The Litecoin Foundation – a Singapore based non-profit building and  supporting the Litecoin ecosystem has just announced the launch of  ‘OmniLite’, a decentralised token creation platform which is being  acclaimed as the ‘Ethereum Killer’, introducing Smart Contracts, DAOs,  Tokenised assets and NFT functionality onto the Litecoin Network.

OmniLite is a an open-source platform that facilitates the creation of  decentralized tokens and smart contracts along with crypto-assets such  as tokens and NFT’s. OmniLite, being a layered protocol built on top of  Litecoin’s blockchain, takes advantage of its reputable network security  and low fees. The tokens created via OmniLite can be considered to be  an extension of Litecoin and as a result, the transactions from these  tokens are recorded on its blockchain. Consequentially, all digital  assets created via OmniLite benefit from the network advantages Litecoin  has to offer.

OmniLite can also facilitate the  issuance of stable-coins such as Tether (USDT) on top of Litecoin,  something that may in fact be happening considering Craig Sellers a  co-founder of Tether and member of the Omni foundation has been congratulating the team on the launch. Jay Milla, the groups marketing director said of the announcement:

Over  the years, the rapidly growing and ever-evolving cryptocurrency  industry has become a hub of opportunity for builders across the globe.  Litecoin, considered to be one of the most enduring cryptocurrencies  over the past decade, is a prime example of this aspiration to tweak and  innovate.
Due to Litecoin’s minimal fee’s, along with its  decade-long persistence and 100% network uptime, the opportunity to  build assets on top of the Litecoin ecosystem was only a matter of time.  Thanks to the hard work by Litecoin developer
Loshan and the Litecoin Foundation, with OmniLite, creating on top of the Litecoin network has now become significantly easier.
While  other networks such as Bitcoin and Ethereum’s have been experiencing  saturation issues, developers may want to take advantage of the  significantly cheaper transaction costs and security Litecoin has to  offer. Thanks to OmniLite, building a layered economy on top of Litecoin  has never been this accessible.

Currently, OmniLite supports a wallet mode (Litecoin Omni) and is available on three platforms: Windows, Linux and MacOS.
