Litecoin appears to be one of the best alternatives to Bitcoin. It was created to manage some of the flaws in the original Bitcoin protocol. In fact, Litecoin is one of the very first altcoins in existence after Bitcoin. The value of this coin is derived from the user adoption. There is also a difference in leadership for the firms, as well. The creator of Litecoin, ex-Google employee, Charlie Lee is entirely transparent about what is he doing with the currency on social media, which is a great thing. The current market capacity of Litecoin is $10,462,371,395 and a volume of $618,492,000.
