TapJets or the personal jet service in a blog post has let known that it is going to continue with the plans to make Ripple and Litecoin as payment options available. Despite the CEO Eugene Kesselman saluted the Verge crypto-enthusiasts, it is not the time for the 29th largest coin.
Litecoin Under most Loved Cryptos
TapJets targets to:
“leverage technology and disrupt/innovate the way people book private jet travel.” With this in mind it was “the first company to offer instant booking with Bitcoin”
Following up the Ethereum [ETH] listing as an option to pay the jet hire, the firm turned to twitter and approach the community directly for which altcoin should be next.
Our #cryptocurrency friends asked for their project to be included in our payment methods. Our CEO @EugeneKesselman promised a quick poll from the product team so here it is #XVG vs #XRP vs #LTC what should be our next move #FLYTAPJETS

Out of all the options, Verge third, Litecoin second and Ripple first – turned out as the clear winners. The team now will be proceeding with the technical evaluations of XRP and the Silver Coin. The results of exchange transaction testing are awaited to returned by the end of May.
As commented by Kesselman, it is looking like the LTC team are more speedy to responding to the particular opportunity:
“We have been in contact with LTC team already and will be reaching out to XRP team on Monday.”

With LTC/USD trading in the green today, it completes what can be described as a perfect week for Litecoin. The digital asset would be getting another very important listing from the well-known Gemini exchange.
Earlier this week, Zcash [ZEC] made it into the platform and right now it is 45.26% up in the last 7 days. Despite that there is no information when Litecoin is going to get the green card and start changing hands, a massive trading with positive return could be awaiting.
