The Litecoin market is growing, rising exchange rates. The digital currency Litecoin has experienced a meteoric rise in recent months.

Litecoin Mining Pool

As you know Litecoins are generated by CPU / GPU mining (check our guide here). In order to solve Litecoin algorithm, a huge amount of computational power is required. Since a block is awarded to single person, it is nearly impossible for a single person to achieve a block. Pooled mining allows a lot of different people contribute to generating a block, and the reward is then split among them according to their processing contribution. Litecoin mining pool works same as bitcoin mining pool. Following is the list of some of most famous and trustworthy pools with their reward type.

Reward Type *

  • Proportional - When a block is found, the reward is distributed among all workers proportionally to how many shares each of them has found.
  • PPLNS - Pay Per Last N Shares. Similar to proportional, but instead of looking at the number of shares in the round, instead looks at the last N shares, regardless of round boundaries.
  • PPS - Pay Per Share. Each submitted share is worth a certain amount of litecoins. It is risky for pool operators, hence the fee is highest.
  • RBPPS - Round-Based Pay Per Share. Like PPS, but payouts are delayed till a block is found and confirmed by the network. If a found block gets orphaned, earnings relative to it are not paid.
  • SMPPS - Shared Maximum Pay Per Share. Like PPS, but never pays more than the pool earns.
  • RSMPPS - Recent Shared Maximum Pay Per Share. Like SMPPS, but aims to prioritize the most recent miners.
