Litecoin is a Cryptocurrency, the network powered by PoW (consensus mechanism based on mining) algorithm.

The official Litecoin website is https://litecoin.org.

Litecoin is a first alternative (to Bitcoin) peer-to-peer cryptocurrency, a "fork" of the Bitcoin (software, based on the original bitcoin source code with some modifications), created as a "more perfect alternative" to BTC. The main differences in software architecture were the decreased block generation time (2.5 minutes vs 10) and different hashing algorithm (scrypt instead of SHA-256). The network produces new blocks more often than Bitcoin, making transaction confirmation time significantly faster, hence the "Lite" in the name.

The software creator is a former employee of Google and ex-Director of Engineering at Coinbase, an active member of the Cryptocurrency community. Litecoin is playing an important role in Bitcoin and the whole cryptocurrency industry infrastructure, for example, the Lightning Network (a "Layer 2" payment protocol operating on top of the Bitcoin or another blockchain-based cryptocurrency) support, etc.

  • Litecoins are often called “silver coins” (although there is also a "Chickun" ) on the analogy of “golden” Bitcoin, litecoin's "big brother".
  • During the 2017 "bull run", Litecoin showed even bigger price growth, than the Bitcoin itself.
