Part 3 — Miner Configuration

T-rex

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

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

t-rex -a x16rv2 -o stratum+tcp://raven.f2pool.com:3636 -u wallet_address.worker_name -p x

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 4— 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.

Happy Mining 🐟
