Features & Technology

A modified version of the algorithm to mine Litecoin whilst mining Bitcoin which was originally meant to stop large hardware attacks by requiring huge amounts of memory, an alternative to SHA256.
To ensure that the miner traffic within the network does not consists of any bad actors the difficulty is automatically revised, giving every honest miners a chance, this was based off Namecoin’s mechanism.
Keeping away and securing the network from 51% attackers is a huge pain, Litecoin has solved that by the difficulty revision every 3.5 days but also with a larger hashrate of internal miners to deter from any attack.
Based off SolidCoins fast transfer and transactions, Litecoin was modelled to make a block within 2.5 minutes after the next block, which is quarter of compared to Bitcoin.
To mimic the trajectory of the growth of network and coins within the network like Bitcoin, new coins will be minted after mining blocks, keeping at a total of 50 Litecoin per block.
