Special features

This Litecoin Return Calculator offers several special features:

  • Adjust for Inflation: Optionally adjust returns for inflation using the CPI-U.
  • Total and Annualized Return: Computes both the total and annualized return on an investment.
  • Graph Performance: Optionally graph the growth or drawdown of the investment over time.
  • Hover for Value: Hover over the graph to see the value of the investment on any given day. Hovering also reveals gain or loss to that point.

Methodology and data sources

The Litecoin Return Calculator uses daily closing prices for Litecoin from CoinGecko as well as historical Litecoin return data from CryptoCompare. CPI-U is sourced from FRED. Please note that the calculator uses end-of-day prices, and intraday price movements are not reflected in the calculations.

Next, convert Litecoins to dollars with historical data, or the opposite (dollars to Litecoins). On the investment side, I build a Daily Moving Average tool for LTC, and a Litecoin Drawdown Calculator.


While we strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information, the results from this calculator are for informational purposes only and should not be considered financial advice. Always conduct your own research and consult with a financial advisor before making investment decisions.

We hope this tool helps you make informed decisions about Litecoin investments. For more financial tools, check out our Investing category page.
