A HNS wallet address is required for you to receive and monitor your mining revenue.

Mining revenue is distributed daily to every user that reaches the payout threshold. The payout threshold is 10 HNS and details about payout method, fees and threshold can be found here.

You need to get a wallet address if you don’t have one already. We recommend Namebase, Hotbit or Gate.

3. Configure your mining device

Your miner must be connected to one of the F2Pool pool servers listed below, and you must use a mining account registered on F2Pool for your hashrate and revenue to be recorded and monitored.

You are required to enter the following information on your mining device:

  • URL: stratum+tcp://hns.f2pool.com:6000

Please note:

  • The F2Pool mining pool server can be found here, and also in the table below. Please use a mining pool server closest to your mining operation for better connection and lower latency. 
  • Your Username should be your HNS wallet address.
  • workerName is optional, however, we recommend connecting each mining device with a separate workerName for efficient monitoring.
