What is Litecoin?

Litecoin (LTC) is almost an exact copy of the Bitcoin (BTC) network. The Litecoin network was the second-largest cryptocoin, before Ethereum (ETH) took over it's place. It even copied all the imperfections of the Bitcoin, except for two small parts. For instance, a block does not last 10 minutes but 2.5 minutes, also the number of supplies has quadrupled from Bitcoin. In this way, Bitcoin would be useful for large transactions and Litecoin for the smaller ones.
