First things first, DOWNLOAD and install the latest version of the LiteCoin wallet! Grab it from the official site AND ONLY! Link -->    We repeat: AVOID online wallets, exchanges, hell, even pools to store your coins! ALWAYS HAVE YOUR COINS in your wallet, and make sure you backup your wallet as well!! Grabbed the wallet? Installed? Awesome =D Now run it, let it sync(it could take several hours to do the first sync, dont worry) and find your unique LiteCoin address in the Receive tab! It should be something like this:  Copy and paste your address somewhere, preferably with the copy address button! We are going to need in abit later    Lets move to step 2! You will need some descent GPUs to mine LiteCoins. In theory, you could mine with CPUs as well(heck, you could even mine with your mobile phone) but its highly NOT recommended. The difficulty now is SO HIGH and your hashrate will be SO LOW that you will end up burning electricity for nothing. While both AMD and NVIDIA cards can mine litecoins, we highly suggest AMD, since they mine faster. LOT faster. Our two personal favourites are the GigaByte 7950 card and the HIS 7950 ones, but literally any model/brand will do the job. Got the cards? Great! Lets go to step 3! VERY IMPORTANT!! Many people skip this 3rd step, and they end up having extremely bad results...   So, here we go, with bold letters.    AND Link for AMD Catalyst 13.1 is here--->   and for AMD APP SDK v2.8 is here-->. If for any reason the links go offline, just google them and grab them from there. Install first the AMD Catalyst drivers, reboot, install the AMD SDK 2.8, reboot again. You are set. On our way to step 4! Drivers installed, well done! Now we must create an account on the pool we want to use. For this example, we will use our pool, . Sit down tight, this may take few minutes! First of all, we visit the pools' page. You should see smth like this   That will do you in case you have one pc. In case you have more than one, you can create multiple workers, one for each PC, or you could point them all to the same worker, wont make any real difference. usually people set one miner account per PC because it makes monitoring easier! Lets move to the next step! To actually mine LiteCoins, we need a mining software. At the moment, there are two that we could use. CGMiner and GUIminer. With simple words we could say GUIminer is cgminer with graphics, and cgminer is abit more"advanced" than GUIminer. More experienced users prefer cgminer while less experienced ones go for the GUIminer. We will cover both, so you can make your own choice Before we proceed though, go to Getting Started-->New user info and you should see this screen with the pools' current mining servers. Make sure to check all the time this page, among with site news since more and more servers are been added! For our example, we will use the first one, (this is an old server now, and not used anymore! Now we will use stratum+tcp://global.wemineltc.com:3334 instead, which you will find in the getting started page !) First of all, be aware that GUIminer was originally developed to mine BITCOINS, and not LITECOINS. What we will actually work with to mine litecoins is called. Thats the one you need!The original GUIminer mine litecoins! Ok, since we got that clear, lets start!At first, we need to download latest version. You can find latest version here --> Download and extract somewhere(for example, your desktop). You will end up with something like this: Locate guiminer.exe and run it. GUIminer will run, and will give you some fields to complete. In host, we put the server we chose WITHOUT HTTPS or tcp://  or port. So we will put global.wemineltc.comin Port we will put 3334, in username field we put our workers name(in our example, Tutorial.1) and the password we created for it( in our case, 1234). We make sure that the stratum box is ALWAYS on YES and we can select from some pre-defined settings for our GPUs! In our case, our miner has 2x GigaByte 7950 cards, so we selected that one, and it fills all the other fields like thread concurrency,worksize, vectors etc automatically.So we end up to something like this: If you cannot see your card there listed, you can check the mining comparison wiki for litecoin and grab the settings for your cards here -->  Thats it! Hit Start, wait few seconds and you should see in awhile GUIminer counting shares. Congratulations, you are mining litecoins! for the most experienced users, and the ones that want some more"flexibility" and stats, cgminer is the key! It may look abit more"complicated, but it really isnt that much when someone explains you what on Earth it is, and how to use it! So lets start!  Author has deleted all the windows binaries from his server! I have uploaded the 3.5 windows version of cgminer on megaupload for you here -->  Alternatively, you can download it here -->  Save to desktop, and extract.Navigate in the folder, right click and create a new text document.In the first two lines, paste those commands:And after that, this:cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://global.wemineltc.com:3334 -u Tutorial.1 -p 1234 --thread-concurrency 24000 --lookup-gap 0 --gpu-engine 1100 --gpu-memclock 1250 --gpu-powertune 20 -w 256 -I 19 -g 1After you write that, click Save As--> from the save as type select and name it My Miner Reason we name it with a .bat extension, is to make it executable and run cgminer with the parameters we wrote. Actually what we did here, is we give cgminer the command to run, in scrypt mode(thats the one litecoin uses), to connect in the server we said we would use(stratum+tcp://stratum2.wemineltc.com:3335) , following by some parameters, like our username (-u), our miners password (-p), the thread concurrency of our cards, the look-gap command, where we want the gpu engine to run, where its memory clock, if we want to use the powertune option and how much, the workload(w), the Intensity of the card(I) and the number of threads per gpu(g). Those are the best settings that worked for us, for our GigaByte 7950s. You should find your own settings, again from the awesome guide over the litecoin hardware comparison wiki here -->    !Thats it! Double click the My Miner.bat and you are mining litecoins!For any feedback/suggestions/help, remember we also have a dedicated forum at plus you can always get a hold of us in our chat here--> !Happy mining and welcome aboard!

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin is an open source, global payment network that is fully decentralized without any central authorities. Mathematics secures the network and empowers individuals to control their own finances. Litecoin features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency than the leading math-based currency. With substantial industry support, trade volume and liquidity, Litecoin is a proven medium of commerce complementary to Bitcoin.
