    Wanchain Integrates Litecoin 

    Wanchain recently integrated Litecoin into its cross-chain ecosystem. The crypto community can agree that it is essential to create decentralized cross-chain solutions to preserve the decentralized nature of blockchain technology. Wanchain is currently the only service provider that has this functionality on its mainnet and is ready to be used. 

    The Wanchain team specializes in building decentralized bridges to connect different siloed blockchain networks. Their efforts have even attracted the attention of the State Grid Corporation of China, the world’s largest utility company, which is using Wanchain’s technology to build a data management system. For developers, this infrastructure allows for more complex applications and DeFi products.

    As Wanchain’s cross-chain infrastructure has been in development since 2017, the project has come a long way. Wanchain already connects to Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOSIO, Binance Smart Chain, and the XRP Ledger and, most recently, Litecoin in its current form. Future additions will include Polkadot, another prominent blockchain and crypto ecosystem. The addition of Litecoin is especially intriguing and will introduce DeFi opportunities to LTC holders worldwide. Furthermore, this bridge will make LTC usable with EVM-compatible smart contracts.

    Wanchain uses a proof-of-stake validator node concept to achieve network consensus to ensure a safe and stable environment. This system is proprietary and goes by the name of Galaxy Consensus. However, as more bridges are built connecting other blockchains, it will prove essential to provide top-notch security and peace of mind at all times. 

    To perform cross-chain transactions with Wanchain, users have two options. One can either use the WanBridge Web interface or the Wanchain Desktop Wallet. Both options are accessible to anyone and require no special technical knowledge. 

    Litecoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    The buyers are on course to push the Litecoin price above the $140 resistance barrier. Upon successfully doing that, LTC should reach the 20-day SMA.
