How to deposit and withdraw Litecoin

This works through a so-called Multigateway approach: Litecoin is sent to a user's personal deposit address available in the Lite Client and after the deposit, the user receives an Litecoin token (wLTC) on the Waves blockchain. Every single Litecoins is backed 1:1 with a real Litecoin.
