Lite It Up: 3 Litecoin Price Predictions For 2018 & Beyond

LitecoinOn October 13, 2011, the cryptocurrency known as Litecoin (LTC) burst on to the altcoin scene.

Founded by a former Google employee by the name of Charlie Lee, Litecoin is a hardfork of the Bitcoin Core client and has features similar to that of the original Bitcoin.

However, Litecoin also differs, in that it offers a decreased block generation time, which the developer’s claim makes for faster transaction confirmation. It also uses a scrypt in its proof-of-work algorithm, thus making it more expensive to both create and mine.

To learn more about Litecoin, and get resources on the project, check out our Litecoin Guide.

From a price standpoint, Litecoin reached its all-time high of roughly $371 (USD) in mid-December of 2017. At present time, one can expect to pay about $130 for a single Litecoin.
