Litecoin general information

General LTC facts, technical details and general information about Litecoin crypto currency


Litecoin is often referred to as “Bitcoin-Lite”, or “silver” to Bitcoin’s gold. It’s indeed a Bitcoin fork, but though they share the same blockchain, the differences between the two cryptocurrencies are many. Firstly, they rely on different algorithms, and because of a less complex one Litecoin mining is perceived as more accessible for everyday user. Secondly, though the transactions in both chains occur simultaneously, their confirmation time is different: it takes around 9 minutes for Bitcoin’s long-term average transaction to be confirmed vs. 2,5 minutes for a Litecoin one, and such speed gives Litecoin a competitive advantage. After the SegWit protocol implementation in April 2017, the price of Litecoin has grown steadily from $10 to more than $300 in December, making it one the fastest growing cryptocurrencies this year. Litecoin was also a beneficiary of the bitcoin rally – on certain days it enjoyed 20% or event 30% price increases. Thanks to its transaction speed Litecoin is positioned by its founder, Charlee Lee, as a cryptocurrency for everyday payments vs. bitcoin which is better as a long-term store of value.

LTC is always perched in an uncertain position. It may be because crypto enthusiasts are unsure if LTC has lasting power in the crypto market, but it either gets weak support or strong buying action. Lately it’s been enjoying strong buying action,...

Litcoin has been the best performer in the whole crypto market. It’s insane how much money you could have made by buying the bottom. You could literally already be over 3x from its bottom about 4 months ago. How can anyone that knows crypto not be...

I still don't understand how Litecoin is so high on the CMC rankings. LTC is just a smaller version of BTC, and BTC is already the best crypto out there. Why is it that LTC still holds so much value? It's a bit faster but as lightning network...
