Hash rate: MH/s kH/s Network Difficulty: LTC price: BTC USD EUR GBP RUB CNY Power usage: W Energy cost: USD/kWh See the Wiki for a list of hash rates and powerFrequently Asked Questions How precise is this data? Hash rate estimates are based on the rate at which blocks are solved, so the precision is relatively low. Errors of a few GH/s should be regarded as normal. (Standard deviation for the total hash rate estimate above: 57 GH/s.) Isn t there a more precise way to tell the speed of known pools? We could use the data provided by the pools themselves, but there would be no way to verify its correctness. Moreover, not all pools provide this kind of data. Why does the time frame vary? In order to make the precision constant, we base our statistics on a fixed number of blocks. The amount of time it takes to find these blocks is not fixed, but can vary significantly depending on the total network hash rate. How much of the hashing power is currently doing merged mining? About 1229 GH/s, or 96.8% of the network. How can I get my pool listed?

Litecoin is an open source, global payment network that is fully decentralized without any central authorities. Mathematics secures the network and empowers individuals to control their own finances. Litecoin features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency than the leading math-based currency. With substantial industry support, trade volume and liquidity, Litecoin is a proven medium of commerce complementary to Bitcoin. Open Source Software Litecoin is an open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license which gives you the power to run, modify, and copy the software and to distribute, at your option, modified copies of the software. The software is released in a transparent process that allows for independent verification of binaries and their corresponding sourceI came across Litecoin eventually when looking for useful GPGPU tasks that people would use themselves rather than relying on synthetic benchmarks. My first choice was the more popular Bitcoin mining, and I started using it in our reviews. I really wish I would have done this sooner, because after being introduced, I was hooked on bit mining and CryptoCurrency in general.
As you may have seen in our review of the Sapphire Radeon 7870XT, I commented that the days of the GPU being useful for Bitcoin mining were numbered. as more people mine, and specialized hardware hits the market, mining difficulty increases.
So where a 400 M/hash card could make about ฿0.07 BTC per day last January when the difficulty was around 3,000,000, you are now looking at about ฿0.03 generated instead. Using today’s exchange rate, that’s going from $221 USD a month in income, to $97.70. It will only go down from there, and depending on how much you pay for energy, will eventually not be profitable at all. WhenI don t know if there exists a service to quickly check what your mining hash rate is for Litecoin as the following does for Bitcoin I m looking for something that doesn t require to install or configure anything, or if necessary to do so with the less possible fuss.
Any ideas? You can go to and see the hashrate corresponding to the equipment you have, assuming you know what is inside your computer.
Actual results may vary, but usually this is a good estimate. Of course, if you overclock, you will get better hashrates, at the cost of increased power usage. If you want to actually mine, you will need to register at a mining pool and configure your miner to log in to said pool. The website you linked uses Java code to test hashrates, and this will not give accurate results (even for Bitcoin), as Java is usually slower than machine language.
So the Java test is useless to test actual mining rates, and nothing beatsBelow are some statistics about the mining performance of various hardware used in a mining rig. The columns are sortable to help with your comparison.
Add your own hardware results by filling out this simple form: DO NOT add nonexistent hardware or future projects. Notes: kH/s or kHps or kHash/s = kilohashes per second or the total hashing speed of all cores on the CPU or GPU. Unless otherwise stated, Clock , Core and Memory are in MHz. Voltage: listed beside the voltage is the status of firmware or hardware voltage locking. Y = locked, N = not locked, U = unlocked by firmware modification, ? = no information available. C = core clock, M = memory clock, V = voltage, W = watts For new data that hasn t been filtered, you can check out the raw data page. cgminer is the simplest and most effective miner to use. While GUIMiner-scrypt adds a GUI on top of cgminer, it s not the best method since it can be slower or cause mining issues without anyLitecoin Difficulty: 46,454 Estimated Next Difficulty: 44,710 (-3.76%) Adjust time: After 1656 Blocks, About 3.0 days Hashrate(?): 1,258 GH/s Block Generation Time(?): 1 block: 2.6 minutes 12 blocks: 31.0 minutes 24 blocks: 1.0 hours If grey line less than blue line, The generation time is decreasing. The more grey line is lower than blue line, the faster generation time is decreasing.
After 2016 blocks generated, Litecoin will adjust difficulty to estimated difficulty in order to keep the block generation time at 150.
