I started mining litecoins for fun, so this is really not a post on what the best way would be or how to get rich.
This post is more about what happens if you use “what is lying around”, so I installed “minerd” on my raspberry and banana Pi and also looked what phones are still in the desk and installed a mining software from the individual store.
In the last 5 days I managed to get
by using some devices, whereas the PIs have been running all time and additional Hardware has been switched on and off sometimes.
