Litecoin (LTC or Ł) is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open-source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Creation and transfer of coins is based on an open source cryptographic protocol and is not managed by any central authority.
Litecoin was released via an open-source client on GitHub on October 7, 2011 by Charlie Lee, a Google employee and former Engineering Director at Coinbase.
The Litecoin network went live on October 13, 2011. It was a fork of the Bitcoin Core client, differing primarily by having a decreased block generation time (2.5 minutes), increased maximum number of coins, different hashing algorithm (script, instead of SHA-256), and a slightly modified GUI.
You can use the Litecoin Price Chart to compare the Litecoin price against other currencies. You can also view the Litecoin price under various chart types: Line, Candle (Candlestick), and OHLC (Open High Low Close). Lastly, you can export and save the chart as a PNG file.
