In technical details, Litecoin is nearly identical to Bitcoin. LTC is the native token of Litecoin. Litecoin's network offers instant, near-zero cost payments that can be conducted by individuals or institutions across the globe. It uses the proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm in order to secure their networks.You can buy and sell LTC for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade LTC for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade LTC to CAD based on the LTC price.
