How to buy Litecoin?
The difficulty of buying Litecoin depends on where in the world you are and how you want to buy it as different countries have different rules, and some countries don't allow certain Litecoin exchanges. Buying Litecoin with a different Cryptocurrency is simple. Especially if you already have Bitcoin in your wallet, you can exchange Litecoin with Bitcoin.

• Buy Litecoin with fiat currency (GBP).
• Buying Litecoin with another cryptocurrency.
• Mine it.
Litecoin vs Bitcoin
One difference between Litecoin and Bitcoin is block time, Litecoin aims to process a block every 2.5 minutes, rather than 10 minutes that it takes for Bitcoin. This means that Litecoin can handle higher volume transactions which will reduce the risk of double spending attacks.
