Some of you may have noticed that bitcoinwisdom.com hasn’t been updated in a while - the last dates on the graphs are August 6th. In order to continue with what I think is a valuable dataset, I’ve implemented most of the data-pages (market stuff is in the works, but it’s going to take a while as there’s quite a bit of infrastructure to get in place first).
If you go to http://ltcwisdom.net/ you’ll see the main page showing the expected difficulty based on the trajectory of the difficulty over time. You can also see the hash-rates over different average periods, and their relative position is another indicator for where the difficulty is going to end up. Finally, there’s a plot of the hash-rates themselves, and an indication of the spread over time.
At the top, the menu also lets you play with the calculator, which uses a fixed-difficulty per period since this fits the real-world data much better than a percentage-increase-per-period (the calculator averages the last 8 weeks to get the default value it uses), with optional fields for costs, pool gain-percentage (where some pools actually return much more than the native LTC mining would, for example), and any increase in LTC value that you want to postulate.
