Litecoin General Information

General LTC facts, technical details and Litecoin Cryptocurrency information

Cryptocurrency, created by former employee of Google Charles Li, is already accepted by companies in the field of electronics, clothing, games and advertising. The main characteristic of the Litecoin network is its ability to process a higher transaction volume compared to its counterpart, bitcoin. Another advantage is a large pool of coins: it is planned that in the course of history about 84 million litecoins will be created, which is four times the number of coins in bitcoin blockchain. Theoretically, this should allow Litecoin not to turn into an overly accessible currency, which could lead to its devaluation, but also protect it from becoming too complex to generate, and therefore potentially too expensive. How this strategy will work in the long term, we still have to see, but the current price of around $ 50 per coin indicates good prospects for the 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. 

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin is an open source, global payment network that is fully decentralized without any central authorities. Mathematics secures the network and empowers individuals to control their own finances. Litecoin features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency than the leading math-based currency. With substantial industry support, trade volume and liquidity, Litecoin is a proven medium of commerce complementary to Bitcoin.
