Bitcoin probably has the highest name recognition and adaption out of all cryptocurrencies on the market. The fact that it was the first one gave it a good headstart and even those not very interested in the crypto industry will recognize the name Bitcoin. Being the first comer also means that projects launched after will try and improve the technologies you have introduced. This was the case with Litecoin and Bitcoin.
Like many other crypto projects at the time, Litecoin was created as a fork of Bitcoin, seeking to improve the original blockchain code. LTC became the first altcoin to reach the success it did. Even though Litecoin was created using the Bitcoin protocol, there are some differences to be noted. Firstly a new block on the Litecoin blockchain is generated four times faster than it does on the Bitcoin one. Also, there are more LTC available for mining than BTC, however, both possess a limited supply. LTC is mainly used for peer-to-peer transactions and is widely used to pay for goods online.
At the end of the day, Litecoin is more technologically advanced and Bitcoin is more accepted and recognized around the world. It is up to you to decide which is more important to you.
