About Litecoin (LTC)

Launched in 2011, Litecoin is one of the oldest cryptocurrencies apart from Bitcoin. One of the key differences is that Litecoin mining uses far more memory than Bitcoin. This is intentional, to encourage more individuals to mine the cryptocurrency. Like Bitcoin, Litecoin is an open-source cryptocurrency which enables peer-to-peer payments without a central authority.

FAQs

  • Is it safe to buy cryptocurrencies?

    The money you put into cryptocurrencies is not safe from value fluctuations. Cryptocurrencies are always a volatile investment. There are, however, ways to select an investment platform that will keep your investments safe. You want to look for a platform that operates in a safe and regulated environment with an experienced team. The platform should provide sufficient liquidity, reasonable volumes and employ state-of-the-art technology and safety while offering customers an easy-to-use, intuitive interface. You also want the platform of your choice to support fiat currencies as well as cryptocurrencies.

  • Is Bitpanda regulated?

    Yes. Bitpanda Payments is a subsidiary of Bitpanda and is a licensed payment service provider under PSD II/ZaDiG 2018 and is based in Austria. It is supervised by the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA).

  • What’s the difference between a coin and a token?

    Tokens have wider functionality than crypto coins. Coins are native to their own blockchain, like Bitcoin, and are used as a form of digital money. Tokens, on the other hand, are often built on an existing blockchain and are used for a wide variety of functions, like fuelling applications, payment for validating transactions etc.

  • What’s the difference between cryptocurrencies and fiat money?

    There is no physical BTC token so you can think of Bitcoin as digital money. Bitcoin transactions are fully transparent and can’t be censored. You can send money to anyone in the world with ease. It’s a financial system backed by thousands of computers around the world, instead of a single central bank or government. “Fiat money," on the other hand is legal money issued by a state authority without intrinsic internal value. It serves as a medium of exchange and is the opposite of commodity money like silver or gold.
