Litecoin (LTC) è una criptovaluta peer-to-peer ed un progetto di software open source rilasciato con licenza MIT/X11. Dal punto di vista tecnico ha preso ispirazione e risulta molto simile a Bitcoin (BTC): la coniazione e la transazione di Litecoin avviene grazie ad un protocollo open source e non è controllata da alcuna autorità centrale. L'intenzione degli sviluppatori di Litecoin era di migliorare Bitcoin attraverso alcuni cambiamenti importanti nel processo di validazione delle transazioni. A partire dal Novembre del 2013 alcune importanti agenzie mediatiche come il Wall Street Journal, CNBC e il New York Times hanno indicato Litecoin come alternativa (o addirittura come possibile successore) di Bitcoin. Litecoin è la quinta criptovaluta per capitalizzazione di mercato.
