HONG KONG, August 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
CRYPTO.com, the pioneering payments and cryptocurrency platform formerly known as Monaco, announced today that Litecoin (LTC) has been added to its MCO Wallet App, joining the four original cryptocurrencies on the platform - bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), and CRYPTO.com's MCO. All can be purchased, exchanged, and sent securely within the app.
The debut of Litecoin marks the first cryptocurrency addition to the MCO platform since the MCO Wallet App launch. This addition further expands users' options for purchasing and trading cryptocurrency, and lays the groundwork for the launch of the MCO Visa Card.
Kris Marszalek, Co-Founder and CEO of CRYPTO.com said: "By listing Litecoin on the MCO Wallet App, we are deepening both the functionality of the app for users and transforming into a go-to, intuitive cryptocurrency exchange platform. We look forward to continually and regularly expanding the variety of cryptocurrencies available to our platform users. Our support of Litecoin marks an essential step in this process as we strive to broaden the audience of cryptocurrency spenders and investors."
Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin said: "Litecoin Foundation and CRYPTO.com share a common vision of accelerating the development and adoption of cryptocurrency. As Litecoin moves towards widespread acceptance as currency for a growing number of merchants, I'm excited to see Litecoin support added to the MCO Wallet App and the MCO Visa Card. We look forward to advancing the mission to expand cryptocurrency use together with CRYPTO.com by helping more users buy and spend Litecoins in their day-to-day lives."
By adding Litecoin to the MCO platform, CRYPTO.com is enabling MCO users to spend LTC, among other cryptocurrencies, with the MCO Visa Card once it becomes available in their market. Using the MCO Wallet App, users can buy, exchange, sell, and track their cryptocurrencies.
CRYPTO.com carefully reviews and evaluates cryptocurrencies on an ongoing basis for inclusion on the MCO Wallet app. This listing brings the total listed cryptocurrencies supported by MCO to five and supports the broader mission of CRYPTO.com to accelerate the world's adoption of cryptocurrency.
