A peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Litecoin was an early bitcoin spinoff or altcoin, starting in October 2011. In technical details, Litecoin is nearly identical to Bitcoin. Litecoin processes transactions much faster than bitcoin; however, this speed is said to produce “orphaned blocks”–when two litecoin miners produce blocks at similar times. Litecoin is currently the 9th leading cryptocurrency in terms on market capitalization.

A hard fork of Bitcoin, that allows mining of Bitcoin with GPU. Bitcoin Gold implements a new PoW algorithm, Equihash, that allows anyone to become a miner with only basic hardware. As a result, Bitcoin Gold mining would be spread among many miners, instead of a few large companies, making mining decentralized again.
