The scrypt algorithm that Litecoin is using happens to be safer than the other hashing algorithms. In this case, the Scrypt provides for more efficient processing power unlike in the SHA-256 algorithm.
The Litecoin blockchain is capable of handling higher transaction volume than its counterpart - Bitcoin. Due to more frequent block generation, the network supports more transactions without a need to modify the software in the future. As a result, merchants get faster confirmation times, while still having ability to wait for more confirmations when selling bigger ticket items.
Decentralized access allowing any party with the open-source software and internet access to send and receive Bitcoin irreversibly without third party interference or trust.
Litecoin is not subjected to inflation because there is a fixed maximum supply of 84 million litecoin.
