How to Participate in the Litetokens Airdrop

The Litetokens Cryptocurrency Project Launched in March of 2015 to create a decentralized exchange on top of the Litecoin Network. Due to outside factors, development of the project came to a halt less than a year later. In October of 2020, Development was reactivated to make this blockchain independent and the first Litetokens Mainnet was created.

Litetokens [https://github.com/litetokens] is a fork of Tron [https://tron.network] and has the purpose of being the Main Chain of the Lite Network [https://github.com/liteprotocol]. XLT is about speed and is currently capable of 1000 TPS (Transactions Per Second), making it faster than 99.99% of all cryptocurrency platforms available. Tron is still faster than Litetokens and it is expected that Tron may acheive 10,000 TPS before the Lite Network as its team is further along on the research needed to do so.

XLT is a new network. Litetokens is actually operating on its Mainnet Candidate 10. Of the previous Nine Network Candidates, 1 failed a Doomsday test, and the others would create XLT Ghost Networks. Its blocks are secured by its Envoys, and Super Envoys take the cake. Anyone can apply to be a Super Envoy and the only way to be an XLT Super Envoy is be an Envoy. The Litetokens Team currently controls Three Seats on the Envoy Council. The Envoy Council is made of 27 Members which means there are 24 open seats.

At the New XLT Genesis, 99 Billion XLT were forged just as they were on the original network. Here is the transaction record for block #0:

The Litescan API [https://api.litescan.org] can be used to get network information in the event a user wishes not to run a local node and is how the above information was inserted into this article.

The Litetokens Team is conducting the first Airdrop of XLT to the General Public. This first round will distribute 1 Billion XLT to all who have both an Email and Litetokens Address and a Google Account. The First Participant will receive 1 Million XLT.
