has extended support for Litecoin as the platform undergoes an upgrade. Users on Evolve Markets can now access LTC/USD and LTC/BTC CFDs on the platform. The company's announcement was planned to coincide with the much awaited SegWit activation on Litecoin protocol.

Litecoin is now the biggest altcoin to successfully activate SegWit, which went live at around 6:00 PM London time on the 10th of May 2017. With the activation, SegWit transactions are now available for use depending on the Litecoin wallets in use.

Commenting on the inclusion of Litecoin support, Spyro said:

"We like that LTC has years of exchange support and distribution. We consider it the most fairly distributed crypto and a perfect Silver to Bitcoin's Gold. With the activation of SegWit, we are looking forward to the Lightning Network and are exploring a deeper integration of Litecoin into our platform."

The Lightning Network (LN) will be deployed next, adding a second layer protocol on top of Litecoin's existing protocol. It will enable the network to handle thousands of transactions per second, using the base on-chain later only as a settlement for payments.

Evolve Markets has gained the recognition of being one of the few platforms to allow its users to trade Bitcoin against a plethora of global macro instruments such as FOREX, commodities, and indices. The inclusion of Litecoin to the fold represents the company's mission to enable traders to use a range of cryptocurrencies to trade conventional tradable assets.

The option to trade two of the biggest cryptocurrencies against other assets shows the platform's increasing broad cover of markets and flexibility that will retain users in the long term and attract more traders to join Evolve Markets.

It offers numerous features such as instant account approval, fast deposits, Bitcoin BIT base currency accounts, up to 1:500 leverage, MetaTrader WebTrader, and negative balance protection.
