usb-dualminer-asic-on-ebay

The first Dualminer USB ASIC devices that can simultaneously mine Litecoins (LTC) and Bitcoins (BTC) and alternative crypto currencies based on scrypt and SHA-256 that we’ve already mentioned here have started appearing on eBay. These devices based on a single Gridchip GC3355 processor chip from Gridseed are rated as capable of: 500MH/s SHA-256 and 40KH/s Scrypt when operating for mining both, or 1.6GH/s when mining only BTC or 70KH/s when mining only LTC. Again, price wise these are not very interesting products, unless you want to be able to try the Gridseed chips and see how well they can perform. What would be more interesting are multiple-chip devices that offer significantly higher performance, but the good thing is that things are finally happening for Gridseed and we are actually seeing devices based on their innovative dual mining SHA-256 and Scrypt at the same time Gridchip GC3355 chips.

Here is a short list of the bigger and more popular crypto currency exchanges out there that trade with not only Bitcoin, but Litecoin as well as many other alternative cryptos. Some of these exchanges are trading only between different crypto coins for example BTC for LTC, or DOGE for BTC and you cannot buy with money in them – Cryptsy, but others also trade with real money and you can both deposit and withdraw in cash as well as in cryptocurrency – Mtgox. There are even exchanges that only serve to connect the traders – Local Bitcoins.

Worldwide:
Coinbase
Cryptsy
Bittrex
Vicurex
Kraken

Europe:

BitStamp
Bitcurex

Now, although most of these crypto exchanges are listed under different countries and just a few as worldwide, in almost all you can trade regardless of your location though for some there could be a language barrier if they were designed to serve only a local market and do not have an English version for example. The only more serious problem with some is the ability for you to withdraw cash from the exchange if it also operates with real money and not only trades with crypto coins. So do take some time and check them out and find which ones can be useful for your specific needs… there are of course more exchanges out there, so this is not a complete list, but more of a good starting point.

DOGE coin is on the rise again, after being one of the best alternative scrypt-based crypto currencies to mine instead of LTC a few weeks ago. If you are currently mining LTC directly, then you should reconsider and start mining DOGE coin and after that selling the DOGE for LTC. This way you will make much better profit than directly mining for LTC coins, at the moment directly mining DOGE coins and selling for LTC you can double your profit. Simply said by mining DOGE coins you can end up with twice the profit than directly mining LTC coins at this moment and the profitability may go even higher than that. So if you have GPUs mining for LTC switch them to mine DOGE for now.

The other good thing about mining DOGE coins and trading them for LTC is that the LTC difficulty will not rise as much and in fact may even drop a bit, so it will be easier to mine Litecoins if and when DOGE is not that profitable anymore to mine. So definitely a win-win situation – you get about double profit and will make LTC easier to mine in the feature.
