Time to shine for LTC has come, be ready for more in the future Smiley
strong hand will get more!
Heard from someone talking about this it reached 30% higher in the last couple of days?

So this looks to be true.
Why all the buzz now?
It seems to be taking away from the Ethereum hype now. Cheesy

I think it will go higher. Look at trade volume.

And wasn't it said they are offering segwit to it?
The last time I looked into it the voting were at 75% so once it reached this level they would activate it regardless.

If Charlie is able to implement all the new stuff that all the folks in the Bitcoin camp are fighting over would not there be a huge vacuum sucking all the BTC $ to LiteCoin?

He recently left CoinBase to focus more on LTC so would not that be the direction effort?

Charlie - make it happen and help the Bit-coiners find a new home!

Hi, I've heard that some lightning network would be activated on Litecoin in some days.

Is that true?

LAUNCHED

Download the binaries from: http://litecoin.org
Check out the source: https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin
Wiki: http://litecoin.info
Forum: http://forum.litecoin.net/



Litecoin is the result of some of us who joined together on IRC in an effort to create a real alternative currency similar to Bitcoin.  We wanted to make a coin that is silver to Bitcoin's gold.  Various alternative currencies have come and gone.  Some brought innovation, but they all had problems.

  • ixcoin - Nasakioto premined 580k coins. Seemed like a pump and dump. Competed with Bitcoin for GPU resources - Dead (~2 gh/s)
  • i0coin - Basically ixcoin without the premine. Not much support was given to this coin after it was released. - Dead (~5 gh/s)
  • SolidCoin - Innovative quick transaction times. Appears to have been run aground by CoinHunter, its creator, due to insecure changes and immature forum presence. - Dead, shutdown by CoinHunter
  • GeistGeld - Lolcust premined 7.7 million coins.  15 second block time is probably a bit extreme. - Alive, but limping (~15 gh/s)
  • Tenebrix - Lolcust premined 7.7 million coins.  CPU proof of work using scrypt is very innovative.  Price doing fairly well on btc-e.com. - Alive (~0.003 gh/s)
  • Fairbrix - Basically Tenebrix without the premine.  First launch was crippled due to bad config.  Relaunch attacked initially - Doing OK now, but no exchange so far. - Alive, but limping (~0.0001 gh/s)

We wanted the best innovations of Bitcoin and these other currencies to create a coin with all of their benefits, but nearly none of their problems.

Proof of Work

We really liked Tenebrix's Scrypt proof of work.  Using Scrypt allows one to mine Litecoin while also mining Bitcoin.  We humbly offer a big thanks to ArtForz for the implementation.

Premines

Litecoin will come with 150 premined coins: just the genesis block and the first 2 blocks to confirm the genesis is valid.  We believe a coin needs to be released in a fair manner.  Having one person (or a group) control a large amount of coins that can be used as they see fit is against the decentralized vision of Bitcoin.  Yes, it is true that without a stash of premined coins, we will not be able to afford to pay for bounties, but we believe people will see the virtue of this coin, invest in it as early adopters, and will be willing to spend time creating services to make this coin better.

Fast transactions

We were impressed by the convenience of SolidCoin's fast transactions.  Although we know that fast confirmations are not necessarily as secure as Bitcoin's slower confirmations, they are very convenient for small merchants who don't need transactions to be super secure. The average Litecoin block takes 2.5 minutes, one quarter of Bitcoin's 10 minutes.  So if merchants wanted to be as safe as Bitcoin, they can wait for 4 times the number of Litecoin confirmations as compared to Bitcoin. But most merchants can readily accept 1-confirmed transactions for small amounts of litecoins.

Difficulty retarget

We will keep the retarget block the same as Bitcoin's 2016, but because blocks are found 4 times faster, difficulty will retarget about every 3.5 days.  The combination of fast retarget times and Scrypt proof of work (Litecoin will not compete with Bitcoin for miners) means we expect to not see the sort of problem Namecoin encountered; hashing power that leaves more suddenly than it came, causing a high difficulty slog for everyone who stayed.

