Litecoin Users Can Now Checkout At One Of The Largest U.S. Retailers

Newegg recently announced that it is integrating Litecoin payments on its e-commerce website. The integration comes after BitPay announced that they now accept Litecoin payments. As per a press release, Newegg will be the first merchant to accept Litecoin through BitPay. It was also the first merchant to accept Bitcoin payments back in 2014.

Newegg is one of the biggest retailers focused on items including computer hardware and consumer electronics. The commerce company boasts over 32 million users. Millions of users are now able to check out their items from Newegg using LTC.

Andrew Choi, Senior Brand Manager at Newegg, said:

“As the first major online shopping destination to work with BitPay to accept Bitcoin and now Litecoin, Newegg supports our early-adopter customers globally and emphasizes our commitment to bring innovation to the online shopping experience. The excitement and momentum around cryptocurrency are undeniable, and we are committed to making it easy for our customers to shop online.”

The partnership between Newegg and BitPay is not a new one. Back in 2014, the pair had first partnered up to set up Bitcoin payments for Newegg customers in the US. And later on, users in Canada were able to check out using Bitcoin.

The success of the partnership so far continues to fuel their continued collaboration. Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin, said:

“Litecoin’s fast transaction times and super low fees are ideal for an e-commerce giant like Newegg. We’re extremely excited that Litecoin is now supported by BitPay, making it very easy for any merchants to accept LTC.”

Litecoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

If the Litecoin price fails to repeatedly break above the $150 psychological level, it should drop to the 50-day SMA($138).
