Litecoinís Charlie Lee Says He Is Interested in Monero (XMR)

Charlie Lee is one of the most important characters in the world of crypto. After creating Litecoin as a fast and cheap alternative to Bitcoin, he became a quite controversial figure due to his decision to sell all his tokens.

However, despite remaining committed to the development of Litecoin, Charlie has been interested in many projects within the ecosystem, and in a recent interview, he revealed that Monero (XMR) is to him one of the most attention-grabbing cryptocurrencies.

Developing LTC is Better than Hodling LTC

Speaking to SFOX, Charlie Lee mentioned that his interest in the development of Litecoin goes beyond the purely economic aspect of things. He reiterated that the decision to sell all his LTC allowed him to entirely devote to the development of this blockchain without the distraction of having LTCís price as an influential factor:

These days, Iím not motivated by financial gains. Iím focused on spending all my time on Litecoin because itís my baby: I created it, I want to see it succeed, and, if it does well, I get pride, fame, whatever. Iím spending all my time on it, and time is more valuable than money to me. So Iím definitely, really, fully invested in Litecoinís success.

Thereís no need for me to have a financial stake in it. A financial stake doesnít really add that much, to be honest. Iím actually working harder right now than I worked previously on Litecoin: back when I had my LTC, I was spending most my time on Coinbase.

Monero (XMR): An Interesting Project

Lee has been an influential player in numerous blockchain technology projects. Besides having developed Litecoin (LTC), he is involved in the implementation of the SegWit protocol, Lighting Network, Atomic Swaps, and numerous bugfixes.

He commented that one of the projects he found particularly interesting was Monero (XMR), a cryptocurrency based on privacy as its strong point:

Another project that Iím interested in as Monero: I think a bit of privacy and fungibility is something thatís missing from Bitcoin and Litecoin, and itís very much needed.

Litecoin Community is also Quite InteractiveĒ

Charlie Leeís interest in Monero (XMR) is not something new, in the past Ricardo Spagni, creator of Monero commented in a joking tone that Litecoin and Monero were working in an alliance. Upon hearing about this tweet, Charlie said that regardless of being a joke, a partnership could be beneficial for both blockchains.

Also, in previous occasions, Lee has conducted several polls in which he explores the public opinion about which developments and features they would like to see in Litecoin. Answers generally point to developments implemented in Moneroís blockchain.

Likewise, during August, another poll reflected that most of the community would add the option of confidential transactions. Mr. Lee was looking to see to what extent the Litecoin community wanted to see this feature. Only 22% said they didnít want privacy added.

Charli Lee and Ricarho Spagni: Beyond Technicisms

Charlie Lee is a member of the group known as Magical Crypto Friends, to which Ricardo Spagni also belongs, so it is not difficult to note that the support between the two developers is more than technological. They belong to a community of fellow developers who share the same way of thinking.
