What is unique about Liti Capital? 

Liti Capital is revolutionizing the litigation finance market by merging it with blockchain technology. Before our project, the industry was monopolized by elite investors, hedge funds, and venture capitalists due to its financially steep barriers to entry.

This means that every time we win a case, if you own LITI, you will be compensated accordingly. Note that as the life cycle of a case can be lengthy, this process takes time.

Rather, their success is directly measured by the success of our company. As we operate in one of private equity’s most attractive alternative asset classes that is predicted to more than double by 2027, we are delighted to bring more secure, stable offerings to the blockchain.

About Blockchain Basics

What is a cryptocurrency? 

A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual asset that is decentralized, secured by cryptography, and all but impossible to double-spend. They are built on blockchain-based networks that are distributed across an extensive number of computers. The majority of cryptocurrencies are not issued by central authorities, making them difficult for governments to interfere with or manipulate.

What is a blockchain?

A blockchain is a digital, decentralized, public ledger that records every transaction that occurs on it. These “records” are called blocks. Blocks link to each other to form a chain through cryptographic algorithms. This data can’t be changed or deleted, making any fraud attempts instantly visible. Thanks to the use of public keys— or unique wallet addresses— identity can be verified on a blockchain, while still preserving anonymity.

What is a smart contract?

A smart contract is an instantaneous, self-executing contract between two or more parties that establish terms of agreement through code on a blockchain. On top of improving efficiency and transparency, smart contracts are trustless— meaning that crypto users do not need to trust an intermediary to supervise, verify, and execute transactions. Smart contracts decentralize the transaction process, and eliminate the need for a third-party or intermediary, like a bank. Smart contracts are irreversible, unmodifiable, and a crucial element of the Ethereum network.

What is staking?

Staking is the practice of locking up a portion of your holdings of a particular cryptocurrency to earn rewards or interest. Staking is common with cryptocurrencies that use the Proof-of-Stake model to process payments, which makes it possible to verify transactions without a third party, like a bank.

Staking usually requires locking up your staked assets for a certain period, making them non transferable until that period elapses. If you’re interested in staking wLITI, you can earn up to 9% APY without locking up your tokens.

What is KYC?

Know Your Customer (KYC) is an identification verification method that is used by some crypto platforms and exchanges to confirm that you are who you say you are. This often entails providing your full name, country of residence, birthday, residential address, either a driver’s license, national I.D., or passport, and your phone number.
