Litecoin’s New SegWit (P2SH) Addresses

P2SH stands for “Pay to script hash”. Segregated Witness accounts and multisig accounts use these addresses.

New Addresses in short

  1. Litecoin changes the format of some of its addresses.
  2. L-addresses are non-P2SH (non-SegWit) addresses and they remain unchanged (Legacy Litecoin accounts).
  3. All addresses starting with “3” will now begin with “M”. (The entire address changes, not just the prefix.)
  4. This will not affect your litecoin holdings. 3- and M-addresses are freely convertible. Imagine this as a street being renamed — both names still point to one location.
  5. TREZOR Wallet only accepts M-addresses as valid P2SH addresses. Please use the converter here to translate between 3- and M-addresses.
  6. Sending litecoins to your TREZOR? M-address refused? Use a 3-address. Please use the converter here to translate between them.
