charles lee litecoinWE all know that Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonymous for the person or firm that created Bitcoin. Or at least the technical and mathematical infrastructure of the most popular digital currency. But who is the creator of our beloved Litecoin?

Charles Lee

Apparently a sofware engineer working in the Bay Area is the godfather of Litecoin, because Lee is the creator and lead developer for LTC. He holds a Bachelors and Masters degree in electrical engineering and computer science from M.I.T.

Litecoin after Fairbrix

Litecoin was launched in October of 2011. Before Litecoin Charles Lee actually tried to launch some other Cryptocurrenciy. His first, Fairbrix, was a clone of another, called Tenebrix and turned out in a fisasco. Litecoin is holding strong though. It is still the best digital coin after Bitcoin.
