Litecoin (LTC) contracts are now available on UpDown Options in the Crypto.com App, in addition to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH).
UpDown Options are the first CFTC-regulated crypto derivatives product that gives users the tools to capture value in all market conditions, allowing them to maximize profit and minimize losses, trade with lower costs, and hedge against price dips.
Traders can choose to buy or sell an UpDown Option depending on which direction they believe the market will go. Users can trade BTC, ETH, or LTC on four available contracts depending on their risk appetite, seven days a week. UpDown Options are currently only available to users in the US but will be available in other jurisdictions soon.
Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin forked from Bitcoin, however LTC has shorter block generation times, lower transaction fees and and faster mining difficulty retargeting. Its main benefits are its speed and low fees. Litecoin transactions are typically confirmed within minutes, with transaction fees almost negligible.
