  • From Crypto__Warrior:

    Or this: $DGB transactions are confirmed in approx. 15 seconds, which is 40 times faster than #Bitcoin and 10 times faster than #Litecoin. SegWit enables up to 1066 on-chain transactions per second and negligible fees make #DigiByte the ideal currency for daily payments.

  • From Mattsolid87:

    No pain no gain
    #Litecoin hodlers watch every other coin pump around them and wonder when it’s their turn. One thing I’ve learned since the 2017 run, LTC is not a follower. It’s a leader. It only wants people who believe in it to gain the reward in the end. Transactions don’t lie
