Litecoin (LTC) To Introduce Lower Transaction Fees

Announced via their Medium post, the upcoming release of Litecoin Core 0.17 is set to lower network fees by a factor of 10.  Currently, the average transaction fee is Ł0.001 per KB or approximately $0.05. With the upcoming reduction, we can expect to see Ł0.0001 per KB or approx. $0.005. The last time we saw numbers this low was in 2015. One of the reasons for this move comes in the wake of the 2017 bull run of LTC, when tx fees regularly reached up to $0.10 on average per transaction and peaks at just over a dollar.
