About Litecoin

Litecoin is a cryptocurrency that uses a faster payment confirmation schedule and a different cryptographic algorithm than Bitcoin.

What is Litecoin?

Like Bitcoin, Litecoin exists as a blockchain where participating nodes process transactions, and miners provide security and verification for each of those transactions.

Litecoin was originally conceived and developed by Charlie Lee in 2011. Since its launch in 2011 Litecoin has seen steady adoption with an active community of traders, merchants, and developers.
