I have been lurking here for a little while and thought I should say Hi!
Just starting to get into cryptocurrencies, and decided to start with Litecoin for these reasons:
1) Smaller blockchain, so I can run my own full node
2) More egalitarian distribution of coins, at least according to: https://bitinfocharts.com/top-100-richest-litecoin-addresses.html
I understand Bitcoin has a lot of early coins that probably belong to Satoshi, too.
3) More coins than Bitcoin will be produced, but not silly like Doge.
An iOS client would be nice, but I think it's on the way?
Anyway, looking forward to finally understand cryptocurrency a bit more!
