Buy, sell and exchange Litecoin

StormGain allows you to buy, sell and exchange Litecoin using data from the live LTC price chart to inform your trades.

What is LTC?

LTC is the native cryptocurrency of the Litecoin network. It was intended to be a streamlined version of Bitcoin, sharing most of its features except for a few key differences. The first one is the way each network employs different cryptographic algorithms. Litecoin uses a newer script algorithm, whereas Bitcoin uses a more dated technology called the SHA-256 algorithm. Litecoin, being the newer and more advanced network of the two, has faster transaction processing time. The average transaction confirmation time for Bitcoin is around nine minutes per one transaction, while Litecoin takes about two and a half minutes per transaction. 

Litecoin price history

Litecoin was one of the first cryptocurrencies to debut after Bitcoin, with a release date of 7 October 2011. It was considered the "Silver to Bitcoin's Gold", which refers to the gold and silver assets in the forex market. LTC price history began at its launch when it started trading below $1. In three years, it grew to $4 before falling back down to $1. But in 2017, during the bull market, LTC set a new high at $383. Within a year, LTC's price dipped down to as low as $4 again but was revived in 2021 when it made another new all-time high at $412.98.  

Litecoin price prediction

As is commonly known in the crypto space, Litecoin's price action tends to correlate with Bitcoin's, much like Gold and Silver relates. However, this doesn't translate to an equal value between the assets. LTC's future price movements can be judged somewhat accurately depending on what is expected of Bitcoin's price.

The price of LTC today is affected by many things, but Bitcoin rules. This is mainly due to LTC being a lite version of Bitcoin, which some believe LTC is fundamentally the same as BTC in all but name and price.
