Coinotron is approaching 51% of the total LTC network hashrate. I ask that you all kindly LEAVE coinotron for the time being as the pool operator seems to be incompetent to solve this issue. As most of you are probably holding on to at least some LTC, it is for your own sake that you should leave coinotron, avoid the possibility of a 51% attack and the devaluation of your Litecoins.

In response to the current coinotron situation, I have set up a "ASIC" friendly pool. at http://www.hashharder.com/scrypt/litecoin-asic

The share difficultiies are set to handle much higher amounts, so please do not mine here unless you have a high hashrate.

If I can get people to use this service, I will reduce the fees on the page.

Also, the site doesn't require registration - and it doesn't keep the coins. It pays out on block maturity direct to the miner's address.

Mining is as simple as pointing your miner at

Code:
stratum+tcp://www.hashharder.com:9910 -u <Litecoin Address> -p Anything

The stats and payouts are available on the website.

Looks like enough miners moved to lower the hashrate at coinotron to 43% currently: https://www.litecoinpool.org/pools

I see on Reddit that some LTC people are moving to Peercoin because of the 51% risk and ASIC mining issues.

I haven't looked into Peercoin much, but they claim security against 51% because of their proof of work / proof of stake approach whereby you would have to hold 51% of the coins not mining power to threaten the currency.

Anyone experienced in Peercoin?

I'd like to see which "people" are claiming this......I havent seen one post about it and if it is, they are peercoin folks spreading FUD.



FYI coinotron shed a ton of GH from the network today.
