Top 6 Litecoin Mining Pools Signaling SegWit Support

Ever since the Litecoin developers released a new client to signal for SegWit activation, there has been a large focus on how this scenario will play out. As it turns out there are quite a few litecoin mining pools signaling SegWit right now, which explains how the scaling solution gets closer to activating. There is still a lot of work be done to push toward 75% network support, though.

6. Give Me Coins

Although Give Me Coins is one of the smaller litecoin mining pools – currently contributing 16 GH/s – they see a bright future ahead for Segregated Witness as part of the LTC ecosystem.  It is good to see smaller pools support this proposal as well. Every bit of hashrate will help with getting towards the 75% threshold that much quicker.

5. Coinotron

One of the first litecoin mining pools to signal SegWit activation goes by the name of Coinotron. This mining pool has been around for some time now, and they contribute 22 GH/s to the network. It is good to see the team support Segregated Witness, as they feel scaling litecoin will help the popular alternative cryptocurrency gain more mainstream traction moving forward. So far, the litecoin price has responded positively to the SegWit signaling support, that much is certain.

4. Le6oriAMKX

It has to be said, the Le6oriAMKX “pool” is quite an interesting one. It is difficult to find more information about this particular pool, although some Reddit users suggest this is just one miner who controls a lot of hardware. Keeping in mind how Le6oriAMKX represents 146 GH/s of hashing power, that would have to be one massive mining operation for sure.

3. LitecoinPool.org

LitecoinPool.org is one of the longest running litecoin mining pools in the business. Together with Coinotron, they were among the first few to signal SegWit support once the new litecoin client was made available by the developers. Litecoinpool controls 254 GH/s of mining power, making it the fifth largest litecoin pool on the network according to the latest statistics.

2. HappyChina

Interestingly enough, the HappyChina mining pool was announced as a new operation in March of 2017. According to the reddit thread, HappyChina managed to lure some miners away from F2Pool once the pool opened its doors to the public. Some users claim HappyChina used to be a solo miner before, yet one user replied how the “company” is buying additional Antminer L3 hardware to keep growing the HappyChina pool.

1. F2Pool

It took some time, but the largest litecoin mining pool has started signaling SegWit about a week ago. F2Pool is by far the “king of the hill” of litecoin mining pools, with its 896 GH/s of mining power. Ever since the pool started signaling SegWit, the overall network support for this scaling solution jumped to over 58%. Keeping in mind how SegWit requires 75% network support to activate – for litecoin – it appears to be only a matter of time until the change kicks in.
