Kraken is developing policies and procedures to ensure that when it acts as a Qualified Custodian  for  investment professionals, under applicable federal and state law.


  •  What does this mean for Kraken exchange clients?

New and existing clients will have the opportunity to apply for traditional financial accounts. Upon completing the on boarding procedures, they will be able to quickly and seamlessly fund their accounts on the exchange.

The Litecoin Foundation Partners With CipSoft To Announce Release Of LiteBringer


Ulrich Schlott Co-Founder of CipSoft Said :-

“For The Next Generation Of Gaming We Need A Popular And Trusted Blockchain Which Offers Low Transaction Costs And Pseudo-Anonymity. Litecoin Fits These Needs Just Perfectly.”




Traditional blockchain games use tokens for the creation of assets, which are secured with blockchain technology. But it needs a centralized server to interpret the token to create an in-game asset.


LiteBringer can operate independently from its creators, they offer optional services to make the gaming experience more pleasant. By using the blockchain, it is practically impossible to manipulate the game state.


By using the blockchain, it is practically impossible to manipulate the game state. For example, modifying a client in order to create a desired outcome is pointless.. Every action is interpreted by all clients, which also know the game state of all other players. Any asset obtained through manipulation simply does not exist for other players. Not even the creators of LiteBringer themselves can create in-game assets out of thin air.


LiteBringer lets players level up fantasy characters like knights and sorcerers, send them on increasingly difficult quests and gather loot. All weapons, resources and even characters are stored on the blockchain and can be transferred safely and directly between players.
