F2Pool Mining Guide – ZCASH


Zcash, abbreviated as: ZEC, is the first blockchain system to use a zero-knowledge proof mechanism, which provides complete payment confidentiality while still being able to use a public blockchain to maintain a decentralized network. It is like Bitcoin, the total number is 21 million, using Equihash algorithm, can now be mined by ASIC miners.

Quick links:

1. Obtain suitable hardware

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

View our Miners page to discover the most profitable ASIC machines for ZEC.

2. Obtain wallet address

A ZEC 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 ZEC 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 or Cobo Wallet. You can also use an exchange wallet such as Huobi.

3. Configure your mining device

Your miner must be connected to the F2Pool pool server listed below, and you must use a wallet address that can receive ZEC for your revenue to be recorded and monitored.

Please enter the following information on your mining device:

  • URL: stratum+tcp://zec.f2pool.com:3357
  • Username: walletAddress.workerName
  • Password: *anything*

Please note: workerName is optional, however, we recommend connecting each mining device with a separate workerName for efficient monitoring.

4. Start mining!

Your machines are ready to start mining. From “Address Search” on the F2Pool homepage, you can insert your wallet address and monitor your 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.
