As of now, the Litecoin network has processed over 245 million transactions since its inception, with a notable 39 million of those transactions occurring in 2024 alone. This achievement underscores Litecoin's enduring relevance and growing adoption within the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Litecoin was created in 2011 by Charlie Lee as a lighter and faster alternative to Bitcoin. It was designed to provide quicker transaction confirmations and lower fees, making it a practical option for everyday transactions and micro-payments.

Over the years, Litecoin has maintained its position as one of the top cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, thanks to its robust network and active development community.

Currently, Litecoin ranks as the 19th largest cryptocurrency, with a market cap of $6.196 million. At the time of writing, LTC was up 1.01% in the last 24 hours to $83.14.
