Part 4 — Miner Configuration

4.1 MinerOS

For miners who is the first time using minerOs, please consider the tutorial first in: https://www.mineros.cn/index.php/zh/course/primary

Create the AION mining page, choose “F2Pool” and input your AION wallet address.

4.2 Easy miner

Obtain the software, install and start it, and go to the configuration page.

Worker name: A name given to your miner and for distinguishing, which can be numbers or letters;

Coin: Choose “AION”;

Wallet address: Input your wallet address to receive the mining revenue;

Pool: Choose “F2Pool”.

After the information is verified, click on the “Start Mining” button in the upper right corner to start mining.

4.3 Gminer

Download and unzip the software in the “start” file, as below:

Right click on the “start” file, choose “Edit”, and configure the parameters as below:

miner.exe –algo 210_9 –server aion.f2pool.com –port 6677 –user wallet_address.worker_name

If using F2Pool version software, miners only need to replace the wallet address and the worker name (a name given to your mining machine, which can be letters or numbers and separated by a dot “.”), then save the file and start mining. If using the original one, it is needed to create a batch file yourself by referring to the above command.

Part 5 — Monitoring mining machine status and revenue

To view the operational status and daily income of the mining machine, you can access the f2pool official website, click on the search bar in the upper right corner, and enter the wallet address to check.

You can also view the information through our f2pool app. From the login screen, select “Quick View” in the bottom right corner and enter your wallet address.

Please note: After you set up your miner, it may take a little time before your mining data will sync with the f2pool website and app.
