Today, Litecoin is the #5 cryptocurrency by market cap, valued collectively at just over $3 billion. Adding LTC support to SFOX is the latest step in our ongoing mission to provide liquidity and open access to the rapidly maturing market of crypto assets.
Litecoin started out as a “clone” of Bitcoin in 2011: it shared almost all of its code, with just a few key differences that aimed to make it a better medium for day-to-day commerce in the digital age.
Where does Litecoin diverge from Bitcoin?
- It has new blocks four times as often, meaning it has shorter confirmation times.
- It will ultimately have four times as many coins, meaning it’s proportionately cheaper than Bitcoin.
- Its hashing algorithm is memory-based rather than CPU-based, making it easier for the average person to mine.
In many ways, Litecoin is targeting the same niche as Bitcoin Cash: it aims to be the digital cash to complement Bitcoin’s function as a store of value. One of the most critical factors to the success of a digital cash is mass adoption, and we intend to help facilitate this adoption through our integration of LTC across multiple orderbooks.
