📝 Project Overview 📝

Litecoin is a fork of Bitcoin’s core client, with a few slighty altered attributes. The project began in 2011, launched by former Google employee Charlie Lee.

Litecoin is a Proof-of-Work coin. Litecoin offers faster results with shorter block times, which take roughly two and a half minutes (compared to Bitcoin’s 10).

The project does this through its mining algorithm referred to as Scrypt.

Because of the algorithm, block times and mining difficulty, Litecoin has a max throughput of 56 transations per second. This is considerably more than Bitcoin’s 7.

⚙️ Technology ⚙️

Litecoin is a particularly Strong adopted of Atomic Swaps. With Atomic Swaps, users can instantly perform cross-chain transactions.

A little over two years ago, Decred and Litecoin were the two projects that completed the first ever cross-chain atomic swap.

Litecoin is also a really strong adopter of SegWit. SegWit usage on Litecoin is currently at 75% and has increased since last year.

Litecoin devs have been exploring ways to make it Fungible – so similar to the likes of Monero and other privacy coins.

One of Litecoin Improvement Proposals (or L.I.Ps) presented a few months ago was the implementation of the mimblewimble protocol. This is a pretty advanced protocol that can obfuscate transactions and make them private.

👨‍💻️ Team, Partners & Development 👨‍💻

The Litecoin Foundation is a non-profit registered in Singapore that has a number of aims. Prime amoung these is to drive the adoption of Litecoin across the world.

The foundation also works with a wide variety of payment gateways. This includes companies like Coinpayments, Coingate, Travala and so on.

There are merchants across the globe that accept Litecoin as a form of payment, with most existing in Europe and the United States. However, there are also quite a few in parts of Asia as well, including Indonesia and India.

🔗 Network Stats 🔗

Transactions have dipped a bit since the halving in August, they are still in line with what the network was seeing throughout 2019, which would suggest the Litecoin blockchain is still fairly healthy.

Unique addresses had a large spike in August at the time of the halving, Litecoin is showing a bit of a dropoff in these.

Overall, on-chain data suggests that the Litecoin blockchain is relatively healthy. There has been an increase in large transactions, plus a slight uptick in the number of users who have held a significant amount of LTC for more than a year.

📈 Trading & Liquidity 📈

Litecoin is in a fortunate position when it comes to market liquidity and exchange support. Given that it was one of the first few altcoins on the market, it has constantly been a staple cryptocurrency on exchange order books.

As a result, Litecoin does over $2 billion dollars a day in trading volume. If we were to compare this to other cryptocurrencies, it is the 4th most traded crypto on the market.

Crypto Colax says:

Hey guy, GitHub commits for LTC seem to have come to a standstill since April 2020. What's your take on this?

Ron says:

Don't forget it is not needed yet as a medium of exchange but that will change as the banks fail. I do think lite coin is the right coin. A very good and fair evaluation of the coin thanks.

Currency Nomad says:

Just added Litecoin to my portfolio – making a in-depth Technical Analysis video on LTC today =)

Ramon Larson says:

Definitely been keeping an eye on ltc recently

Last Man Standing says:

Coins that I'm sure will be around in 50 years: BTC, ETH, XMR and LTC
For the rest of them… I can never be 100% sure…
Not saying that I don't hold any other shitcoins and that you can't make profit (more BTC) with them…

charles prinold says:

Boss Vladtrick says:

That's why I'm gonna buy
Oh yeah 🤘🚀


When litecoin moves it moves violently. Buy low sell high 🚀🚀

2fer one says:

Litecoin is one of oldest and most reliable cryptos and a direct beneficiary of proven bitcoin development while maintaining it's own mining algorithm unlike bch and bsv. Because of these reasons and more litecoin is an excellent value IMO.

Lockbert says:

“Let’s get Kraken”

prazertv says:

All that Litecoin has to do is rebrand to BitcoinLite and they will double their market cap.
