A Bitcoin variant optimized for CPU mining using scrypt as a proof of work scheme
Litecoin is a real alternative currency similar to Bitcoin. Electrum Litecoin aims to create a coin that is silver to Bitcoin's gold.

What is more, Litecoin keeps the unique traits and attributes of Bitcoin, while adding to the mixture CPU-specific mining and a 2.5 minute block rate.

This way, Litecoin doesn't have to compete for the used up computational cycles of your graphics card if you're already mining Bitcoins, but can work independently on your processor.
