About Litecoin

Litecoin (LTC) is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that enables near instant and low cost money transfers. Creation and transfer of LTC is decentralised and is based on an open-source cryptographic protocol. The Litecoin blockchain started as a hard-fork of the Bitcoin block in October 2011. Due to this, the Litecoin protocol is nearly identical to Bitcoin protocol.

They key differences between Litcoin and Bitcoin are as follows:

  • Blocktime in Litcoin blockchain is ~2.5mins vs. ~10mins for Bitcoin.
  • The supply of Bitcoin is capped at 21 million, whereas the max supply of Litcoins is 84 million.
  • Litecoin uses scrypt as the hashing algorithm, while SHA-256 is used in Bitcoin blockchain. This choice of hashing algorithm makes is easy to mine LTC using any consumer-grade hardware.

You can margin trade LTC on Delta Exchange using our derivative (i.e. futures and perpetual) contracts. This means that you can go long or short LTC with leverage.
