Transparency & Impact

Lite.Space is committed to transparency and impact. Here are some key points:

  • Funds Distribution: We distribute funds from the general fund quarterly, prioritizing impactful Litecoin projects. Donors can recommend specific projects for funding, and while we consider these recommendations, the final decision rests with Lite.Space.
  • 100% Support: Every donation to the general fund and specific open-source projects goes directly to grant recipients.
  • Grants in Litecoin: Grants are provided in Litecoin, ensuring seamless support for Litecoin-related endeavors.
  • Secure Donations: We employ BTCPay Server and Electrum-LTC for on-chain Litecoin donations, with all contributions securely stored in a multi-sig wallet overseen by our council.
  • Tax Deductions: While we work on offering tax deductions for American Citizens, we currently do not provide this feature. For significant donations, U.S. citizens can reach out to support@Lite.Space.

Join us in revolutionizing Litecoin's future! Lite.Space is built on transparency, community-driven governance, and the unwavering support of Litecoin enthusiasts like you. Together, we'll light up the world of Litecoin development and adoption.

Stay tuned for funding opportunities, governance updates, and more! Let's make Litecoin shine brighter than ever before.

The Journey to Lite.Space: A Community-Driven Evolution

The inception of Lite.Space didn't happen overnight. It's the result of a journey that began with the Litecoin community's support and the dedication of key individuals. Building on this momentum, our journey culminated in the creation of Lite.Space. This platform represents a collective effort, a testament to the power of open-source collaboration, and the vision to empower Litecoin's development.

Bounties and Community Support

Bounty - Port Ordinals Lite: The journey commenced with a tweet in January that read, "5 $LTC to whoever ports this to #Litecoin #Bitcoin #Ordinals." The community swiftly rallied behind this bounty, with dedicated individuals like indigo_nakamoto, ryanwrights, MASTERBTCLTC, ChiefLitecoin, and finitemaz collectively contributing 22 LTC to transform it into a reality.

In February, thanks to the expertise of anthonyonchain, the Mimblewimble white paper was etched onto the Litecoin Blockchain as the very first Ordinals Lite inscription on February 17, 2023.

Bounty - Port Mempool.Space: The journey continued as we set our sights on porting Mempool.Space to Litecoin. The community came together once again, with generous contributions from indigo_nakamoto, lukewrightmain, johnez_ltc, anml_litecoin, nakamoto_std, FreezeMatthew, SadFrogLTC, CLINTWESTWOOD, DaddyCool1991, ROWEBOT3339, and TheLucifers_Son, raising a substantial bounty of 17.5 LTC.

Bounty - Port Unisat: The journey took another turn as we set our sights on Unisat, raising 18 LTC for the cause. Thanks to contributors like indigo_nakamoto, lukewrightmain, MASTERBTCLTC, and johnez_ltc, anthonyonchain once again played a pivotal role in completing this bounty.

Bounty - Port OpenOrdEx: We ventured into the world of OpenOrdEx, a zero-fee trustless Bitcoin NFT marketplace, and with contributions from indigo_nakamoto and lukewrightmain, totaling 7.5 LTC. This support allowed us to complete the fourth bounty with the help of jamesscaur.

The Birth of Lite.Space

LTCUnderground suggested the idea of establishing a non-profit organization, and Justin Ehrenhofer from Magic Grants offered valuable guidance. The vision expanded to porting and the concept of Lite.Space began to take shape.


The Litecoin Foundation has made this possible by the dedication and support of some incredible individuals and organizations. It all started when Justin and Grant shared their inspiring ideas, opening the door to this exciting initiative. Even though Justin and Grant are not directly part of Lite.Space, their contributions have been instrumental in shaping its vision.

Our journey is only complete with the invaluable support of the Litecoin community, the talented developers who completed the bounties, and the unwavering guidance of the Litecoin Foundation Council. Together, we've transformed ideas into action, leading to the creation of Lite.Space.