Coin generation

Miners will generate 50 coins per block.  In light of our faster blocks, to properly mimic Bitcoin's generation trajectory, we needed to change the blocks at which coin generation is halved.  Bitcoin generation is halved every 210,000 blocks.  Litecoin generation will be halved every 840,000 blocks.  For those of you doing the math, Litecoin is scheduled to produce roughly 4 times as many coins as Bitcoin, about 84 million litecoins.

Fairness

We have come up with a plan that we believe is most fair.  Some previous coins were released without Windows binaries or without source code; we consider this as unfair as it is unsafe.

We released the source code and binaries ahead of time... 3 days before launch.  People had time to compile the source and run the client on their machines against the Litecoin testnet.  So people were able to make sure everything was working well before the launch.  We also had a poll so that people can vote for a launch time that best suits them.  At the time of the launch (Oct 12 03:00 GMT), we released the genesis hash and everyone started mining at the same time.  All it took was a simple change in the config file in order to mine the real coin instead of the testnet coin.

51% attack

The problem with alternative currencies is that the network hashrate is likely low when the coin starts up, making an easy target for any potential 51% attacker. With a little hope, a little prayer, a lot of hype, and due to our innovative release, there was a large hashrate from minute one.  We believe this deterred any attackers from targeting this chain.  As expected, there was a lot of natural orphaning of blocks, due to having so many people mining on the chain at once.  With block locking at every difficulty change, we were able to avoid any attacks from succeeding. (if there were any)

Source code

The source code is here:
   https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin

This is based on the latest Bitcoin code. You can either build the daemon version (litecoind) or you can build the gui version (Litecoin QT). See the build docs.

Similar to Bitcoin, you may want to create a litecoin.conf file here:
    Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Litecoin
    Win7: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Litecoin
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Litecoin
    Unix: ~/.litecoin

Port is 9333. Open if on your router if you know how. This will allow you to have more than 8 connections.
And default RPC port is 9332. This is the port miners will use to communicate with your client/daemon.

Sample litecoin.conf file:
Code:
server=1
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password

#Change this if you want to use a different rpc port for mining
#rpcport=9332

#Only uncomment this if you are running litecoind and want to run Litecoin in the background (not Litecoin QT)
#daemon=1


So tell us what you think. Come to the Litecoin forums (http://forum.litecoin.net) or drop by #litecoin or #litecoin-dev on freenode IRC to chat.


why don't you ever post bruh? FLO(LTC codebase) reaching SegWit * Lightning Network ===>

Litecoin has got attention of big investors once again since Charlie Lee has announced to focus on Litecoin's development once again. Litecoin is really looking ready to take off at any moment. It has already gain good share of market for last couple of days. It will keep advancing towards high prices steadily.

That move of Charlie Lee to resign on coinbase and focus on litecoin fulltime made a big impact, because it says that LTC will go forward and not a shadow of btc anymore. Furthermore, as the btc fork is coming, its like there is only two major coins that others want to change their btcs. Its either eth and LTC, and right now, LTC is the most affordable one, with far more stability and use. Honestly, litecoins future is still very very high.
Its possible that btc holders can just change to support LTC, because it is tested already thatn support BTC or BTU.

Hi.
I would like to get a Litecoin Android wallet but unfortunately I cannot download it from the official website.
I do not want a non official wallet for safety reasons.
Where can I download one? Preferably an android wallet like electrum that I don't have to download the whole blockchain.

Thank you in advance.

The question is not if it can go to 0.02. It's if it can go to 0.05 like in 2013.  Grin

Looks like LTC has got high trading activity again today. Earlier about 102 thousand btc volume was being traded but is now down to about 89 thousand something - that's higher than eth's trading volume which is at 60 thousand something btc.  I htink ltc network transactions are rising continuously. So I'd say things are looking positive for ltc right now. Waiting for it to break 0.016.....

It broke 0.02 in last rally few weeks ago. It will surely do it again and will reach to new all time high in coming days. There is lot of hype outside and people are sharing charts showing it going to the moon. Final decision is yours how much can you risk or ready to move on.

I would say 791 days till the next block half is "close" and now is the time to save up your LTC...

Buy, Buy, Buy and Earn, Earn, Earn!

With the creator back working full time on LTC and this community growing as it is, I see a very very bright future for this coin.

I am going LONG term and saving every bit of LTC i get for the next few years.  Cool

If you are doing the same, then I will see you on the other side of the moon.  Wink
