Hybrid mining

No mining hardware? No problem; Hive Mining doesn't need any. Or, mine with traditional SHA256 hardware.

The Hive

Soon, LCC holders can become bee keepers; worker bees secure the network while earning rewards.

Fair Launch

Initial distribution based on years of Litecoin blockchain history, with 10:1 claim ratio.

Real-world Projects

LCC is working with ACAIM to investigate medical uses for blockchain technology.

It Fell From Space!

Litecoin Cash was the first cryptocurrency to be dropped from space.

Modern Codebase

Our 0.16 wallet release brings full support for HD wallets and native Segwit using bech32 addresses.

Season I: Birth of Litecoin Cash

Litecoin Cash was forked from Litecoin on 18 Feb 2018 at block 1371111, with a 10:1 Claim Ratio. For every 1 LTC held at the fork block, LTC holders could claim 10 LCC. If you held LTC at block 1371111 but haven't claimed yet, your LCC are still waiting for you!

Merchant focus: Cryptobar
Cryptobar, on Tenerife, was the very first brick-and-mortar location to accept Litecoin Cash. They'll be happy to let you pay your tab with LCC, and will even make you a delicious Litecoin Cash Spring Pizza.

After the fork block, Litecoin Cash switched to SHA256 proof-of-work hashes. This enables a new use for previously obsolete Bitcoin mining hardware. Mining difficulty is recalculated every block, using Evan Duffield's proven DarkGravity V3 for more predictable block times as well as network protection from multipool hopping. To prevent early dominant miners from having an unfair advantage, block rewards scaled up linearly over the first 2000 blocks.

The fork features replay attack protection & a new address prefix to prevent confusion and inter-chain issues.

LCC's target block time of 2.5 minutes gives 4 times the transaction bandwidth of Bitcoin, while transactions are 90% cheaper than Litecoin. HD wallets and native SegWit with bech32 addresses are fully supported.

To celebrate the success of our first season of development, Litecoin Cash became the first cryptocurrency to be dropped from space.

We partnered with Sent Into Space to send a balloon to an altitude of 32km, where it released 160000 Litecoin Cash. Multiple on-board cameras captured the action.

Season II: The Hive

Soon, a brand new method of mining will be added to Litecoin Cash.

The Hive, our agent-based mining proposal, requires no specialised hardware; any desktop PC is fine. It's centered around the concept of worker bees, which can be created by any LCC holder, who then becomes a beekeeper.

Once mature, worker bees have a finite lifespan during which they live inside the blockchain and help to secure it by minting blocks. Beekeepers will earn rewards whenever one of their bees mints a block.

  • Existing SHA256 miners and pools are not affected. Proof-of-work blocks will be accepted by the network at any time, so SHA256 mining hardware never needs to stand idle.
  • 51% network attacks are rendered ineffective. Worker bees won't mint blocks on an attacker's private chain, so they cannot accumulate enough chain work to perform a 51% hashpower attack.
  • The mining process will be democratised, as any LCC holder can become a beekeeper.

The Hive will be available on a testnet soon.

Our whitepapers explain our goals and vision, and are available below.

Full Wallet: Litecoin Cash Core v0.16.0.1

Litecoin Cash Core wallets form the backbone of the Litecoin Cash network.
They download and store the full LCC blockchain locally.

Light Wallet: Electrum-LCC

Electrum-LCC is a light wallet; it doesn't need to download the full blockchain to operate.
It's ideal if you want to import a keyphrase from Ledger, Trezor, Electrum-LTC or Loaf.
Your keys are stored just as securely as with the full wallet.

Mobile Wallet: Coinomi

Coinomi is a light wallet for iOS and Android which fully supports LCC.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you using the Litecoin name? Is this an official Litecoin project?

No. We're using the Litecoin Cash name simply because it has become customary in recent months for a coin which forks a blockchain to prefix its name with the name of the coin being forked. This practice has become a widely understood convention. We're not associated or affiliated with Charlie Lee or any of the Litecoin team in any way; we are big fans though.

Can I still claim LCC if I was holding Litecoin during the fork?

Absolutely. If you were holding Litecoin at block 1371111, and you haven't yet claimed LCC, it's still there waiting for you. Always practice safe forking. That means you must never paste private keys that hold live funds into ANY website or wallet in order to claim fork coins -- including ours. First, move your LTC to a new address, and only then may you use the private key from the "old" address to claim your LCC.

We've made it super easy to claim. No need to mess around in the debug console! Download a wallet for your platform, and you'll find a menu item to help you import your Litecoin private keys and claim your Litecoin Cash.

If I find a golden ticket from the Spacedrop, can I still claim?

Yes! Just email the code from your golden ticket to [email protected].

Can you explain it all in the form of a 9 second video involving a psychedelic unicorn?
