Litecoin stands out among other cryptocurrencies due to its faster transaction times and lower transaction fees. Its mining algorithm Scrypt is designed to resist specialized mining hardware making it more decentralized compared to other digital assets. Additionally, Litecoin was one of the first cryptocurrencies to implement Segregated Witness (SegWit) which separates transaction signature data from transaction data increasing its capacity as well as reducing miners’ load on new blocks in order for them to get rewards quicker than before.
