Disclosure: Mining equipment metrics are calculated based on a network hash rate of 26,796 GH/s and using a LTC - USD exchange rate of 1 LTC = $ 48.44. These figures vary based on the total network hash rate and on the LTC to USD conversion rate. Equipment cost can vary, block reward is fixed at 25 LTC and future block reward reductions are not taken into account. The electricity price used in generating these metrics is $ 0.12 per kWh.
