Litecoin LTC Cryptocurrency

Designation: LTC

Developed by: Charlie Lee, former Google employee

Public Release: October 7th, 2011

Market Cap: approximately $2.76 billion

This is an open-source, peer-to-peer digital currency that supports almost instant payments. Like other cryptocurrencies, it is not managed by some third-party or central authority.

The design of this currency closely resembles that of Bitcoin, and it is, in fact, a fork of BTC. However, it incorporates a number of enhancements. Litecoin mining is a lot more adaptive than Bitcoin’s since the Scrypt hashing method used by LTC is bound by CPU performance unlike SHA-256, which relies heavily on GPU performance. However, calculations become tougher with every 2016 blocks solved.

This system maintains stability across the board, yet fluctuations are a normal occurrence. It reached a market cap of $1 billion way back in 2013, and it has grown considerably since then.
