Litecoin’s Charlie Lee is leaving Coinbase receiving a $ 12,000 donation

A $ 12,000 donation has accompanied Litecoin creator Charlie Lee, who has left Coinbase to work full time on his creation.

After Lee announced he was stepping down from his Coinbase duties to devote himself to Litecoin development, his Litecoin foundation received a donation of 438 LTC – around $ 12,000 for Tuesday’s price.

The donor, known by his handle JoeyBTC, made himself known on a Twitter request.

you are very welcome! Keep it up ?

Litecoin fell from a circle of $ 35 per coin when Bitcoin itself collapsed, with Lee’s bullish announcement having little impact on investor opinion.

Today is my last day at @coinbase! I will miss working with all of you.

The move marks the first major event for the Litecoin community since the SegWit activation resulted in a huge price spike in May.

While Litecoin was the star of the altcoin markets a long time ago in terms of cryptocurrency price action in 2017, just six weeks ago, it has consistently outperformed other top 10 assets and bucked downtrends.

The reactions to Lee on Twitter were therefore intent on forecasting a new surge in a market currently dominated by Ethereum (ETH).

Last week, Trezor became the first Litecoin hardware wallet to support SegWit.
