Litecoin Founder Charlie Lee Proposes Mining Pool Donations For Cryptocurrency Development
January 27, 2020

Litecoin founder Charlie Lee proposes for mining pool donations as a new funding method for cryptocurrency development.  

“How about Litecoin pools donate 1% (0.125 LTC) of block rewards to the @LTCFoundation? If every miner/pool does this, it amounts to about $1.5MM donation per year!”

With 1% donated on a consistent basis, Lee’s suggested solution would provide enough funding for Litecoin permanently going forward.

He explained:

“At current LTC price, 1% of block rewards is about 7x Litecoin Foundation’s yearly expenses. Even if a small percent of miners are generous enough to donate, the foundation would be able to put it to good use by funding developers to work on Litecoin Core, Mimble Wimble, LiteWallet, LN wallet, hosting the yearly Litecoin Summit, and pushing for adoption of Litecoin by merchants and users.”

Lee also confirmed such donations are voluntary, adding, “It wouldn’t be right if it wasn’t voluntary.” 

Garnering enough capital to run and operate a business can be difficult. The situation becomes more complicated when the business or project aims for decentralization.

Lee’s 1% voluntary donation proposal comes after Bitcoin Cash (BCH) proponents Roger Ver and Jihan Wu suggested an “infrastructure funding plan,” requiring miners to pay 12.5% of block rewards to an operation in Hong Kong.

New concepts

In response to 51% attack concerns, Dogecoin merged its mining with Litecoin in 2014, enabling simultaneous mining of the two assets. Notably, this joint Litecoin and Dogecoin mining impacts Lee’s new mining pool donation concept. 

“It’s important that miners can choose to support other Litecoin organizations as well, Miners should donate to the organizations that want to help out.”
