When Bitcoin first came, it was hailed. Mister Satoshi created something that took over the world and created a new market in itself. But as the technology advanced it was found that Bitcoin does have some problems that are stopping it to be accepted overall. One, it was not energy efficient. Two, the transaction speed was slow. Three, it had a huge transaction fee. In the early days, these problems were tackled by another crypto project known as Litecoin (LTC)
What is Litecoin (LTC)?
Litecoin was hailed as the lite version of Bitcoin. It offered faster speed and less transaction speed as compared to Bitcoin. This resulted in the fast adoption of the currency in the world and price continuously increased. LTC was released on October 7th, 2011. Litecoin’s block time is around 2.5 minutes and extremely low transaction fee which makes it eye catching. The network went live after 5 days. Just like PoW projects the supply s continuously increasing over the time. As of January 66.245M coins have been mined and the full supply be available around 2140.
