Wirex not supporting Litecoin Segwit addresses

Hello team,

A few years have passed since the implementation of “Segwit” on Litecoin blockchain.
I’m wondering why is Wirex not accepting Litecoin addresses starting with “ltc…” which are the “Segwit” Litecoin addresses??



Hello Carlos, thank you for taking the time writing to us.

Litecoin has updated the prefixes of their P2SH addresses that begin with a ‘3’ to addresses that begin with an ‘M.’ This change was made to stop confusion between BTC and LTC’s P2SH addresses, which used to be able to have the same ‘3’ prefix. This does not affect all LTC addresses, as the ‘L’ prefix LTC legacy addresses (non-SegWit) stay the same.

Best Regards!
