Login using your wallet address as username. An optional workername can be appended to your address separated by a dot character. Leave the password blank.
ASIC BOOST: This pool fully supports Version-Rolling ASIC Boost - also known as Overt ASIC Boost. This feature is supported on Halong Mining's DragonMint T1 and hardware based on Bitmain's BM1380 chip such as Antminer S9, R4, S9i, S9j, T9 and T9+.
Static difficulty: To mine with a static (fixed) difficulty simply use
d=xxx as password in your miner configuration where
xxx denotes your preferred difficulty.

stratum+tcp://bch.coinfoundry.org:3210as the Url for Pool 1.
- Now enter your Bitcoin Cash address in the "Worker" field of the first pool. If you don't know your Bitcoin Cash wallet address, read this section first.
- If you are mining on multiple machines/rigs, you can append an identifier of your choice to your wallet address seperated by a dot to make it easier to distinguish between your rigs when evaluating your results. Example:
- Click "Save"
- You are now good to go to start mining
Getting a Wallet
Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Bitcoin Cash is an entirely digital asset, you still need a place to store them. This is done in a digital wallet. There are multiple methods to obtain a wallet which vary by ease of use and the security they provide.
Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the Bitcoin Cash Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Bitcoin Cash Team.
For long-term storage of Dash you should create a paper wallet. A paper wallet is extremely secure if you guard your private key by storing it in a password vault such as KeePass or LastPass or printing it out and depositing the sheet in a real bank vault.
A hardware wallet is a special type of wallet which stores your private keys in a secure hardware device. Hardware wallets offer robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. The most popular hardware wallets are the Ledger Nano S and the Trezor.
The Ledger Nano S is our favorite hardware wallet and also used by Coinfoundry Staff. The wallet supports over 1100 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP, allowing you to manage multiple assets with the same hardware wallet. The device is controlled by only 2 buttons, and all actions can be verified on its screen.
Registering with a Crypto-Exchange
There are multiple digital currency exchanges you can register with. Registering with an exchange allows you to create a wallet on the exchange for every currency the exchange supports.
