The Creator of Litecoin Charlie Lee (Charlie Lee) announced support for LTC through Lightening Network in the new smartphone HTC Exodus to the team which he joined as a consultant. The manufacturer refuses to support bitcoin and is going to unveil a blockchain-smartphone to the public in Q3 of this year.

HTC Exodus Met the team last week and was really excited to hear the phone will support LTC and Lightning Network on Litecoin natively! I will be an advisor as I see having a secure crypto phone that makes simple LN is needed for mass adoption.

P. S. No, they will not remove BTC.
