Litecoin (LTC) Price Chart

The real-time Litecoin price chart shown below presents the current value of Litecoin in U.S. dollars, constantly updating to reflect the most recent market trends and price fluctuations of LTC.


What is Litecoin (LTC)?

Litecoin (LTC) is a decentralized digital currency created in 2011 by former Google engineer Charlie Lee, who sought to build on Bitcoin's groundbreaking model with a faster and more affordable alternative. Often described as "silver to bitcoin's gold," Litecoin was designed for more lightweight peer-to-peer transactions with improved efficiency.

It processes blockchain transactions much quicker than Bitcoin and has a higher token supply - resulting in lower fees that make micro-transactions more feasible. Litecoin also uses a different proof-of-work algorithm, Scrypt, than Bitcoin's SHA-256. While Litecoin has not surpassed Bitcoin, it has endured with a loyal community supporting its development after over a decade. Critics initially dismissed LTC as just a Bitcoin clone, but substantiated network effects and liquidity reinforce its staying power.

How is the LTC price calculated?

YouHodler derives its aggregated Litecoin price data by compiling real-time data across high-liquidity cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance, OKEx, KuCoin, and Kraken. By gathering up-to-date LTC rate information from more than one trading platform, our algorithms can arrive at a precise weighted average that reflects wider market valuation and demand. This allows us to deliver reliable LTC/USD conversions, avoiding skews that could result from relying solely on a single exchange.
