1.A LITTLE ABOUT LITECOIN
The first appearance of the cryptocurrency was recorded in 2011, and 2 years later, litecoin sharply jumped up.
At that time, analysts seriously began to believe that the currency would become number 2 after bitcoin.
Further steps in the market slowed down the growth of LTC. In 2014, bitcoin went into free float and grew every day, and litecoin seemed to hang in one place.
Even then, there were the first signs of instability of the currency.
The main reason for the brake was the position of the miners, who said that it is not at all profitable for them to mine LTC, compared to bitcoin.
Miners contributed to the popularization of the crypto coin, and litecoin slid sharply from second place to fourth.
We almost forgot to mention who became the creator of the crypto asset.
If bitcoin was created by the fictional Satoshi Nakamoto (no one still knows who is hidden under this name), then litecoin has a founding father-Charles Lee, a talented programmer who lives in the United States, in San Francisco.
At the time of the creation of the digital currency, Lee worked for Google, which represented the services of Coinbase.
