Litecoin, and by extension, most altcoins have been pretty quiet lately. In contrast with the altcoin hype just over one year ago, industry attention has either coalesced toward Bitcoin or shifted to Bitcoin 2.0 and blockchain applications.

Up until recently, litecoin’s price action has been pretty quiet as well, hovering within +/-10% of $1.80 since the early January volatility. Only recently has it resumed its descent, today falling into the mid-$1.60s.

In a bid to renew interest in the coin, a new website has been launched, litecoin.com. The site is a far more sophisticated than litecoin.org, the coin’s older resource portal. Built with the increasingly common mobile friendly layout and groovier graphics, it includes the following:

– Resources and education about Litecoin

– Litecoin wallets for a variety of desktop and mobile operating systems

– A list of exchanges where litecoin can be bought/sold

– A directory of merchants where litecoin can be spent

– Providers of merchant integration services

The site also emphasizes that Litecoin can be very easily integrated with applications already supporting Bitcoin. Litecoin is branded as a “global decentralized currency based on blockchain technology”.

The site was launched by the Litecoin Association, which has reportedly recruited the services of new developers and graphic artists.
