Litecoin Halving 

The Litecoin halving event has been designed in the code and will occur every four years. This year, the event will occur at around 9: 30 hours on 5th August 2019. According to the current block statistics, the halving will occur at block 1,680,000

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin cryptocurrency, said that after four days, the reward for miners will be halved. The last time the LTC network was halved in 2015, and the next is scheduled for 2023. For Litecoin ‘holders’, the reward for mining a Litecoin block will be reduced from 25 LTC to 12.5 LTC
