How to Buy Litecoin (LTC)
Litecoin (LTC) is one of the very first projects to copy and modify Bitcoin’s code and use it to launch a new cryptocurrency.
以"比特金，萊特银"的宣传口号， 萊特币与比特币有着许多相似之处。 因此，LTC在交易者中享有持久的人气，他们依靠它在供应减少的情况下而进行反弹，并在牛市中追踪比特币的价格增长。

Why buy LTC?
Litecoin is intended to be a decentralized, peer-to-peer form of payment, so many traders purchase LTC in the hope that one day it will be widely accepted by merchants.
Other reasons you may want to buy LTC
Where to buy LTC?
- Direct Purchase
You can purchase it directly from another individual in person or over the web.
- Crypto ATM
You can try to locate a crypto ATM near you that offers LTC. However, the ATM rates can be exorbitant and there is no guarantee that you can find a counterpart to make the trade with.
Many find that it is easiest to purchase it through an exchange, like Kraken.
Aside from offering a simple interface and the lowest fees in the industry, Kraken is constantly rated one of the most secure and trusted crypto exchanges in the world. This matters because once crypto is lost, it is nearly impossible to recover.
At Kraken, we take security seriously with state-of-the-art technology, policies, and procedures that protect client funds. We do not compromise when it comes to security, and neither should you.
How much LTC can I buy?
想在预算内购买 LTC？无需担心，Kraken 提供的最小订单量为0.05 LTC 以帮助您接触各种类型的资产。
当然，您也可以执行更大的 LTC订单。对于大型交易者来说，在 Kraken 上购买或交易 2,000 LTC 或更多的情况并不少见。

Complete the verification process
With “Starter” verification, you can buy LTC with other cryptocurrencies. All you need to do is provide your name, date of birth, country and phone number.

Once your cash or cryptocurrency hits your account, you’re ready to start buying LTC. With your Kraken account you’ll also have access to our charting tools, 24-hour global client support, advanced order types, and leveraged trading.

Where to keep your LTC
Once you’re done buying litecoin, you should look for a way to secure it. The best way to do this is with a wallet. A wallet is a device or software application that stores your crypto but also allows you to spend it.
There are many types of wallets you can use to keep your digital assets safe. Mobile and web-based wallets make frequent transactions easy. Hardware wallets are best suited for secure, long-term storage. When you’re choosing a crypto wallet, think of what you plan to do with your tokens. A wallet that best suits your needs is always the right choice.
It is important to note that Kraken is an exchange service and not a wallet service. So while we allow our clients to hold funds with us while they’re being used to make trades, you may want to consider separating your holdings into multiple wallets. After all, it is never good to keep all of your eggs in one basket, even one protected by the mighty Kraken!
