F2Pool Mining Guide – Kadena (KDA)

About Kadena (KDA)

The Kadena (KDA) mining algorithm is Blake2S, which supports GPU and FPGA mining. Both Nvidia and AMD GPU cards can be used to mine KDA.

1.  Obtain suitable hardware

✓ KDA can be efficiently mined with GPU  (both Nvidia and AMD) and FPGA equipment
✗ KDA cannot be efficiently mined with ASIC or CPU equipment

2.  Obtain a wallet address

A KDA wallet address can be obtained with the official full node: Download Link
Download and install the full node, and click “Receive” after installation to get the wallet address.
Note: Only macOS is supported.

3.  Obtain mining software

KDA mining software can be obtained in two ways:
✓ F2Pool version (Nvidia): Link 1, Link 2
Note: The F2Pool version has created a batch file for miners. The default mining pool is F2Pool.
✓ The original version of GMiner (Nvidia): Download Link
If you use the original mining software, you need to create your own batch file. Please refer to the following tutorial to set it up.

4. Configure your mining device

4.1 GMiner
Download the mining software and unzip the files. Right-click on “start.bat” and click “Edit”.

KDA mining
miner.exe –algo blake2s–server kda.f2pool.com:5400 –user wallet_address.worker_name
KDA & ETH dual mining
miner –algo eth+kda –server eth.f2pool.com:6688 –user username.worker_name –dserver kda.f2pool.com:5400 –duser wallet_address.worker_name

If you are using the F2Pool version of the mining software, simply replace the wallet address and worker name.
The worker name is a name assigned to your mining machine, which can be a letter or number and separated from the wallet address by a period “.”.
If you are using the original version or the mining software, please create your own batch file by using the above commands.
Once you have configured the above information, please save.

5. Start mining!

Your miners are now ready to start mining. From “Address Search” on the F2Pool homepage, select KDA (Kadena) and insert your wallet address to monitor hashrate, revenue, and payouts.
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.
