#Litecoin is the largest of the “bitcoin clones,” making it far more understandable for most investors.
Its founder, a former Google engineer, designed Litecoin by using bitcoin’s original codebase and modifying it to create blocks four times faster.
That has made the younger fork cheaper and faster than bitcoin to verify.
Litecoin’s size also makes it less vulnerable to a “51% attack” than other bitcoin-like currencies.
Litecoin closed down -1.660 at 151.230. Volume was 20% below average (neutral) and Bollinger Bands were 17% wider than normal.
