Litecoin (LTC) Mining Pool

Litecoin (LTC) is the younger brother of the famous Bitcoin with some distinctive features. It was forked from Bitcoin Core with lower block generation time and increased amount of total supply of coins. Moreover, with the implementation of Lightning Network, transactions on the network are pretty close to instant.
Litecoin blockchain consensus is achieved with Scrypt, a Proof-of-Work hashing algorithm. Despite the fact that Litecoin mining can be done on CPUs, the GPUs shows significantly better hashrate results. However, since 2014, Litecoin is actively mined using ASICs.

Litecoin Mining Hardware Benchmarks

Probably, you can build an efficient mining farm with GPU hardware only. However, we strongly suggest you to consider buying an ASIC miner for profitable LTC mining.

What else to consider when building a mining rig for Litecoin?

First of all, an open-air rig to keep multiple mining machines running cool is a must. Secondly, it is mandatory to have a separate ventilation system or some other cooling systems to avoid overheating of the ASIC miners. To control this, get some special equipment to monitor the temperature of your devices. And a stable internet connection, of course.

We use PPLNS & PPS methods to calculate rewards for Litecoin mining. The mining fees are 1% & 1.5% accordingly.
Litecoin mining is dominated by ASICs. We would not want to impose this or that manufacturer, however Bitmain’s Antminer L3++ ASIC miner shows the best results in terms of hash rate power.
