What is Litecoin?

Much like Bitcoin, Litecoin (LTC) is a decentralised peer-to-peer cryptocurrency powered by the blockchain network. Litecoin is characterised by faster and cheaper transactions. The coin was created by a Google employee, Charles Lee. In May 2018 the first Lightning Network transaction was completed through Litecoin, transferring 0.00000001 LTC from Zurich to San Francisco in under one second.
