We wanted to provide some information for you about the newest peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Yes, it’s completely open-source, and you can mine these little guys on your FPGA platform.
Educate yourself a “bit” before we go on:
- Litecoin facts, history, references, development, etc. – (Wikipedia)
- Official Litecoin forums – (Litecoin)
- Kramble FPGA Litecoin Miner – source code (Github)
I’m thinking I want to ask Jack how much work it would be to implement this on Papilio, but if any of you guys and gals have already accomplished this, or want to hack it in, and post to the GF forums, it would help to extend all of our savvy!
