Scrypt Algorithm Scrypt Algorithm As a replacement for the well-known SHA-256 hash function used in Bitcoin, Litecoin first offered Scrypt as a hash function. Both the Litecoin and Bitcoin protocols, which use a proof-of-work consensus method, use these functions as mining algorithms.
How long does it take to mine one Litecoin block?
About 2.5 minutes 1 The average block mining time on Litecoin's blockchain is about 2.5 minutes.
What is the target block time for Litecoin?
The targeted block time is every 2.5 minutes for Litecoin, as opposed to Bitcoin's 10 minutes. This allows Litecoin to confirm transactions four times faster than Bitcoin. Scrypt, an alternative proof-of-work algorithm, is used for Litecoin.
What is the best rig to mine Litecoin?
ASIC Antminer L3+ What is the Best Litecoin Mining Rig? The ASIC Antminer L3+ is the best rig for mining because it has 288 BM1485 chips designed specifically for mining Scrypt coins. It also is more powerful than other hardware, making it better at solving the hash. It has a maximum hashrate of 504 MH/s and 800-watt power consumption.
What is the fastest mining algorithm?
CryptoNight is one of the fastest mining algorithms and part of the CryptoNote consensus protocol. CryptoNight is a PoW mining algorithm for CPU and GPU mining, designed to be ASIC-resistant to prevent the centralization of mining power.
