Litecoin solves some important issues of Bitcoin

The goal of making Litecoin measurably faster than Bitcoin was achieved by reducing the block confirmation timing. As a result the timing was reduced from 10 minutes to 2.5 minutes which made LTC 4 times faster than Bitcoin.
It has fixed amount of coins
LTC insures a great security by issuing only 84 million Litecoins that can ever exist. In addition it is stated by the company that 55.58 million coins have already been released so there are only about 30 million coins left to be mined for the future. In fact the number of the LTC was created based on the number of Bitcoins which is 21 million. The amount of LTC was created considering that it will be 4 times faster than Bitcoin. The fixed number of Litecoins “protects” the cryptocurrency from inflation and other external influences which endanger any other traditional currencies making Litecoin much more sustainable.
