The guide to buying Litecoin with Coinhouse by card or bank transfer

The Coinhouse platform allows you to quickly invest in Litecoin.

Why buy Litecoin?

Litecoin is a copy of Bitcoin, with some simple changes in the source code, such as the use of a different mining protocol, reduced transaction fees, and a faster block creation rate, with a block-time of 2,5 minutes instead of 10 minutes on Bitcoin. Scrypt is the algorithm chosen for mining. Scrypt was supposed to be ASIC-resistant, which would have ensured a more decentralized mining ecosystem, with less concentration for mining farms. Unfortunately, the first Scrypt ASICs appeared in 2014.

Buying Litecoin: cutting-edge technology

Litecoin integrates the famous MimbleWimble protocol, a mass of techniques and technology to give an opaque blockchain. The goal is to increase user privacy. Another significant advantage of this protocol is its increased scalability compared to other technology that is currently used. The size of a block on the chain is drastically reduced, which is highly beneficial for new users connecting to the network.

Buying Litecoin: entering an active, vibrant community

Litecoin uses a highly decentralised proof-of-work algorithm. In general, this digital coin can count on the support and creativity of a very active community led by Charlie Lee, the creator of this cryptocurrency. One result of this collective effort is that the network can update functionalities and integrate new technology a lot faster that many other protocols.
Today, Litecoin is in the top ten of digital currencies by market capitalisation, partly due to a trading history going back to 2013 and partly due to the regular, tenacious work of its community.

Buying Litecoin can be a wise decision. It was the first altcoin created and is a faster, less expensive option to Bitcoin. These two virtual coins can be considered more complementary to one another than competing against each other. There are many platforms where you can buy Litecoin with Coinhouse, a French trading platform, being one. Our platform is easy-to-use, intuitive and allows you to buy Litecoin and most other popular cryptocurrencies.
