BTC China (CEO Bobby Lee) recently announced support of Litecoin trading with an attractive 0% commision charge. This has eagerly been anticipated due to Lee being the the elder brother of litecoin inventor, Charles Lee. (Explains the banner design!).
Currently financial institutions in China have been banned from bitcoin business by Chinese regulators which may give attraction to LTC.
The news of LTC listing helped boost the LTC/USD value from its early 2014 lows of 10-12USD up to highs of 21USD. This has now stabilized at the 16USD mark- something not seen since mid February/ late December.
