Description

Litecoin (LTC) is one of the oldest cryptocurrencies on the market. It was created as a Bitcoin fork in 2011 by former Google engineer and rapidly gained popularity among cryptocurrency enthusiasts, miners, and traders. The new cryptocurrency differed from the original as it offered:

  • lower transaction fees;

  • 4x faster transaction confirmation time;

  • 4x larger maximum amount of coins available for mining;

  • different cryptography algorithm.

For a long time, Litecoin was referred to as silver to Bitcoin’s gold. It had a specific niche of a coin that was very similar to the TOP-1 cryptocurrency, but at the same time, it had its value for crypto market participants. LTC just like BTC was perceived as a trading asset rather than something that has practical value. At different points in time, it was rated among TOP-10 or TOP-5 cryptocurrencies by the market capitalization.

In 2017 Litecoin has started to grow in popularity as a currency for actual transactions, as a payment method. One of the reasons for that is its compatibility with the Bitcoin API, which means that the former can be integrated just alongside with the latter. Indeed, Litecoin is slightly more suitable for small transactions due to its features. Recently it got popular on Asian gaming platforms and marketplaces.
