Litecoin founder proposes 1% mining tax
Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin, suggested that miners should donate to finance the cryptocurrency development project.
“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!” Lee said.
Unlike Bitcoin Cash, LTC miners can freely decide where to pay the tax, such as Litecoin.com or the Lite school. However, in the case of BCH, a Hong Kong corporation will collect the funds to legally distribute them.
