Litecoin (LTC) was created by Charlie Lee on Bitcoin’s protocol. It is one of the major peer–to–peer cryptocurrencies. It differentiates itself from others as it uses a hashing algorithm. Unlike 10 minute processing time of Bitcoin, Litecoin (LTC) uses mere 2.5 minutes for processing one transaction. It also uses scrypt in its proof-of-work algorithm. This algorithm is known as a sequential memory-hard function as it requires more memory as compared to other conventional algorithms.
