    About Litecoin

    Litecoin was started as a fork of Bitcoin on October 13th, 2011. Charles Lee had noticed that Bitcoin was taking longer and longer to process transactions as more people were using it, so he forked the code from the original bitcoin project and changed a few things including making the time of new blocks half of what it originally was. By doing this they hoped to increase transaction speeds on the Litecoin network.

    How it works

    Litecoin is a cryptocurrency that focuses on being faster than bitcoin to transfer and process transactions. Litecoins are based on an open-source global payment network that is not controlled by any central authority, it's fully decentralized. It's aimed to be the silver to bitcoins gold, which means it will have less value but more daily use. Mining litecoins is a little different from other crypto coins because it uses a scrypt in its proof-of-work algorithm.
