About Lithe™

Lithe™ aims to study the best practices of the fiat world and work towards developing products to be user-friendly for the people. So even though people are using the Lithe™ crypto on the backend, they will have no problems interacting with it because of its elegant UI. Lithe™ is built upon the TurtleCoin network which has features such as Light Blocks, Private Transactions and Blockchain Analysis Resistance. Lithe™ has a maximum supply of 25 billion coins allowing enough coins constantly flowing within the network but not too many that you would have to use more coins than expected to purchase goods. We know of one minor problem between cryptocurrency and normal people and that is it is like Voodoo to them. Lithe™ will change that so it will allow anyone and everyone the ability to use and benefit from it.

What is a Testnet?

A testnet is an alternative blockchain network for a project, that allows testing of experimental features. Testnet coins are separate and distinct from actual coins, and are never supposed to have any value.

Why a Testnet though?

Even though we have great confidence in our project and the code in which it is built upon, we do not know how it will react to the new code that has been placed within the blockchain codebase so initiating a testnet before launch seems like the sensible thing to do. This will also help use learn about bugs that may possibly be and then conquer them over time.

How long will the Testnet last?

There is no timeframe on how long the Lithe™ testnet will go on for. We will post information on social media every time something drastic is done for and within the network.

Right, I’m intrigued… How do I join in?

The first and best thing to do is join the Discord server that holds multiple members of our community, this is a great way to catch all the latest news and interact with the team and other members of the community. If you cannot join the Discord server then Twitter will be the next best place for contact.
Using this GitHub link will direct you to The Lithe Project’s wiki page where you can find out how to build Lithe™ on a Linux, Windows, MacOS and even Raspberry Pi: https://github.com/Lithe-Project/Lithe/wiki/Compile-Lithe
(NOTE: This section lacks information beyond this point because there are a few ways to do things. this will all be documented and we will fill in the gaps here but for now it is advised you join the Discord server. Link located at the bottom of this blog post.)

What can I do in the meantime?

Sit, mine and tell us how its going! That’s all! Relax yourself.


The Lithe Project™ Notice Section

Join the team

We will always be looking for new members to join and help work directly with the team and you don’t exactly have to be a C++ developer either. That’s right. Because Lithe is new it’s team, contributors and service operators are very limited.
(NOTE: Please use the Discord server and place your skill within the #Reach-Out channel so we can see and speak to you about bringing you onboard.)
