What Is Litecoin?


Litecoin came to be within the MIT/X11 licensing. These super-speedy coins are exchanged via open source protocol, and, much like Bitcoin, are totally decentralized. People claim that Litecoin is more advanced than its sibling coin, Bitcoin, due to some technological advancements and repairs it features. These include:

  • Using segregated witness to make coin transfer very fast

  • Use of lightning network

  • Minor cost of transacting


This increases the speed of transactions between more of them can happen simultaneously. This makes Litecoin a more practical and effective digital currency to be used across mercantile systems.  There are also many more Litecoins than there are Bitcoins. Today, there is much talk over a potential upcoming Bitcoin fork. It may be helpful to consider that Litecoin was itself a fork of Bitcoin.

History of Litecoin


Litecoin came to the public in 2011. Its protocol was offered open source, and it was created and distributed by Charlie Lee. Then, in 2013, an upgrade was done on Litecoin in order to protect its continuity and ensure its security.

Another version came out shortly thereafter. This version was less expensive to use. It was given out to people who were already using Litecoin and also to those using online forums.

In the fall of 2013, the worth of Litecoin grew tremendously. It is now worth about fifty USD. It is among the most popular cryptocurrencies and operating at incredible speed.

Finally, a 2014 upgrade was done, to further perfect the currency and adjust final problems.

How Litecoin Works


Litecoin is tailored after the Bitcoin blockchain, however, so far, its SegWit usage has been one of the defining distinction between the coins. SegWit allows for incredibly fast processing of transactions.
