Litecoin Difficulty - Crypto Mining Blog
All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies Litecoin (LTC) Hashrate Analysis Post Halving Charlie Lee, the creator of of the popular alternative crypto currency Litecoin, has posted on Reddit a short and interesting analysis on why a few weeks after the first block reward halving the difficulty and price of LTC has returned to the level it was prior to the event. Below you can find his post quoted: After the halving one would expect that either the price will go up or the hashrate must drop. This is because mining is designed with a Nash equilibrium of miner profit reaching 0 over time. So if miners are running at near 0 profit, and suddenly their revenue gets cut in half, miners would need to turn off their machines unless they are willing to mine at a loss. The halving happened, and the price stayed the same. The hashrate dropped a little but then climbed back up pretty quickly to the previous level. Thats really unexpected, but I think I have an explanation. I talked to some Chineses miners at Scaling Bitcoin and learned something interesting. Most miners have found electricity for free or close to 0 cost. Chinese hydro power plants are sometimes generating too much electricity. That electricity goes to waste if its unused. So these plants have either sold the electricity for near 0-cost or they have partnered with miners to give them free electricity for a revenue share. So this makes total sense now. If the electricity is free or close to 0 cost, then theres no reason for miners to shut down their machines. They make half as much, but still profitable. These miners have also been asking around at the conference to try to buy old outdated Bitcoin/Litecoin ASICs. With 0-cost electricity, they can keep those machines running and stil Continue reading >>
Mining Litecoin 2018 | Complete Guide To Mining Litecoin
Litecoin is a cryptocurrency that uses an algorithm known asScrypt. Litecoin is convenient as it can handle big numbers of transactions because of its fast block generation. Litecoin mining is the process of doing mathematical calculations with computer hardware, for confirming transactions. As a miner, you need to gather transaction fees, confirm them and be awarded Litecoins for each block that you verify. If you are interested in mining Litecoin then you are in the right place. Do you want to know how to mine Litecoin? Well, here are some methods of Litecoin mining with their pros and cons. If you dont want to spend a lot of money on equipment, but youre very much interested in Litecoin mining then cloud mining is a good solution for you. Cloud mining services rent out their facilities. It is a good alternative for minimizing costs as a miner (cheap electricity, low fees) and for being more productive. Cloud mining rates for Scrypt algorithm miners is $7.50 per 1 MH/s, with a minimum hash rate of 1MH/s, maintenance fee $0.005 / 1 MH/s / 24 hours. As you see, mining Litecoin may be rather profitable and you can have a breakeven in around 100 days. The hardware costs vary depending on speed, to give you an idea about the current prices: Radeon HD 7990 speed 1100 KH/s, power 375 W, Price $600 Radeon HD 7970 speed 700 KH/s, power 250 W, Price $310 Radeon HD 7950 speed 600 KH/s, power 200 W, Price $255. When you do solo mining, you keep the rewards just to yourself. Currently, the award per block is 25 new Litecoins (the number is halved with every 840,000 blocks). The rewards might not be as sustainable as in case of pool mining and might be a bit more complicated to start with. Solo mining the costs are a lot higher and to have a better idea you should check out the sp Continue reading >>
Future Prediction Of Ltc Diff?
Hey guys so what are your thoughts on LTC difficulty in the upcoming months, I mean how much do you think it will rise in diff per month as it is on <150.000 now how about in 2 months? 300000+ by the end of July/August. Always hard to predict because some older ASICs might be retired, unless price continues upwards. My (slightly pessimistic) expectation is that itll be between 250,000 and 300,000 by the end of July, beginning of August. Im pretty sure the April batch of L3+'s has already been factored in, possibly the May batch, but I doubt the June batch has, and then theres July. Look at the graph, assuming 30,000 difficulty per batch, theres another 90,000 difficulty rise coming over the 3 months, so taking the next diff of 150k, that gives a 240k level. As I said, slightly pessimistic, it could be as low as 220k, but my gut feeling is that itll be higher rather than lower Boa Tarde - creio que ao decorrer e com a valorizao da moeda LTC - CREIO EU, que aumentara consideravelmente a dificuldade - como nas outras moedas digitais - tenho um amigo que me apresentou algumas moedas no ano de 20012 e custavam tao pouco que poderamos comprar varias - ai verifiquei hoje estao custando mais que 100 x mais.

