The Litecoin cryptocurrency (LTC ticker) is one of the most famous forks (branches) of the Bitcoin, which is also called “** digital silver**”.

On October 13, 2011, the Litecoin network was successfully launched online for the first time. The developer of the LTC is a very famous person in the crypto world — Charlie Lee. Charlie Lee, being fond of modern digital technologies, dreamed of creating his own lightweight version of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, which would work much faster and require a lower commission fee.

It is known that Litecoin is the second fork of Bitcoin, built on the basis of the Blockchain code of its original. The proof of transactions in LTC is carried out due to the Scrypt algorithm, which, unlike SHA-256, requires less computing power to service the network, while not allowing ASIC chips to gain a significant advantage in the network. Verification of transactions on the Litecoin platform is performed by a reliable Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm, which requires large computing power to function.

LTC received its loud nickname “digital silver” for a more advanced Blockchain system than Bitcoin, which allows for almost instant transactions with a very low network commission. Here, one financial transaction is carried out 5 times faster than on the BTC platform (about 2.5 minutes), and a low commission fee makes it possible to make even microtransactions.

The Litecoin issue is also different from the original. In total, 84 million coins will be created in this system. At the time of writing, more than 61.47 million LTC have been mined.
