Being very similar to Bitcoin, the developers of Litecoin have implemented a modified version of the code (MIT free license) that allows its functioning with the same mining software as the former. It distinguishes itself by the speed of the transactions, the much more frequent creation of blocks (every two and a half minutes) and grants mining without any special materials. Its value passed 28 Euros in May of 2017.