Starting To Mine Litecoins With Antminer L3+ From September 2017. Questions!
Starting to mine Litecoins with Antminer L3+ from September 2017. Questions! Starting to mine Litecoins with Antminer L3+ from September/October 2017. Questions about profitability predictions from the day one, possible ROI and lifespan of L3+ mining. I'm new here and new on cryptocurrency overall, so I apologize if I cannot be clear enough with my first post or if my perception of what I'm writing is totally wrong. I want to make my first investment on bitcoins/altcoins mining, but before I do that, I would like to get some suggestions and clarifications from you guys whether it's worth it or not, or whether my calculations are a simple newbie mistakes. It took me like two weeks of reading almost every day in order to understand the business of mining in general. First thing I've noticed was that I'm too late for this shit. I know! But better late than never. Anyways! In a meantime I got some knowledge about network difficulty, hashrates, electricity cost, etc, in order to calculate the profit and have in mind on what to look for and where. During this time of research, Antminer S9 was the first hardware that caught my eye, but then I got somehow disappointed from mining bitcoins after I saw the estimate profit and the ROI timespan. Then I've found the Antminer L3+ as the most profitable miner compared to the other mining hardware. To be honest, I was surprised when I saw the possible earnings of almost 1 LTC per day ($35+ at current rate) with one Antminer L3+, making ROI for 45 days estimated. Too promising! After all researches and calculations I did during this period, I made up my mind to invest in Antminer L3+, but then there was one thing at the end that made me think twice and also write this post.

Litecoin Price Prediction 2018: Is Litecoin Potential Higher Than Current Counterparts?
Home Cryptocurrency Litecoin Litecoin Price Prediction 2018: Is Litecoin Potential Higher Than Current Counterparts? Litecoin Price Prediction 2018: Is Litecoin Potential Higher Than Current Counterparts? Gaurav S. Iyer, IFC Profit Confidential 2017-07-23T08:00:37Z 2017-12-08 09:39:23 litecoin price predictions litecoin news buy litecoin litecoin stock litecoin potential litecoin mining will litecoin go up is litecoin a good investment litecoin price history bitcoin segwit ethereum Litecoin has an immense amount of potential, which is why our Litecoin price predictions for 2018 range from $300 to $400, putting it on par with Ethereum. Litecoin [caption id="attachment_96488" align="alignleft" width="300"] Although Bitcoin looms larger in the public consciousness, Litecoin is more developed in some ways. For example, Litecoin survived the implementation of SegWit (Bitcoin hasnt...at least not yet). And to make matters worse, Litecoin mining pays 25 tokens for every block, while Bitcoin only pays 12.5.These differences look small at first, but they could have outsize effects on the Litecoin price predictions. Later in this report, well break down why SegWit is important, when Bitcoin might reach full activation, and whether the two can co-exist.But for now, let me put my cards on the table. Heres what I do not believe: I do not believe that Litecoins rise will crush Bitcoin. I do not believe that Bitcoin will crush Litecoin. I do not believe that either Bitcoin or Litecoin will crush Ethereum. I do not believe that Ethereum will crush Bitcoin or Litecoin. Or to be more specific, I dont think any of these things will happen in the next 12 months. Were a long way from a winner-takes-all fight in the cryptocurrency market.Right now, the industry is as sensitive as a newborn Continue reading >>
Litecoins Rise To $1000 Will Be Just The Beginning Of Cryptocurrencys Silversurfer
Litecoins rise to $1000 will be just the beginning of cryptocurrencys silversurfer If youve been following my $LTC trading analysis , you will know who I am. Back in April I noticed parabolic wormhole being formed in the fabric of the universe in which Litecoin, the silver to bitcoins gold more than doubled in value over the following 48hrs as it traversed through it. But its not that I noticed this wormhole which was so unique its that I charted it in such a rediculous a way which took me from pleb to senior pleb status overnight. You could say I have made charting parabolic moves into an art, literally. I have analysed many different coins but its when I come back to talking about Litecoin that I really get arize. So here we are today at the same LTC/BTC price of ~.01BTC as when this wormhole was created above. Since then, the price of Litecoin in terms of USD has gone from a high of $15 to the high in