What is Litecoin

Litecoin was created in October 2011 by former Google engineer Charlie Lee as a 'lite' version of Bitcoin.

Similar to Bitcoin, Litecoin is a peer-to-peer decentralised digital currency. However, it was designed specifically for cheaper and faster everyday transactions. It's often described as the 'silver' to Bitcoin's 'gold'.

There are 84 million Litecoins in total and its token ticker is LTC.

Cryptoassets are currently unregulated by the FCA, so you are unable to access the Financial Services Compensation Scheme or the Financial Ombudsman Service.
