Get Started

WEB BASED WALLET TECHNOLOGY CAN PRESENT SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL RISK IN THE EVENT OF A COMPROMISE WITHIN OUR INFRASTRUCTURE. YOU SHOULD THEREFORE CAREFULLY CONSIDER WHETHER THIS IS RIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES.

Welcome to the litecoin.gg Wiki. These documents outline wallet functionality, account help, tutorials, and comprehensive legal and privacy information.


When you create an account on litecoin.gg, generate litecoin addresses or even send & receive litecoin, you do so through a unique and secure medium. We're able to deliver this experience all in the comfort of your very own browser.

We do not have any control of the private keys associated with your addresses, this means there's considerably less potential for theft or compromise since we cannot access the keys associated with addresses on our platform.

When you create a Litecoin address on litecoin.gg, you will automatically receive an email with a complete backup of your private key in an encrypted format using the password you set on your litecoin.gg account at the time of creating that address.

We encrypt the private keys of addresses in your browser using military-grade encryption by using your account password. We then store your account password on our platform in a cryptographically unreadable form that we cannot decrypt.

Security

Anti-virus alerts

Litecoin.gg may make use of aggressive deobfuscation technology that can result in false anti-virus alerts, this is done to deter hackers and protect our intellectual property. You may safely ignore these warnings and whitelist our site, if applicable.

Wallet security

We use semi-trustless technology on this platform, which means our system can never have control of your litecoin, instead, your account password is used to encrypt the private keys associated with your litecoin.

Creating a new litecoin address binds that address to your account by encrypting the private keys through your browser and then providing our platform with a copy of the encrypted keys.

Open source software

The software used by litecoin.gg is not open source, or may only be partially open source.

Email authentication

We use a 2-factor authentication system that requires two different pieces of authentication before we proceed with your login. The first is your password and the second is a security code sent to the email associated with your account.

Lost email access

Due to the potential of accounts being compromised by hackers, it is currently not possible to reset or change the email associated with your account.

TOTP authentication

TOTP is a form of 2-factor authentication commonly used by authentication systems like Authy and Google Authenticator.

Based on our analysis, we have decided not to implement this authentication system. TOTP is considered to be a very secure two-factor authentication method, however, it is prone to be lost and can be challenging to set up in some cases.

If you are concerned about account security you should use a strong password for your email and enable TOTP authentication with your email provider. It's also important to disable SMS verification with all your providers as this is no longer considered secure.

Enabling TOTP authentication for our users would provide negligible security benefits, assuming you already have TOTP authentication enabled with your email provider.


Fees

We use a custom system to calculate the best possible network transaction fees based on the Litecoin network at the time of your transaction. Due to our use of automatic sweeping ("input consolidation"), you may find some transactions have a higher fee, this is normal.

We use cutting edge address and transaction technology to deliver the lowest in litecoin network fees; our average transaction fee is between 0.000001 LTC to 0.00001 LTC.