the last 24h of $150. A 10x gain over 8 months. What Im going to show to you today however is that this was this was merely a blip of growth compared to what is about to come. I see another quantum leap that will take Litecoin from.01BTC to somewhere around.25BTC which in todays terms brings LTC to around $3,750 each. I know that sounds crazy and even I have struggled to come to grips with it, but once you do the math and look at the following data, the penny will drop and LTC will make a push to at least.1BTC very, very quickly. I expect it will come sooner and more surprisingly than most will be ready for. Silver to Gold. The analogy that works for everything except priceratio. Litecoin is considered the Silver to Bitcoins Gold and it was created to make up for the shortcomings in Bitcoin. As BTC grew, Charlie Lee aka @satoshilite saw the shortcomings of Bitcoin. He Continue reading >>
What Is Litcoin (and How Is It Different From Bitcoin)?
What is Litcoin (And How is it Different From Bitcoin)? Litecoin is based on the original Bitcoin algorithm but with some key changes. The aim was to make a cryptocurrency that would be able to be mined by the average user without ASIC miners being introduced like happened in Bitcoin. In theory this should protect the difficulty growth of the currency and make it more appealing to miners. However, ASIC miners designed to mine Litecoin are available since 2015. Litecoin is considered by most as comparable to Silver where Bitcoin is Gold. As the currency grows in popularity more and more people are using it for gambling and currency trading just as happened when Bitcoin first went mainstream. Finding Litecoin exchanges is more difficult than finding Bitcoin ones. This might lead the internet community to use it more as a currency and less as an investment asset, unlike Bitcoin which has been used as an asset more than as a currency. Litecoin does not enjoy the same degree of acceptance as Bitcoin. This is one of the reasons why its value is significantly lower than that of Bitcoin. Assuming Litecoin reaches the same degree of acceptance than Bitcoin, all else equal, it is still expected to be significantly cheaper per unit. This is because the total amount of coins to be issued is 4 times greater than that of Bitcoin. This means that Litecoin may serve as some kind of Bitcoin continuation mechanism in the market once a maximum amount of Bitcoins has been mined, although this is not its desired goal. Litecoins algorithm is different than that of Bitcoin, to allow Bitcoin miners to mine both at the same time. Ultimately, Litecoins status as the second most popular cryptocurrency, offers a huge upside potential that Bitcoin can no longer offer. As Bitcoin gets increasingly Continue reading >>
I Can Not See A Reason Not To Mine Ltc - Please Help!
my thoughts are swirling around buying 3 antminer L3+ (or maybe wait for the next gen) and start to mine Scrypt based Coins, primarily LTC. ive found a good calculator and inserted my stats. look here Yeah, power costs are that much where i live. switzerland. eff-ing expensive over here. if you put the max. difficulty change it which is possible without !! (i could insert 230k / month) there is stil like 150 LTCs to make in 12 months. Lets say LTCs are 200$ in the end of 2018. And we all know: as we all are hopeless optimistics in terms of Cryptos, this is a very humble and conservative guesstimation! If there is 150 LTCs to make and every each is 200$ (at least!) in the end of 2018. Thats 30000$. if i would buy the same amount (150 LTCs) now, i had to invest around 7500$. On alibaba you get for less than that 3 Antminers Are you with me?? Or am i overseeing something verrrrryyy obvious and stupid? How much maintanance does a mining rig acutally need? i have no exp in mining at all. do i need to check the microfarm every day or is this easy done remote? how well are antminers working? i calculated that NOTHING at all is near as fast for the price. so yeah, maybe the miners are not the best quality. but i do not see the profit, when i have to buy 100 GPUs for like 400 bucks each im looking forward to hear your thoughts! something is not right with the link - i leave it anyway, maybe on your pc the stats are filled right. here a pic of my stats: Yes, thats right. But then you only own the 150ltc, fix. say, if there is a new cryptocurrency which makes the way to the top. start mining them! the amount of LTCs you own is growing day by day since the Antminers are chinese built, you can buy them on alibaba for cheap (and expensive. you have to dig thru the suppliers to find Continue reading >>

Litecoin From 11/1/17 To 5/1/18. What I'm Betting On Price/diff/accumulation.
