EthereumPoW (ETHW) is an Ethereum fork and keeps using PoW consensus. For more information, please check out the official website.
1. Obtain suitable hardware
✅ EthereumPoW can be efficiently mined with GPU and ASIC mining machines.
❌ EthereumPoW cannot be efficiently mined with CPU cards.
View our Miners page to discover the most profitable devices for EthereumPoW mining.
2. Obtain a wallet address
You will need to get a wallet address if you do not have one already. An EthereumPoW wallet address is required for you to receive your mining rewards. f2pool distributes mining revenues on a daily basis to every user who reaches the payout threshold.
3. Sign up for an f2pool account
You will need to create an f2pool account before mining EthereucmPoW. If you do not have one yet, please click here to register.
Set an account name. This will be required for configuration. You are free to create multiple subaccounts to monitor your mining machines.
4. Configure mining software
Mine by GPUs
After you have downloaded your chosen mining software, uncompress it, find the
start.cmd file, right-click on it, and click
Replace the file’s existing commands with the commands from the chart below that correspond to your chosen mining software.
|NBMiner||nbminer -a ethash -o stratum+tcp://ethw.f2pool.com:6688 -u account_name.worker_name|
|GMiner||miner.exe –algo ethash –server ethw.f2pool.com:6688 –user account_name.worker_name|
|PhoenixMiner||PhoenixMiner.exe -epool ethw.f2pool.com:6688 -ewal account_name -worker worker_name -pass x|
|Bminer||bminer -uri ethstratum://firstname.lastname@example.org:6688|
|lolMiner||lolMiner.exe –algo ETHASH –pool ethw.f2pool.com:6688 –user account_name.worker_name|
account_name with your f2pool mining account name set in Step 2.
Finally, save the start file and exit. Double-click the start file when you’re ready to start mining.
Mine with ASICs
If you mine EthereumPoW with ASIC miners, no mining software is required to be run on your computer. All you need is the proper electricity setup to meet the power consumption requirements and a reliable internet connection.
Please note that your ASICs should have a wired connection to your local network and that your computer and your ASICs should be on the same network.
Use any modern browser that accesses the IP address of your machine, then connect to an f2pool server. You’ll need to enter the following information into your mining device:
Password: Enter a password of your choice
account_name with your f2pool mining account name set at Step 2.
A miner with the mining account name
oceanminer and a worker named
bigfish1 who wants to connect to the NA server would configure his device as follows:
stratum+tcp://ethw.f2pool.com:8008 can be used as a backup server URL.
