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.

  1. Plug in your Trezor device.
  2. Go to wallet.trezor.io.
  3. Select Litecoin in the top-left corner of the screen (see Getting to know Trezor Wallet#Switching cryptocurrencies (1)).
  4. 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.
