Litecoin/scrypt Mining for Nvidia GPUs


Recommended Posts

First off I'd like to say that mining litecoins or scrypt based coins on Nvidia GPUs is very inefficient and if you want to get in to mining it is always advised to buy AMD graphics cards for mining.

So, As I'm sure many of you have just heard of bitcoin/litecoin and their derivatives and the cryptocurrency community as a whole.

What is litecoin?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litecoin

"Litecoin (LTC) is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Inspired by and technically similar to Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin creation and transfer is based on an open source protocol and is not managed by any central authority. Litecoin is intended by its developers to improve upon Bitcoin, offering several key differences. As of November 2013, Litecoin had received extended coverage by mainstream media with agencies such as the Wall Street Journal, CNBC and New York times citing it as an alternative (or possibly even successor) to Bitcoin.As of December 10, 2013, 1 LTC is worth approximately $35 USD on major exchanges such as BTC-E. Litecoin is the second largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of around $800 million USD; roughly one 14th that of Bitcoin. Like Bitcoin, Litecoin prices are volatile and unstable, often experiencing rapid price swings such as 40% in a day, or 1,000% in a monthLike Bitcoin, each Litecoin is subdivided into 100,000,000 smaller units, defined by eight decimal places."

Okay cool! How do I start?

  • Download the appropriate wallet. In this case we'll be using Dogecoin. http://dogecoin.com/

  • Join a pool: Here are a list of different Dogecoin pools

  • Download CUDA Manager

  • Create a worker on your pools website, it doesn't need to be secure any password and username will do, if someone else wants to mine for you, let them! In this tutorial I'll be using Multipool, although setup is similar on all pools

  • Launch CUDA Manager and configure your miner, most pools have the pool login info in the Getting Started section, this is how my miner looks like, yours should look similar.

And thats it! After all of those steps you should be mining dogecoin or whatever scrypt of your choosing. These steps can be followed to mine any scrypt based coin on Nvidia. I will be updating this guide periodically with pictures and updates.

Feel free to PM me if you have any issues or would like some help setting up your miners.

My current miner with a 780 ti is running at 600KH/s

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
