I recently saw that the hashing power of Ethereum is way larger then the hashing power of Litecoin. As far as I know both are GPU mined. Correct me if I'm wrong, then I take everything back Smiley. So my statement:

Just one mining-pool of Ethereum can easily destroy Litecoin. So why does Litecoin have any value associated with it at the moment?

Let me correct that for you. Ethereum's hashing power is a little bit lower than Litecoin's. The reason for that is that Litecoin uses Scrypt algorithm, which isn't the same as ETH (which uses Keccak or SHA3 and the POW is Ethash). To put things into a little perspective: Litecoin's Scrypt algorithm is about 1000X more difficult to do (more memory intensive) than SHA256D; the Bitcoin POW. So basically 1TH of Bitcoin mining will only translate to about 1Ghz of Litecoin mining within the same chip power.

If you would like to test it out yourself, I suggest you take your Ethereum Mining rig and try to get it to mine some Litecoins. You will understand my point very quickly since your GPUs will literally be mining dust if you try to mine Litecoin with it.

I suspect the reason why no one has answered you is because this is actually pretty common knowledge and they have far better things to do than me

thx I've not done so much research on Litecoin so far, because I was not interested. But why you compare GPU mined coins with ASIC mined coins and not Litecoin with Ethereum. You compare Bitcoin THz with Litecoin GHz why not compare Ethereum THz with Litecoin?

Because they are for different algorithms. If everyone in the world with an ETH mining rig switched over to mine Litecoin right now, the power of all their machines together would not even reach 25% hash power for Scrypt. This is why it is not economically viable to mine Litecoin with GPUs.

If it was, everyone would be doing it, including me, but it isn't.

You mean Litecoin is not GPU mined? What do people use to mine Litecoin? CPU, Asics, RAM?

Also I succeeded to raise the number of Litecoins in my basket. It was nice but totally unexpected how people deal with precious coins. Litecoin's rally will start once we see some stability in Bitcoin. Alos so many things like lightening network is coming of which these two will be benefited. My focus is shifted to Litecoin from other tokens in preparation to long run.

Its ok, we were all noobs once. Do some research in the language you prefer. Litecoin mining is pretty much the same as Bitcoin mining now

First the bottom of the LTC was 0.006, the next was 0.003, and now it seems that 0.0015

Litecoin is one of the oldest cryptocurrencies out there. The user base is bigger than a lot of other coin out there. This can be seen from the current rank at 6th on coinmarketcap. I think Charlie Lee have something huge planned out for this project. So at current price it is a great buy.

Maybe let us wait for these new coins heavy correction and old reliable coins like Litecoin will start owning volumes once again.

By maintaining full compatibility with the Bitcoin API, Litecoin is very easy to integrate into existing applications that already offer Bitcoin support. One of the main advantages offered by the Litecoin network is faster transaction confirmation, making it ideal for small-size purchases.

If you are a developer using Bitcoin, it is extremely easy to enable support for Litecoin transactions.

If you are a merchant, you can easily integrate Litecoin into your web site or application using existing 3rd party shopping cart plugins.

If your business already supports Litecoin, you can register it to be included in this site's index.
