Founder Litecoin Charlie Lee yesterday, May 31, on his Twitter-page reported about the cooperation with the American airline Surf Air. The peculiarity of this company is that it sells a travel card for a plane, which the passenger has the opportunity to use several times. In the tweet, Lee emphasizes that the American company already uses cryptocurrencies as a means of payment – Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

VR Porn – a resource that provides access to adult content in the virtual reality, supports the use of LTC as a means of payment. Representatives of VR Porn note that the advantage of using the digital currency Litecoin is that users can conduct anonymous transactions with low commissions.
