What is Litecoin?

A “lite” version of Bitcoin that is faster and cheaper by design.

The main difference between Litecoin and Bitcoin is that a new Litecoin block is created much faster than Bitcoin. However, the block size of Litecoin is bigger than Bitcoin, which might cause orphaned blocks to occur easier.
