Electrum Litecoin is a real alternative currency similar to Bitcoin. Electrum Litecoin aims to create a coin that is silver to Bitcoin's gold.
Electrum 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, Electrum 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.
- Workaround negative version numbers serialization bug.
- Fix out-of-bounds check. (Litecoin currently does not use this codepath so this change makes no difference, but we apply this patch just to match Bitcoin 0.8.5.)
