How Litecoin and Dogecoin Created One of the Most Robust PoW Network’s | Litecoin Foundation
In a Reddit Merged Mining AMA with the Dogecoin community, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee described Doge’s rapid distribution in the following way….As Litecoin’s hash rate continued to increase, Dogecoin’s network became more vulnerable by the day….Throughout this phase, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee contributed to the discussion by explaining to the Dogecoin community the benefits and negatives of merged mining with Litecoin….With Dogecoin hardforking and allowing merged mining, Litecoin miners (who after all, shared the same mining algorithm as Dogecoin’s), would be incentivized to protect Dogecoin’s network by mining LTC + DOGE simultaneously….At first, Litecoin offered a helping hand in securing Dogecoin’s network via merged mining — saying that, there could become a reality in which through Dogecoin’s constant inflation and continuous mining, miners could later return the favor by helping secure Litecoin’s network as it transitions into a fee-based system….Litecoin miners who decide to merge mine with Dogecoin are essentially receiving “extra gravy” on top of their mined Litecoin’s.
