How to get started?

To start using Litecoin, you need to use the online wallet or download purse on your computer. If you decide to download the software on your computer, then keep in mind that if you forget your password, you will not be able to restore it.

But there is a more convenient option – to use an online wallet. Using this method, you can log in from any device and from anywhere in the world where there is the Internet. Therefore, online wallets are more popular.

4 ways to earn Litecoin

1. Mining

Litecoin appears to be the same as Bitcoin. Miners use computing power to generate new coins. They install a special program on the computer that turns it into a tool for getting money. The computer begins to solve the problem of the selection of the correct combination. And if your computer power will solve the problem, you will get a reward of 25 coins.

But mining Litecoin on the computer alone is not profitable. The chance that your computer solves the problem is negligible because mining involves a considerable amount of computing power.

Therefore, the miners join pools. If one of the participants in the pool solves the problem, then the reward is distributed among all participants.

2. Cloud mining

In cloud mining, you do not need the equipment, and computing power to generate Litecoin.

3. Litecoin faucets

You can get cryptocurrency with the help of faucets. Litecoin faucets are sites where you will earn some money by entering a captcha. The earnings are minimal. If you sit all day on the faucets, you can receive only $1-2.Litecoin faucets owners are trying to cover website advertising. They rely on the fact that someone will click on ads during typing captcha. The owner gets the money for every click on the ads.

4. Earnings

It is possible to earn Litecoin on the Internet, like any other currency. You can obtain this cryptocurrency for completing tasks, providing services, selling goods, etc.

How to earn on Litecoin?
