workerName is optional, but we recommend labeling each of your mining devices with a separate
workerName for more efficient monitoring.
4. Add payout address
You’ll need to register a payout address to collect your mining revenue. You can add or change your payout address in your Payout Settings. f2pool distributes mining revenues on a daily basis to every user who reaches the payout threshold, which is 100 CKB. Details about our payout method and fees can be found here.
If you do not yet have a Nervos address, you’ll need to get one. We recommend Cobo Wallet or Bixin Wallet. You can also choose an exchange, such as Binance or OKex. Note: You should always do your own due diligence when choosing a wallet provider or exchange.
