Thanks for the response coblee.  That seems to make a lot of sense.

you can even have web-based games that generate coins while you play

Speaking of that, are there any known implementations of a Javascript-based miner for litecoin?

Not yet, but I know someone's working on a Java based one.

Where can I see the specifics of what actually needs to be done to mine? If I had that, I might give a Javascript miner a shot.

The specifics are all in the code. Here's the scrypt algorithm:
https://github.com/coblee/litecoin/blob/master/src/scrypt.c

There may already be a javascript implementation of scrypt. If not, you will need to port that to javascript.

It's still better than <2KH/s per thread on my i7 2600K 4.7GHz... Well, I should probably blame Windows for that.

No should blame the miner, cause that cant be right. Im getting a just shy of 3KH/s per thread on a venerable Q6600, and thats on windows too.

I'm likely the person being talked about. I didn't find a JS implementation of sCrypt, but I did find a Java one -- since the methods are static you should be able to call it from JS. Couple that with JSMiner, and it shouldn't be too bad to get one working. Course, I say that and it's been about a week of work from me (in between classes and such) with nothing to show, although I do have a much deeper knowledge about the protocol/blockchains/etc. If you want to take a crack at it though, please do --

I downloaded the x64 version that about doubled the hashing speed.

So should around 2.7khash per tread on Intel Quad Core Q9650 64bit Win 7 be considered ok with the solutions people have come up with yet?

Yes, the miner sucks, but still it can do better on Linux than Windows. I have 2 threads per core thanks to HT, so there is 3.8-4.1kH/s per core.

By far the best fork i've seen!
I'll give this a shot.
Still good fundamentals and some improvement to bitcoin.

my linux version of minerd is getting about 3.5, but my windoz version on the same rig is getting 3.74.  do you have a better minerd for linux? if so where can I get it?

Compile your own copy of ArtForz's minerd, with the proper SSE/AVX flags for your CPU.

twobits' 64-bit AMD executable uses his custom compiled static libraries, if I remember correctly; so it may be hard to match the hashrate, even using your processor's CFLAGS on Linux.

One thing we need to solve here is consistent information.

We need a wiki and desperately.

Where can I get latest client ? What are other people getting on their CPUs ?

I know where to find this but a noob would not. We also need to make sure that LTC is not 51% etc.

Thank you !

Thanks guys..  i think the one I have is already compiled with the proper flags.  I thought someone may have done it better.

Is there somewhere I can download the blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat files as I cannot redownload the whole thing again on my slow netbook. Thank you.

Coblee, some others might also like the above so maybe consider doing regular snapshots of this etc.

Run your netbook with -addnode=(ip of your main computer) and it'll go in a couple of minutes.

OK that went pretty fast. Hope LTC makes it. I am no longer a subject of King RealScam and his various taxes and wallet deletions. ScamCoin deserves to die now. Way to go LTC !

Funny that the AMDFam10 miner is faster on i7 too LOL.

Is there litecoin faucet and blockexplorer ?

It wasn't that long ago when you were calling me a Japanese scammer. Smiley

There's no faucet because I don't believe the faucet really does much good. It's just another way for people to get free coins.
Here are 2 block explorers:

Thanks BTCLot. I will be there! If you lose litecoins to me, think of it as a donation to the project. Smiley

This may be the first REAL use of litecoins for most people!
