The rousing question of whether there can possible crypto merger between any two blockchain project in the space seems to getting answers as a news revealed that the founder of Litecoin (LTC) blockchain technology, Charlie Lee has reinvested his interest in the possible merging of its cryptocurrency and Monero (XMR).
Previously around January, it was reported that that the founder of Monero (XMR), Riccardo Spagni disclosed that himself and Charlie Lee are discussing the possible merging of the two blockchain project which will give rise to a new one that could be tagged LAMEA.
Charlie responded on his twitter page that even though Spagni was kidding about the claim, it would be nice if the two project can merge.
Although @fluffypony was kidding here, I think it would be good for Litecoin and Monero (2 of the top non-scam coins 😄) to work together. A while back, I proposed to him that we work on making it easy for people to do on-chain atomic swaps of LTC and XMR in a decentralized way. https://t.co/idDn7Dmzf7
