Litecoin is a cryptocurrency created by Charlie Lee which is based on the Bitcoin protocol but differs in hashing algorithm used. It is said to be more decentralized since large mining conglomerates can't easily switch over to Litecoin. The main difference is that Litecoin generates blocks in 2.5 minutes compared to Bitcoin's 10 minutes. Litecoin also has larger blocks, more coins in circulation and lower risk of double spending. Its Scrypt hashing algorithm has inspired many other popular altcoins such as Dogecoin.
