Litecoin (LTC)

Founder: Charlie Lee

Introduced: October 7, 2011

Founded by MIT grad and former Google engineer Charlie Lee, Litecoin is a cryptocurrency option marketed as an alternative to Bitcoin. But unlike its predecessor, this peer-to-peer virtual currency runs on the scrypt algorithm – with a faster block generation rate than Bitcoin. While Litecoin launched back in 2011, it was just added to Coinbase earlier this year – where you can buy LTC using a credit card. LTC has grown by 11.04% in value over the past month.
