While you should ensure that you are entering in the correct info for your mining pool of choice, the following are some examples to help you get familiar with the data you’ll be inputting.
Example 1 – Luxor
Example 2 – SiaMining
A breakdown of the examples
URL: the exact path you use for the particular pool. These are static, so feel free to type them exactly as you see them here if they match your region closely enough. For example, the SiaMining example shows us-east, but you may want to use us-west if that more closely matches your geographic location. See Mining Pool Links below for more info, and more options that may better suit where you live.
User: your Siacoin or Decred mining address goes here. You’ll notice a string of numbers and letters, which is the address itself. There’s also a period (.) towards the end, followed by a worker name. This is optional, and typically used by those who have multiple miners so they can identify each device independently.
Pass: x. For pools that use a wallet address, the password is ignored. Most users place an ‘x’ here, but any character will do.
Mining Pool Links
These pools are verified to work with the v1.1.0 firmware. If your unit is still on v1.0.0, you can only use Luxor and Siamining.
Luxor: https://mining.luxor.tech/setup (use the ‘Currencies’ dropdown to switch between Siacoin and Decred nodes)
F2pool: https://www.f2pool.com (use the dial to choose Siacoin or Decred)
Toastpool: http://toastpool.com (not currently able to mine Siacoin. This will be corrected in a future firmware update)
