The management and processing of these transactions is carried out collectively by the decentralized Litecoin network. If you'd like to help support the network, you can do so by running Litecoin Core - the most popular full node Client - by following the instructions below.

Lightning Network

The Lightning Network was first proposed by Thaddeus Dryja and Joseph Poon in 2015. It was designed to solve one of the biggest problems cryptocurrencies face: scalability. Litecoin launched its Lightning Network in 2018.

The Lightning Network is a 2nd layer solution. Micropayments on the Lightning Network are guided by smart contracts; sets of rules that must be followed for transactions to take place. The fees are likely to be very small compared to the fees charged by miners on the main blockchain. The work done by Lightning Network nodes are far easier than that done by miners.

OmniLite is an open-source platform that facilitates the creation of decentralized tokens and smart contracts as well as digital assets, like tokens and NFTs.

Being a layered protocol built on top of Litecoin’s blockchain, Omnilite has a distinct advantage over other blockchains due to its integrity, network security, scalability and comparatively low fees. The tokens created via OmniLite can be considered to be as an extension of Litecoin and as a result, the transactions from these tokens are recorded on Litecoin’s blockchain.

All digital assets created via OmniLite benefit from the Litecoin network’s attributes, innovative technology and security.
