Kaspa is a blockchain that is applying blockDAG, and Proof-of-Work consensus. It implements the GHOSTDAG protocol and allows for secure operation while maintaining very high block rates. The project was publicly launched in late 2021, and started from block zero with no team allocations, presale, or premine, primarily being driven by the community.
The mining algorithm of Kaspa is kHeavyHash, supporting ASIC mining. In this mining guide, we will walk you through the settings and process of mining Kaspa at f2pool.
1. Obtain suitable hardware
✅ Kaspa can be efficiently mined with ASICs.

2. Sign up for an f2pool account
You will need to create an f2pool account before mining Kaspa. If you do not have one yet, please click here to register.
Setting an account name will be required for configuration. You are free to create multiple subaccounts to monitor your mining machines.
3. Configure mining software
For configuration, you could use a browser that accesses the IP address of your machine, or a batch management software. You will need to enter the following information into your mining device:
Password: Your choice, such as 123
account_name is provided in your Account Settings.
worker_name is optional, but we recommend labeling each of your mining devices with a separate
worker_name for more efficient monitoring.
3. To set the Pool/URL, if your miner’s hashrate is greater than 2 TH/s, use the port
1430 instead of 1400 for better performance. Additionally, more regional URLs are available in TCP or SSL format for your selection:
4. Add payout address
You will need to get a wallet address if you do not have one already. A Kaspa wallet address is required for you to receive your mining rewards.
You will need to get a payout address to collect your mining rewards. 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 100 KAS. f2pool’s payout scheme is 1% PPLNS.
