Mining pool configuration

A mining pool can be defined in Awesome Miner and be used from multiple miners. To create a new mining pool, use the button New pool... in the toolbar. Pools can also be created from the Options dialog, Pools section, where they also can be modified and removed.

For more information on how to define a single pool in Awesome Miner and use it with unique worker names for multiple miners, please see the guide about Pool worker name configuration.

General examples

LitecoinPool Scrypt mining

Configuration according to the LitecoinPool web site.

stratum+tcp://litecoinpool.org:3333
Username:	your_username.1
Password:	1

The pool configuration is illustrated in Awesome Miner below.

litecoinpool scrypt

Nicehash X11 mining

Configuration according to the Nicehash web site.

stratum+tcp://x11.eu.nicehash.com:3336

For most algorithms (Ethereum and a few more are exceptions), Nicehash expects your Bitcoin wallet address to be specified as the username/worker name in the Pool configuration. Optionally a unique worker name can be specified after the Bitcoin wallet address.

Examples with Claymore Etheruem Dual miner

The examples below are for the Claymore Etheruem Dual miner. Please also refer to the Bitcointalk thread about Claymore Etheruem Dual miner, as it contains both a complete description of all parameters for the Claymore miner and many more examples similar to those listed below.

The pool configuration for Ethereum mining differs between the mining pools, making it a bit more difficult to configure correctly. It's important to follow the exact instructions on the pool web site about when the Worker name and Wallet address fields should be used.

Ethpool Ethereum mining

Configuration according to the Ethpool web site:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal <Your_Ethereum_Address>.<RigName> -epsw x

Ethpool Ethereum mining

Configuration according to the Ethpool web site:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal <Your_Ethereum_Address>.<RigName> -epsw x

-epool specifies the Ethereum pool URL.
-ewal specifies the Ethereum Wallet address.
-epsw specifies the Ethereum pool password. Can be left blank.

ethpool ethereum

Nanopool Ethereum mining

Configuration according to the Nanopool web site:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -ewal YOUR_ETH_ADDRESS/YOUR_WORKER_NAME/YOUR_EMAIL

-epool specifies the Ethereum pool URL.
-ewal specifies the Ethereum Wallet address, and in the case of Nanopool, also the worker name and e-mail address.

nanopool ethereum

Suprnova Ethereum + Decred mining

Configuration according to the Suprnova web site:

ethdcrminer64.exe -epool eth.suprnova.cc:5000 -ewal suprnova.1 -epsw x -esm 3 -dpool dcr.suprnova.cc:3252 -dwal suprnova.1 -dpsw x

-epool specifies the Ethereum pool URL.
-ewal specifies the Ethereum Wallet address. In the case of Suprnova, this is not the wallet address itself, but the worker name.
-epsw specifies the Ethereum pool password. Can be left blank.
-esm specifies the Ethereum Stratum Mode. This must be configured on the Claymore section as ESM as in the second screenshot below

suprnova ethereum suprnova ethereum

-dpool specifies the Decred (or other dual mining coin) pool URL.
-dwal specifies the Decred (or other dual mining coin) Wallet address. In the case of Suprnova, this is not the wallet address itself, but the worker name.
-dpsw specifies the Decred (or other dual mining coin) pool password. Can be left blank.

suprnova decred

In order to use both the Ethereum and Decred pool for Claymore Dual mining, add both the pools to a Pool Group and use the Pool Group for the Managed Miner. For details, see the guide about Ethereum Dual mining.
