I've been reading about Litecoin, yet I haven't found any mention to a person or group responsible for the fork. Who created litecoin and did he write a whitepaper explaining why?


After some searching it appears to be Charles Lee. Yet no whitepaper yet :(

This is the original announcement post by coblee. In a short bit of research, I wasn't able to find a formal paper. The post describes the changes divergent from Bitcoin.
