Today’s Video Briefing takes another look at one of the oldest stars of cryptocurrency: Litecoin. Although this popular crypto has outlived many other digital currencies, it’s also starting to show its age. In addition to sharing many of Bitcoin’s advantages, it also has some of the same disadvantages: like scaling difficulties, and an energy-intensive mining algorithm, to name only a few.
Kiana introduces some of the key points from the latest DARE report, an investment-grade analysis on the Litecoin project, which you can read for free on Crypto Briefing’s website.
