Litecoin is a fork of Bitcoin’s codebase with faster block times as well as larger supply.

Litecoin intended to be a peer to peer Internet currency that enables instant, near zero cost payments to anyone in the world.

The project considers itself complementary to Bitcoin much like a silver to Bitcoin’s gold. It is often used as a pseduo-testnet for Bitcoin, adopting new protocol changes before they are deployed on Bitcoin. The project is open source and aims to be a fully decentralized global payment network without the presence of central authorities in the network.
