One Litecoin Traveller’s Tweet Gained More Attention Than Any About Prince Charles’ GC2018 Arrival

People are visiting us here in Queensland from the far reaches of the planet to experience our exciting and innovative technology. And what happened during the 2018 Commonwealth Games is a testament to what people are really excited about.

TravelingCryptoKat, a Twitter user and Litecoin enthusiast from Washington, D.C., visited Brisbane in April, making a point to stop through Brisbane International Airport.

What she describes as “such a great experience to #PayWithLitecoin,” gained much more attention than she ever expected.

Within the afternoon, the tweet had caught the attention of Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, who retweeted it to his 761,000+ loyal followers.

CryptoKat’s tweet was sent during the celebration of the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast. Only a few days earlier, Prince Charles of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in the city for the Games to a lukewarm social media fanfare.
