LTC, often called “silver to Bitcoin’s gold,” is one of the early and well-established cryptocurrencies. Created by Charlie Lee, a former Google engineer, LTC aims to offer faster transaction confirmation times and a different hashing algorithm compared to Bitcoin.
It shares many similarities with Bitcoin, including its limited supply and the ability to serve as a digital store of value. LTC has gained recognition for its active development community, widespread adoption, and focus on transaction speed and efficiency.
