  • The Litecoin Foundation has announced a new partnership with BitGo for custody solutions.
  • BitGo offers a multi-signature feature for additional security.

The Litecoin Foundation, a non-profit foundation supporting LTC, has announced a new partnership with BitGo to provide the organization with digital asset storage and custody solutions. 

According to the official update made Jan. 3, the Litecoin Foundation is utilizing BitGo’s multi-signature wallet for its cryptocurrency custodial needs. While neither company has yet to supply details on the partnership, the Litecoin Foundation published to Twitter a post announcing the venture. 

BitGo is one of the longest-running cryptocurrency companies, first founded in 2013 as a bitcoin wallet provider. In 2018 the company expanded its service to a multi-signature wallet which now supports over 200 crypto-assets. 

The multi-signature feature uses multiple signature encryptions to validate a transaction, which enables private keys to be spread to more than one individual. 

Ben Chan, chief technology officer of BitGo, told Finance Magnates, 

BitGo is the first multi-signature wallet platform that provides support for such a wide offering of highly traded digital currencies.

He continued, 

Institutional investors and exchanges appreciate the scalability and security that our single, unified API provides.
