Me, Litecoin crypto cat narrator Mochu continues with the Litecoin news story, part one of which you can read it here, it was related to Litecoin price action of that day. Not much has changed, I guess, today I would explain the recent major developments happening in Litecoin.

Let’s warm up with some positivity first with the “Wonderful World” song

I have been enjoying some sunshine along with my buddy cat Garu and it felt so refreshing as this song was echoing in my head, “I see trees of green, red roses too, I see them bloom, for me and you, and I think to myself, what a wonderful world and I think to myself what a wonderful world”.

Please be free to sing along Louis Armstrong's song "Wonderful World"

This song is “Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. Well, it’s such a pleasant song, managing to put a smile on one’s face, so recommend you guys to hear the whole song, it would make you feel that the world is beautiful which is hard to believe these days.

 The Mimblewimble protocol upgrade to the Litecoin Network is looming ahead

A major upgrade is on the works to be implemented on the Litecoin Network by the end of September. This is the Mimblewimble protocol, which would give Litecoin privacy features while also enhancing the blockchain’s scalability.

 Privacy feature in the Litecoin Network after this protocol upgrade

Privacy features would provide users of LTC(Litecoin) with a choice to perform transactions that would shield identities of both the sender and receiver of LTC valuing the user’s right of having financial privacy. Therefore, LTC may also appeal to users of other privacy coins such as Monero and Zcash.

Some exchanges have delisted privacy coins like Monero, Dash and Zash, mostly likely because of the stance of Financial regulators who don’t want privacy coins to be supported.

However, Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin says that LTC would not be delisted by exchanges because of the added privacy feature as this upgrade will be at an extension block which is on the side and not the main chain. So exchanges who don’t want to support the privacy upgraded version of Litecoin, just don’t need to support the extension block.

 The Mimblewimble protocol to enhance scalability of Litecoin Network

Apart from this, the Litecoin network would become more scalable with the execution of the Mimblewimble protocol upgrade . This is because there will be no need to download huge amounts of data related to past LTC transactions with the application of the Initial Block Downloads. Here, transactions can be validated by just knowing the “chain state”, instead of needing to download logs of past transactional data.

The Mimblewimble protocol integration to the Litecoin Network, will happen first with a testnet launch somewhere in September end.

Fast Litecoin transactions possible now with the SegWit protocol upgrade

Meanwhile, the current slow transaction speed issues of the Litecoin Network is dealt with the use of the Segregated Witness (SegWit) protocol upgrade by many users . Segwit implementation speeds up LTC transactions by increasing block capacity.

 Litecoin Price is definitely undervalued when considering its transaction metrics

There’s been an increase in network activity in the Litecoin Network, with more active addresses and confirmed transactions than in some previous bull runs, so it’s price is undervalued from it’s historical transactional price valuations.
