Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
Digital currencies are very high risk. Do not invest money you can’t afford to lose. Please consider the suitability of crypto for your individual position before trading.
About Litecoin (LTC)
Litecoin is one of the oldest cryptocurrencies and was launched in October 2011.
Bitcoin's wildly successful debut in 2009 - with open-source code and breakthrough blockchain technology - inspired the creation of many projects. Litecoin sparked into life with a strong focus on speed, performance, and scalability.
Litecoin or LTC is often referred to as the silver to Bitcoin’s gold and is one of the first "alternative" cryptocurrencies, aka Altcoins.
The project has retained its ambitious and forward-looking aspirations, adopting new features such as Segregated Witness much earlier than Bitcoin and its more conservative approach.
