Peer-to-peer network based digital currency

Litecoin is a free open source peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.

Litecoin is a fork of Bitcoin. By default connects to an IRC network to discover other peers. Full transaction history is stored locally at each client. This requires 5+ GB of space, slowly growing.

This package provides the daemon (litecoind), the CLI tool and the daemon.

    New version available -> litecoin

       * New upstream release.
       * Important Security Updates
        - This release contains fixes that harden node and network security. These
          fixes are important for every node operator and wallet user.
         - Limit and tightly manage memory usage in events of high network traffic or
           when connected to extremely slow peers. This protects nodes on lower end
           hardware to not run out of memory in the face of increased network
       * RPC API Changes
        - Added addconnection for use by functional tests
        - getpeerinfo provides 2 new fields per peer, addr_processed and
          addr_rate_limited, that track addr message processing

    New version available -> litecoin

    * New upstream release.
    – An issue with MWEB key generation for older wallets that were upgraded was solved. Keys are now generated from the appropriate keypools, and coins sent to previously generated stealth addresses are recoverable. Use rescanblockchain after upgrading to recover any missing MWEB coins.

    New version available -> litecoin 0.21.2-1~xtradeb1

    * New upstream release.
    * Consensus changes
    – This release implements the proposed MWEB consensus rules (LIP002, LIP003, and LIP004)
    * P2P and network changes
    – A new service flag, NODE_MWEB (1 << 24), was added to signal to peers that the node supports MWEB. When connected peers both advertise this capability, they are expected to provide all MWEB data when sharing transactions, blocks, and compact blocks with each other. - Nodes now announce compact block version 3 support, informing peers that they can provide MWEB data in compact blocks. * Updated RPCs - getblockheader now returns an additional mweb_header field containing all of the MWEB header data, and an mweb_amount field containing the total number of coins pegged-in to the MWEB after applying the block. - getblock now returns an additional mweb field containing MWEB header info, and all of the inputs, outputs, and kernels in the MWEB block. - Added mwebweight, descendantmwebweight, ancestormwebweight, and mweb fields to getrawmempool, getmempoolancestors, getmempooldescendants and getmempoolentry. - Added new fields to describe MWEB transaction inputs, outputs, and kernels for getrawtransaction. - Changes to Wallet or GUI related RPCs can be found in the GUI or Wallet section below. * New settings - Added "fMWEBFeatures" option for enabling the new "Advanced MWEB Features" control. * Wallet Database - Added "mweb_coin" type which stores MWEB coins and their derived keys. - Added CHDChain version 4 which includes an MWEB key index counter and the stealth address scan key. - Added CKeyMetadata version 14 which includes the MWEB key index. - Added FEATURE_MWEB = 210000 minimum database version. * Wallet RPC changes - Added 'listwallettransactions' which matches the transaction list display values. * GUI changes - Added an "Advanced MWEB Features" control for testing. It’s only available when the "-debug" argument is supplied, and the option is turned on in the - settings dialog.
