CryptoCompare states that Litecoin is a cryptocurrency created in 2011 by a fork from Bitcoin. It has fast, low cost peer-to-peer transfers, a higher maximum supply of LTC (84 million), and other technical differences. It is based on an open-source, non-centralized blockchain. LTC is valuable because of its finite supply. It also reduces the amount entering the system regularly, which ensures that inflation is transparent. It can be used to pay for goods and services, and also as a test ground for new technology before it is implemented on the Bitcoin Network. LTC was developed by Charlie Lee, a former Google engineer. It is supported by the Litecoin Foundation.
