About Litecoin

Litecoin is one of the most popular Bitcoin alternatives when it comes to speed and minimal transaction costs. LTC has derived from Bitcoin in 2011 and was created by Charlie Lee. The main feature that differs LTC from BTC is decreased block generation time, a bigger max coin supply, and a radically improved hashing algorithm. This system can transfer funds 4 times faster than Bitcoin and with lower commissions.

The main thing that makes Litecoin special is the use of the Scrypt algorithm which is a lighter alternative to BItcoin's SHA-256. People who own LTC can store them in special wallets and exchange them for other cryptocurrency or fiat money just like they do with Bitcoin.
