Litecoin (LTC) was one of the first alternative coins (altcoins). The Litecoin network went live on 13 October 2011. Litecoin was a fork of the Bitcoin Core client, differing primarily by having a decreased block generation time (2.5 minutes), increased maximum number of coins and a different hashing algorithm (scrypt, instead of SHA-256).
How to use Litecoin with Trezor
Litecoin is integrated in Trezor Wallet. It is, therefore, possible to use it in the standard interface.
- Plug in your Trezor device.
- Go to wallet.trezor.io.
- Select Litecoin in the top-left corner of the screen (see Getting to know Trezor Wallet#Switching cryptocurrencies (1)).
- Work with Trezor Wallet as usual. For more information, see User manual.
Litecoin can also be safely used with Electrum-LTC, with the seed and private keys fully protected by the Trezor device. For more infomartion and a manual describing the Trezor setup, see Electrum-LTC. You can also see our manual for using Bitcoin with Electrum in Apps:Electrum - the setup should be very similar.
