Shallot has previously made a full resumption of the halving of the Litecoin, including the currency price trend, the impact on the miners, etc., please poke "countdown 3 hours! Write the last words before the 5% of the Litecoin .
After halving, 30% of the mainstream miners will be shut down?
Today, the founder of the F2Pool fish pond, Weishen, said before the halving that the current Litek currency price, if the mining revenue tonight is halved, the Litecoin L3+ mining machine (L3+ is the current mainstream mining machine of Litecoin) Can declare a shutdown.
In the interview with the block rhythm, Shenyu made a detailed analysis of the impact of the Litecoin halving on the miners:
1. At present, the mainstream mining machine of LTC is the ant's L3+ series, including L3+ and L3++. Therefore , if the output is halved, the mainstream mining machine will have a great impact. It is expected that 20%-30% of the mainstream mine opportunities will be shut down ;
2. The miner should calculate the cost and pay attention to the price to make the cash. After about half a day of production cut, the difficulty of mining is over, and the cost and benefits of the miners will have clear results. The miners can clearly see if the L3+ can still be dug. During this period, some miners should choose to wait and see, and wait until the results are clear before making a decision;
He further added that, considering all the electricity costs, the electricity bill can now be calculated at an average of 0.26 yuan. The ant's L3+ model LTC mining machine accounts for about 51% of the electricity bill. If the output is halved, the reward for the excavated coins is basically The top is to pay the electricity bill.
However, from the current price of Litecoin, the mine is not shut down or there is still a distance, and it will not shut down immediately.
Litecoin next battlefield: privacy and substitutability
Market confidence has been shaken in the days when Litecoin is about to halve. But Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, said everything will return to normal.
Ambcrypto reported that in a recent interview, Li Qiwei pointed out that “it is possible that some miners (because of the halving incident) turned off their machines. But after a few days, the difficulty of mining will be re-adjusted and everything will return to normal.”
In general, Li Qiwei believes that “half will happen and there will be no mistakes.” In addition, he stressed that Litecoin needs to be more substitutable and privatized in order to “make money”. To achieve this goal, the company is studying the idea of using "Mimblewimble as an extension of Litecoin." Mimblewimble achieves privacy without sacrificing scalability. Privacy and substitutability will be the next battleground. ”
Currently, the currency of the Mimblewimble privacy agreement mainly includes privacy notes such as Grin and Beam, and Grin and Beam have doubled the surge in the main online line this year.
