Chinese bitcoin exchange Huobi has announced on their website plans to begin support for litecoin trading beginning on the 19th of March. With an estimated 20 percent of the exchange’s user base saying that have money in litecoin, the company said they decided to add the functionality after careful consideration.
The move comes not terribly long after Huobi’s competitor BTC China announced the availability of litecoin trading with no commission, a move that is designed to keep up with the growth of the number two most popular cryptocurrency.
Canada-based VirtEx also added litecoin trading in late-February, so you can see this is starting to become a trend in the exchange community.
One of the larger exchanges, BTC-e, has been one of the main hubs for traders of litecoin, but services the likes of Bitstamp have yet to integrate litecoin trading. [via CoinDesk]
