What I am looking to do is soft fork on litecoin and create my own coin! I know that I need to make a node but I can't find any process that shows me how to create my own coin.

Soft forks are generally used to upgrade an existing protocol in a backward compatible way. If you were to create a new coin you would need to hard fork the Litecoin protocol. How you do that depends on your motivation. If you just want to create a new coin to make money I would strongly advise against it. There are thousands of altcoins that have no unique selling proposition. It sounds like any coin you would make would also have no unique selling proposition.

If you want to experiment with your own network I would recommend looking into Signet.

  • my problem statement is i want new coin but ledger should be same.(example if i fork litecoin and the address in litecoin ledger should be available in my new coin with same balance but name should be different). User,A have LTC,1 same value should be available in NCoin,1 for the same address Sep 16, 2020 at 16:23
  • Right, you get that with a hard fork. Sep 16, 2020 at 16:25
  • how we can share ledger in hard fork ? as per my understanding for hard fork everything will be separate , network ,address prefix, all stuff can you please explain and provide me any guide line so i can start Sep 16, 2020 at 16:41
  • @AwaisSakhi Could you clarify whether you mean that the ledger should continue to be the same after the split?
