Litecoin MWEB is locked in on Testnet today

Today, the 75% of miners signaled for MWEB on Litecoin testnet.

Testnet provides a safe environment to test new features without the risk of loosing real money."

The testnet is an alternative the main Litecoin blockchain and is to be used for testing. Testnet coins are separate and distinct from actual real litecoins, and are never supposed to have any value. This allows application developers or litecoin testers to experiment, without having to use real bitcoins or worrying about breaking the main bitcoin chain.
