Litecoin Core

Setup

Litecoin Core is the original Litecoin client and it builds the backbone of the network. It downloads and, by default, stores the entire history of Litecoin transactions (which is currently more than 7 GBs); depending on the speed of your computer and network connection, the synchronization process can take anywhere from a few hours to a day or more.

To download Litecoin Core, visit litecoin.org.

Running

The following are some helpful notes on how to run Litecoin on your native platform.

Unix

Unpack the files into a directory and run:

  • bin/litecoin-qt (GUI) or
  • bin/litecoind (headless)

Windows

Unpack the files into a directory, and then run litecoin-qt.exe.

OS X

Drag Litecoin-Core to your applications folder, and then run Litecoin-Core.

Development
