Questions tagged [litecoin]

Questions about Litecoin are generally off topic unless they have applicability to Bitcoin. This tag should be used for questions regarding Litecoin, a cryptocurrency based on Bitcoin. Litecoin is very similar to Bitcoin with a few distinguishing differences: blocks that are mined every 2.5 minutes on average and the scrypt hashing algorithm for its Proof of Work algorithm.
