The Flappening is defined as the transition of Litecoin growing bigger, more important, and more valuable than Bitcoin Cash (not Bitcoin).


The Flappening is a word created by Litecoin’s founder, Charlie Lee, in a tweet on the 25th of February, 2018.

For years, Litecoin has been associated with chickens. Why? Most people think when Litecoin was experiencing its first big price spikes, people in a chat group were getting feverishly excited. One of the random things said was “arise chicken” a line from a TV show called Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

What we do know is that Charlie Lee has an affection for chickens and mentions them frequently in his Twitter. Using the slang word “Flippening” (when another crypto overtakes bitcoin) he changed it to “Flappening”.