Litecoin from 11/1/17 to 5/1/18. What I'm betting on Price/Diff/Accumulation. Last edit: November 02, 2017, 08:25:20 AM by Searing my strategy...ie I've mined LTC since Nov 2014...I currently have like 7500mh of scrypt pow miners on prohashing paying out in LTC. Like 99.99999% of everyone back in the day of easy diff and LTC I xfered most of it to BTC and/or expences/elec/equip thus LTC has not failed me...I failed LTC... to be fair, it would have been quite the long shot bet on keeping all the LTC and having faith it would pump from 1.80 in 2015 and 4.15 this year to over $50....but there you have it thus my strategy on BTC civil war/forsks is as follows....I assume (after expenses..knc titans going doorstop out of my hash, elec/rent/etc) that I may manage to get to 1,000 LTC again say by May 1st 2018 with current difficulty climbs. (this is pessmistic view...likely would get more) IF BTC continues to be at say 6-7k or above....I find it hard to believe LTC will not be at least $100 to $150 (again pessimstic) and/or $300 or more... IF BTC dumps with a so called NORMAL correction of 30% in price from say 6K .to 4K.than I also would see LTC acting in its historical manner and being $100 to $150 pessimistic....and/or $300 or so.... IF LTC does NOT pump above $100 bucks in the difficulty cycle above from now till say May 1st 2018.with either of the above.....than that means a BTC fork like Bitcoin Cash/and or other BTC forks have basically killed off scrypt pow alt coins and mining and thus LTC and other ALTS of any flavor are toast anyway...they have been replaced in adoption and use....and ALTS have faded......add pow scrypt difficulty to this and all mining of pow scrypt will die and we will go pow scrypt mining wise to the alt coin graveyard.....the gap in value would Continue reading >>

Expected Bitcoin Difficulty In 2018
There are lots of videos and articles on what Bitcoin difficulty is, and lots of charts on how it's changed over the past couple of years. But this isn't really helpful if you're thinking about investing in cloud mining, or maybe even buying your own mining rig. This guide has our thoughts on what will effect Bitcoin difficulty over 2018. We posted a guide on Genesis Mining profitability for September 2017, and in this we assumed that each time Bitcoin mining difficulty doubles - the value of it also doubles. This guide explains why. So let's start by looking at how Bitcoin difficulty has changed every 4 months for the past 3 years: *Values taken from: Looking at the Blockchain chart above for the past 2 years, it definitely looks exponential; e.g. it doubles at the same rate every 4 months. But the figures for the past 3 years don't do that. In 2015 it took around 11 months for the difficulty to double, in early 2016 around 6 months, in late 2016 around 8 months - and then in 2017 between 5-6 months. What we're suggesting is that the rate the Bitcoin difficulty is increasing is not fixed. Right now, in September 2017, Bitcoin is very popular, with thousands of new investors and miners every day. So a sudden increase in difficulty would seem to make sense - as there are lots more transactions being sent, and lots more people mining it. The drop in difficulty in August 2017 is a good identifier for this, where because lots of miners moved over to Bitcoin Cash (as it was more profitable at the time), transactions were taking longer to process - and so the difficulty was decreased. If you were a miner running a large setup, and Bitcoin mining were to no longer be profitable, then you'd likely start mining something else that was. This would decrease the difficulty for eve Continue reading >>
