Lee is a man born in Ivory Coast who later moved to the United States at the age of 13. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a bachelor's and master's degree in computer science in 2000.
Who is Charlie Lee ...?
Bobby Lee is a brother of Charlie Lee as the founder of the BTCC China cryptocurrency exchange.
He also joined Google in 2000, including writing Chrome OS and YouTube mobile code.
Later in 2011, Lee was interested in the development of Bitcoin cryptocurrency while reading articles on Silk Road. He is also in contact with Mike Hearn, a developer who made the bitcoin core client software.
The development of early bitcoin adopters, Lee began experimenting with crypto mining. Lee's first cryptocurrency project was called Fairbix, which was developed in September 2011.
This coin mimics bitcoin, a digital currency that uses most of Tenebrix's source code. The Fairbrix project was unsuccessful because of pre-mined issues and software bugs that were vulnerable to attack 51 percent.
Lee then adopted Fairbix's proof of work protocol for Litecoin. In October 2011, Lee released Litecoin on Bitcointalk, where this coin was created to fill free time while working on Google.
At that time, Charlie Lee released Litecoin to the public after mining 150 coins. LTC is created not to compete with Bitcoin, but will be used for smaller transactions.
To this day, LTC is a coin whose value has not increased significantly. After the launch of Litecoin for several months, in July 2013 Lee left Google and worked at Coinbase. And keep in mind, at that time Coinbase had not yet listed LTC in this exchange.
Then, in December 2017, Lee had stated that he sold almost all Litecoin ownership because of a conflict of interest.
For this action, he was criticized via Twitter because it might have an effect on the price of the LTC. Then in May 2018, Lee revealed via Twitter that he would leave the Litecoin project in the near future.
Certainly, this is to ensure complete decentralization of the Litecoin crypto currency. Not curious anymore who is the founder of Litecoin who left Google, and he is Charlie Lee or a writer of the code Chrome OS and YouTube Mobille...
