Litecoin vs Bitcoin

Litecoin differs from Bitcoin in three ways.

  1. The Litecoin Network aims to process a block every 2.5 minutes, rather than Bitcoin’s 10 minutes. Litecoin, therefore, allows for faster transaction confirmation.
  2. Litecoin uses Scrypt in its proof-of-work algorithm. That is a sequential memory-hard function requiring asymptotically more memory than an algorithm which is not memory-hard.
  3. The Litecoin Network will produce 84 million Litecoins That is four times as many currency units as will be issued by the Bitcoin Network.
