Litecoin Foundation has acquired a strategic partner, Cred
The Litecoin Foundation today announced a “strategic partnership” with Cred, a licensed crypto loan company with more than $ 300 million in capital lending. Cred has provided Litecoin with its own earnings platform and promises up to 10 percent annual interest on the deposit. Funds can be withdrawn at any time and interest is paid monthly. The 10 percent value is based on the original deposit amount: if you deposit 100 LTC, even if that amount rises to $ 1,000 in six months, you still get only $ 10. But it works the other way too: If Litecoin drops to zero, you still get $ 10.
