Charlie Lee himself on Feb 4th has called Litecoincash a scam. The website is a 1 pager with some eye candy but with everything declared as still “incoming” which does smell fishy. Luring people in by promising them 10x of their coin holdings does sound nice afterall, and people on their Telegram chat do dream about it, but is the project real?
Going to https://github.com/litecoincash-project/, one can spot only two contributions;
- litecoincash-project/bs58check Jan 30
A straight forward implementation of base58check extending upon bs58. This project is licensed by MIT and has not been touched within the last 2months.
- litecoincash-project/vanitygen Jan 26
Advertised as “The venerable vanitygen, forked to produce pretty Litecoin Cash addresses http://litecoinca.sh”, still the branch itself is 6-7years old, with only 1 file being 15days recent “vanitygen/pattern.c”. The only thing which has been changed within this file is 1 line (line 1390);
Original line: "const char *ats = "bitcoin", *bw = "\"1\"";" --- Modified line: "const char *ats = "Litecoin Cash", *bw = "\"C\"";"
So taking into consideration that the code over github is close to nothing and all wallets are still under construction, we can assume that development has really not even started. The site code itself has been downloaded from BitcoinCash repository and modified to read Litecoincash, as stated at the very end of litecoinca.sh too.
