Lightning Network is also in the works, suggesting innovation could migrate to litecoin should it activate the change. Bitcoin Core developer Johnson Lau said that, should SegWit activate on litecoin, he will shift some of his efforts there to work on mast, a project that could expand the cryptocurrency's smart contract capabilities. The litecoin network appears to be on the cusp of enacting a technical upgrade that would boost the capacity of its network. This has prompted some further discussion about whether the ability of miners to veto code changes is good or bad for public blockchains. While erroneous rumors of SegWit having already deployed are surfacing on social media, opinions are converging on both the future and likely price increase of Litecoin once the technology is released. The market has been reacting as its inched toward that mark. One minute the community thinks SegWit is about to activate, the next it doesn't seem so clear. The way forward, however, may not be easy. He also said he believes other large pools were unlikely to make the jump.

Some litecoin users have been calling for a user-activated soft fork, where the cryptocurrency's so-called economy paves the way for an upgrade, rather than mining pools. Others argue it could be a way for litecoin to become a novel network, one with a distinct value proposition in its own right. Seeing all these other altcoins pump is definitely disheartening. This week, when support crossed 75, many users speculated that the change would activate, but, a couple of mining pools multiplied their hashpower, bringing down support for the period to roughly. By contrast, prior to the SegWit episode beginning, Litecoin had traded at under 4 for an extended period. In January, litecoin released a new version featuring code for SegWit and an activation threshold of 75 of miner signaling (rather than the 95 required for activation on the bitcoin network).
