Appeared on October 13, 2011, which makes it one of the oldest crypto currency.
The Litecoin project was conceived and created by Charles Lee as an alternative to Bitcoin, whose code was taken as a basis, with several notable changes and improvements, such as reducing block generation time, using different hashing algorithms, and reducing the time required for processing payments.
Charlie Lee created a lightcoin while working for Google. At Google, Charlie has worked on several well-known projects, such as Google Play, Chrome OS and YouTube. Lee left Google in 2013 to engage in full-time Coinbase. Now Coinbase is one of the largest cryptographic instruments in the world. However, Charlie has already left her and completely devoted himself to lightcoin.
