F2Pool Mining Guide – XZC (Zcoin)

About Zcoin

Zcoin (XZC) completed a hard fork on December 10th at 12:00 UTC, switching the algorithm to MTP. It has a high ASIC resistant and can resist malware to control the computer mining. The ultimate goal is to achieve “equivalent calculation”, and make the power distribution more balanced.

Quick links:

1. Obtain suitable hardware

  • ✅ XZC can be efficiently mined with CPU or GPU cards.
  • ❌ XZC cannot be efficiently mined with ASIC mining machines.

2. Obtain wallet address

A XZC 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 0.1 XZC and details about payout method, fees and threshold can be found here.

If you do not have an address yet, you need to get a wallet first. We recommend  the official wallet.
