Of the three cryptocurrencies on Coinbase, Litecoin seems like the baby brother that doesn’t get attention. Both Travis and I have been fans of litecoin since we first discovered it for a number of reasons.

And in this episode we invite Charlie Lee, the inventor of Litecoin to the show to discuss his vision for the little coin that could. We’re revisited by Fiat Currency and we discovered a nifty little app that invests your leftover change in crypto while you sleep.

But now isn’t the time for sleeping. Sit up straight. Eyes front. And ears open wide so we can fill them with crypto goodness. It’s time for episode #56 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Feature: Charlie Lee Interview

Charlie Lee, a former Google employee and creator of Litecoin. Litecoin is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Creation and transfer of coins is based on an open source cryptographic protocol and is not managed by any central authority. While inspired by, and in most regards technically nearly identical to Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin has some minor technical differences compared to Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Litecoin also has almost zero payment cost.
