2. Configure Your Device
Your miner has to be pointed to one of the stratum servers below and user credentials for your account have to be specified. We currently operate in the following regions: US east coast (us-east), Europe (eu), China mainland (cn), Singapore – South Asia (sg) and Japan – Pacific (jp).
The login credentials needed for your miner look like this: (please, fill your user ID and worker name)
URL: stratum+tcp://stratum.slushpool.com:3333 userID: userName.workerName password: anything
The password can be an arbitrary text since there is no security issue present here. If someone tried to connect to our servers with your credentials, he would be just mining for your benefit.
The servers can be chosen from the following list based on your geographical location:
USA, east coast
Singapore, South Asia
To collect your reward you have to set a payout address. If you don’t have an address, you need to get a bitcoin wallet first:
- Detailed step by step tutorial on how to setup a miner can be found in the Advanced Mining section.
- You can use one worker name for all your miners. However, we recommend to connect every miner to a separate worker for easier monitoring.
- Optionally, enable the Two-factor-authentication to protect you from arbitrary change of your wallet.
