Recently, Litecoin community adopted its new logo and went for a brand makeover. From the old grey logo, they have now moved to a light blue colour that was revealed at UFC 232 event. Designed by an Australian company, The Tokens Agency, the logo is based on a flat design that will be free to use without any restriction.
“As more people get exposed to it — and specifically the blue version we created for the UFC sponsorship — it has become apparent that the distinctiveness of the blue logo is well-liked,” said Robbie Coleman, a team member at The Token Agency.
“For us, the blue elicits the notion of ‘trust’, which the community on Reddit identified as important for Litecoin. It’s also the color of calm and serenity, and as such inspires a feeling of security and safety. Plus it pops as an icon in wallets and on exchanges!” added Coleman.
Just today itself, Huobi, one of the biggest crypto exchange launched Litecoin contracts on its Derivatives Market that means now people will be able to long or short this digital asset, as we reported yesterday.
“Litecoin is one of the biggest of the altcoins on the market today and we’ve seen quite a bit of demand for it by our users,” said Livio Weng, CEO of Huobi Global.
