From the get go I am very new to litecoin and the blockchain so in need of a bit of advice or guidance. I have dabbled with bitcoin a little bit. Purchase two asics managed to get them mining. Tried it for around three months non-stop and of course did not do very well as you could imagine so I gave it up. Went back to just browsing and forgot all about Bitcoin and the Blockchain.
Now I find litecoin which does not have such a high price, I believe it's around 70 USD a coin, thought this would be much easier to mine. I downloaded the litecoin wallet, by the way I am running Linux Mint 17.2 Raphael. Got it installed and running.
Here is the real question can I run a Node as I am available 24/7 being retired and have three computers one running Linux and the other win 7 Ultimate. If possible I would like to run a node on Linux Mint, so that's the question can I install and run a node and is there any reward for doing so?
Ignorant to all of this so my apologies.
