The Litecoin Foundation announced that it will migrate from the multi-sig Electrum-LTC wallet to BitGo’s multi-sig wallet. 

According to a May 7 post on the company’s website, the move is due to BitGo’s wallet providing “greater convenience and nearly the same level of security.” The old Electrum-LTC addresses will be available online for one month, with the new BitGo wallets addressed to be published soon.

The price of Litecoin (LTC) rose 5% following the announcement, but experienced a similar downturn as Bitcoin (BTC) during the halving dump on May 9.
