Litecoin address example

Nikita Verkhovin

Litecoin has three main address types, from old to the most modern:

  • Legacy, pay-to-pubkey-hash (P2PKH).
  • Script, pay-to-script-hash (P2SH).
  • Bech32, pay-to-witness-public-key-hash (P2WPKH).

Litecoin address examples:

Type Example

Bech32 (P2WPKH) ltc1qhzjptwpym9afcdjhs7jcz6fd0jma0l0rc0e5yr

It is possible to receive transactions using any address. However, using the most modern address type will result in a slight reduction in network fees.
