CEO of VirtEx, Joseph David said, “We are very excited to be the first exchange to allow traders to buy Litecoin with Canadian dollars. This is a milestone in the history of cryptocurrency in Canada.” Since the announcement on Wednesday, the site has seen a large Litecoin trading volume. The company indicated that the move to include Litecoin trading is because the users demanded for it.
With the world’s first Bitcoin ATM installed in Canada, no doubt Canada is considered the most cryptocurrency friendly country. The development of Litecoin trading will pave the way for other cryptocurrencies in the near future as suggested by the exchange.
