Step 1: Litecoin LTC Bitcoin mhash per second mining This guide will show you how to get started with Litecoin GPU mining. If anything is unclear in this guide please leave a comment about it.
You’ll want to start with pooled mining as solo mining is not very viable anymore. The difficulty of the network is too high to effectively solo mine with a single computer. It’ll take a very long time to get a single block of 50 LTC. I suggest you skip to step 2 for pooled mining. If you want to solo-mine you’ll need to have the litecon client installed and configured. You can download the litecoin client here, if you are running windows look for the latest litecoin-x.
After you installed the litecoin client it will have to catch up with the network first before you can start mining as you can see in the image below. Now you should get this pop-up as you’re trying to change the extension of a . In Windows XP this menu should be visible without pressing ALT. You should change the username and password for safety, even though you’re only allowing the localhost here trojans and mallware ect. Step 2: Ltc mining software, cgminer and guiminer-scrypt Currently I advice you to use cgminer as guiminer-scrypt is still very unstable.
