As mentioned, Litecoin uses a code very similar to the one used for Bitcoin. But Bitcoin's participants, known as "miners," compete with each other using specialized computer equipment to be the first to discover new blocks. Unlike this proof-of-work consensus, LTC incorporates the Scrypt proof-of-work algorithm. As a result, it makes it possible to issue cryptocurrencies with consumer-facing hardware.

Another feature that differentiates Litecoin from Bitcoin is the time it takes for blocks to be confirmed. It takes an average of nine minutes for Bitcoin to produce a block, while it takes two and a half minutes to make a block on the Litecoin network.  

Besides, Litecoin's price can be affected by the same factors as Bitcoin's. For example, changes in LTC demand in day-to-day transactions or any updates to rules and regulations regarding digital assets will affect the value of crypto. 

Litecoin, one of the oldest cryptocurrencies, is among the first to come after Bitcoin. Both have the goal of being accepted ways to pay for goods and services, but Litecoin is seen as cheaper and more convenient to use.
