What is Litecoin?
Litecoin was founded by Charlie Lee in 2011, as the “silver to Bitcoin’s gold”, Litecoin was developed with a variety of different goals in mind. Lee aimed to improve on Bitcoin, which he saw as lacking a few vital features:

Fixed total money supply – 84 million coins to Bitcoin’s 21 million
Proof of work / Scrypt mining algorithm instead of SHA 256 – it doesn't compete for mining hash
