You can add or change your payout address in your Payout Settings. f2pool distributes mining rewards on a daily basis to every user who reaches the payout threshold, which is 1 BEL. Details about our payout method and fees can be found here.

    If you do not yet have a Bells address, you will need to get one. Currently, you could use the full node wallet to generate an address to receive your payouts, referring to the steps. Note: You should always do your own due diligence when choosing a wallet provider or exchange.
