For Support use the Discord invite: Discord
, but first see the Help->Support
page in the menu on the right.
Click on the Login/Register link to register a username to mine with.
No password is required in your miner, so just use X for your password in your miner, since most miners need you to enter a password.
Don't leave the miner password blank and don't use your account login password.
All miner configuration information shown is the same for both PPLNS and Solo mining.
e.g. if your miner has a web page, you would fill it in similar to this with your username instead of Kano:
Your miner worker name can end with whatever you choose and will be automatically created when your miner connects to the pool.
It must be: your registered username, followed by a dot '.' or an underscore '_', followed by a worker name.
The example miner setup above will connect your miner to the mining servers in West-USA.
See the Miner Setup details on the Help->Support page for more details
about setting up your miner and of all the mining servers available near to you.
Never use Tor to mine, it will dramatically increase the chance of losing blocks.
Only use firmware provided by the miner manufacturer.
Don't point CPU or GPU miners at the pool.
Don't point rental miners at the PPLNS pool. It's ok to use rentals on Solo.
The pool is configured to start you mining at 8190 difficulty.
The pool adjusts the per instance difficulty to maintain a share rate of approximately 18 shares per minute.
However, there is a lower limit set on the difficulty of 442.
