Toshi Adds LitecoinOne of the most common requests of Toshi was that it expand to other cryptocurrencies. Primarily, Toshi has been focused on Ethereum and Ethereum-based projects but it announced this week that Toshi will finally be adding support for other cryptos - including Litecoin! There's no release date yet, but the buzz is already flying through the crypto sphere. Charlie Lee summed up the community's excitement:

How is Litecoin (LTC) Doing?Litecoin is currently selling for $133.45, which puts the coin down 1.89% in the past 24 hours. The Toshi news isn't helping LTC right now, but as Charlie Lee was so apt to put, day-to-day price fluctuations aren't the be-all, end-all.

Use Litecoin to Fly (to the Moon)Speaking of real-use cases, flight service provider TapJets ran a Twitter poll Tuesday to decide what crypto it should accept next as a payment method and Litecoin was chosen! Ripple (XRP) was also voted for, so TapJets will work on incorporating both cryptos into its payment system. TapJets was in communication first with Litecoin and the project is now a go. You'll be able to fly with Litecoin (LTC) through TapJets by June 1st.
