Creator of Litecoin

Primarily known in the crypto world as the creator of Litecoin, Lee – like many early adopters of Bitcoin – entered the crypto sphere by getting into Bitcoin mining. Lee sees Litecoin as the cryptocurrency best suited for smaller, lightweight transactions like online retail shopping, while Bitcoin is the currency for more heavyweight transactions like international payments.
