I've created a crypto-currency wallet for Bitcoin using BitcoinJ. Now I want to add Litecoin in this wallet. How to implement BitcoinJ dependency for Litecoin? While using BitcoinJ for both Litecoin and Bitcoin, I was getting blockchain of Bitcoin for both the addresses. What should I do so that I can get Bicoin blockchain for Bitcoin address and Litecoin blockchain for Litecoin address?

here is dependency which is I used>>>

  implementation 'org.bitcoinj:bitcoinj-core:0.14.7'

here is my code for bitcoin blockchain download initialisation>>>

  public void initWallet() {
    ECKey key;
    String btcpri = 
    if (btcpri.length() == 51 || btcpri.length() == 52) {
        DumpedPrivateKey dumpedPrivateKey = 
        DumpedPrivateKey.fromBase58(params, btcpri);
        key = dumpedPrivateKey.getKey();
    } else {
        BigInteger privKey = Base58.decodeToBigInteger(btcpri);
        key = ECKey.fromPrivate(privKey);
    Log.e("key ", String.valueOf(key));

    kit = new WalletAppKit(params, file, "btc_justbitcoin") {
        protected void onSetupCompleted() {
            Log.e("Address ", 
  • Can you show the definition of params variable? You will need to make a Litecoin version of the params so it has all of the Litecoin parameters. Then create another WalletAppKit using those new params.

  • See github.com/litecoin-project/litecoinj/blob/master/src/main/java/… for an example.

  • I was trying to use this dependancy but it didn't implement in my project implementation 'org.bitcoinj:bitcoinj-core:0.13-alice-SNAPSHOT'
