Exclusive Interview with Andrew Vegetabile: Litecoin Update | Inside Bitcoins …

While the price and attention has subsided substantially, Litecoin has gone through a lot of the changes over the last couple of months. I’m here today with Andrew Vegetabile from the Litecoin Association to talk about things that have been happening in Litecoin in the past few months.

Since our talk in February regarding LTCGear, how has Litecoin changed?

There have been a number of activities and events that has happened since February between major events with Litecoin itself as well as Litecoin Association news and some other miscellaneous things. As I write this, the Litecoin network will experience its first halving within the next ~40 days. Several websites have been set up for the countdown, and here is one that we have linked on Reddit.This is obviously a major milestone for Litecoin, and we expect to see increased activity surrounding this event.

In the spirit of the Litecoin Association mission, the LA development team has created two of a series of videos aimed towards educating the general public about crypto topics. These videos can be seen on the Litecoin Association YouTube channel located here .

The subject of the two videos are private and public keys explained, and how to import/export a private key. They are presented by MLPFrank and were created by MLPfrank, Losh11, as well as a few others who helped (myself included). We look forward to continue creating these videos to help educate enthusiasts both inside and outside the crypto communities.

The Litecoin core development team (not to be confused with the LA development team, whos responsibilities are to support the Litecoin Association) has released Litecoin Core version 0.10.2.2. This latest release features the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.10.2, but with Litecoin specific patches.
