How to mine with f2pool using NiceHash

NiceHash is a hashrate exchange platform where miners can purchase hashrate for different algorithms to mine via f2pool mining pools.

Hashrate purchased from NiceHash will be shown as a single mining machine after connecting to f2pool. With a standard configuration, f2pool will consider it a standard mining machine and delegate inappropriate mining tasks to it, which will result in a high rejection rate.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to configure your mining parameters to mine successfully using hashrate rented from NiceHash!
