Popular bitcoin exchange BTC China announced on Tuesday that they’ve launched litecoin trading effective immediately.
The service says it’s added litecoin trading due to popular demand, putting the exchange behind BTC-e in terms of big trading houses that allow trading of the digital currency.
The move could once ignite a digital currency craze in the People’s Republic in China, similar to the bitcoin excitement we saw in the country last year (in which BTC China became the largest exchange at one point).
Traders can expect to enjoy zero commission on litecoin trades — at least for the foreseeable future.
As of this writing, litecoin last traded for LTC ¥100.40 (just over $16 USD), and the volume is just over 25,000.
Interestingly enough, the creator of litecoin, Charles Lee, is the brother of BTC China CEO Bobby Lee. Hence the ‘brothers reunited’ text on the company’s banner.
