as silver to bitcoin gold and will never be anything else. The segwit hype only proves that further.

"Evolved" is a PR spin word now famous because Clinton and Obama used to excuse their hypocrisy on gay wedding cakes and transgender bathrooms.
"Pivot" is the preferred term to indicate Dash's 180 degree reversal from DarkCoin-The-Privacy-Coin to DashCoin-The-Paypal-With-Moar-Blockchain-Coin.
FYI, Segwit is now a fact on Litecoin; it's locked in and going to activate Soon.  That's not just "hype" any more, it's cold hard reality.



Litecoin is supported by Coinbase and Kraken; Dash is considered a scam and despised by most of the crypto community, and thus will never trade on those exchanges.

Those exchanges may well change their minds just as bitfinex did.

You are right for once!  Kraken did, given a $50,000 bribe now worth $250,000 (LOL GRATE JOB GIZE  Grin Cheesy) "change their minds."
I doubt Coinbase will though, given coblee's antipathy for the Dash scamcoin.
Regardless, the word most associated with Dash is "Instamine" and it's not going to change.  You're welcome for that.  Kiss



Litecoin prioritizes technology over marketing; Dash does the opposite.

This couldn't be more wrong. Litecoin has done anything original except tweaking the bitcoin parameters? Dash has done more innovation than any other coin. The marketing is just a happy side effect of the budget system. Which is working supremely well.


Dash is a fork of Litecoin, and yet here you are biting the hand that fed you.  Classy!
Dash's "innovation" is snake oil marketing, privacy theater, and good old fashioned Ponzi economics, not technology.  But congratulations on the budget system seemingly producing the recent pump (which will end when Evan dumps more Instamine coins).
With segwit, Lightning, and mimblewimble, LTC will be more technologically advanced than Bitcoin; meanwhile Dash is 10s of thousands of lines of code behind the latest Core release!  FAIL.  Tongue



Litecoin has a bus factor >>1.  Dash keeps losing devs who get wise to Evan 'The Instaminer' Scamfield's long con:

I never heard of Dash losing devs. I do notice them growing the team.

The world is not defined nor constrained by what you heard or "never heard."  Keep your incredulous appeals to ignorance to yourself and learn how to use the Search box at the top of the screen.  Oh who am I kidding, you will never do that.  So I'll spoon feed you like a little baby.

Litecoin Accounts For 22% of Total Daily Cryptocurrency Trading Volume - SegWit Effect?
Bitcoin Core’s transaction malleability fix and scaling solution Segregated Witness (SegWit) was activated on Litecoin last week. Since then, Litecoin price massively increased at an exponential rate, due to rising interest from investors and traders.
On May 4, Litecoin briefly accounted for 22 percent of total daily cryptocurrency trading volume, hugely distancing itself from Ethereum. At the time or reporting, Litecoin still remains as the second most traded cryptocurrency in the market, at 15.31 percent of the global cryptocurrency exchange volume.More

Hypothetical question: Now that Litecoin is being recognized as more than just another ALT, where do you all see this going? Does LTC have a chance to rival BTC in the future or will it always be "close but no cigar"?

I'm pretty excited for the Segwit implementation in Litecoin that F2pool will adopt. How active is the LTC community these days?

many times in life we become pretty sure and pretty excited over the prevailing scenario but takes sudden turn and we become silent.

Coinbase adds support for Litecoin as value peaks
With this in mind, litecoin is now the third cryptocurrency to gain the support of Coinbase, after the San-Francisco company recently stated that they no longer identify as a Bitcoin company, but rather as a digital currency company.
The announcement was made through a statement posted on the sites: At Coinbase, our mission is to create an open financial system for the world. We’re paving our path to that goal by creating the most trusted and easiest way to buy/sell digital currency. With the addition of Litecoin, one of the most trusted and popular digital currencies, we are moving one step closer to our goal.
It is very likely that the growth litecoin has recently experienced is the main catalyst behind the decision made by Coinbase. With this in mind, by the end of March, the digital currency exchange received approval from the New York Financial regulator to begin offering exchange services for the digital currency in the state. During the next couple of weeks, Coinbase managed to get their approval in many more regions as well.More

All we need is now a bit more growth of value and you'll see how this will affect the comments here in this topic too. Wink

Slight drop to $28 today but starting to lift again. Its expected to rally to $40 so definitely a buy while it stays under $30 which wont be long but was good to add some more to the portfolio before it does Smiley
