Setup Generator

Note: Using the setup generator is highly recommended if you are new to crypto mining


Stratum Configuration (Advanced Miners)

stratum+tcp://etc.coinfoundry.org:3076 GPU Mining
stratum+tcp://etc.coinfoundry.org:3077 High-End Multi GPU Mining

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.

Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<WORKER>

Stratum Protocol Configuration

  • Claymore Miner: Add the -esm 3 command line switch
  • Ethminer/Genoil: Add the -SP 2 command line switch

SSL/TLS: To connect using SSL/TLS please add 2 to the respective port number. For ccminer, claymore and sgminer change the protocol from stratum+tcp:// to stratum+ssl://. For dstm's Miner change the protocol from stratum+tcp:// to ssl://. XMRig does not currently support SSL.


Miner Configuration

If already have a miner you need to add or modify a command line switch to make the miner communicate using the correct stratum protocol with our pool:

  • Claymore Miner: Add the -esm 3 command line switch
  • Genoil's Miner: Add the -SP 2 command line switch

Windows Nvidia GPU Mining

  • Download ethminer for Windows
  • Extract the archive and create start.bat in a text-editor of your choice in the same directory you extracted ethminer
  • Select all and Paste:
@echo OFF

ethminer.exe -U -SP 2 -S etc.coinfoundry.org:3076 -O YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Ethereum Classic address. If you don't know your 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: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<WORKERNAME>
  • Save the file
  • Run start.bat

Windows AMD GPU Mining

  • Download ethminer for Windows
  • Extract the archive and create start.bat in a text-editor of your choice in the same directory you extracted ethminer
  • Select all and Paste:
@echo OFF

ethminer.exe -G -SP 2 -S etc.coinfoundry.org:3076 -O YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Ethereum Classic address. If you don't know your 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: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<WORKERNAME>

Getting a Wallet

Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Ethereum Classic 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.

Exodus Wallet

Exodus is the a desktop multi-asset wallet with built in ShapeShift support for converting between crypto-currencies. The application is comfortable to use available for Windows, macOS and Linux. One of the best features of this multi-currency wallet the client-side encryption of your private keys which means you stay in full control of your keys which never leave your machine in unencrypted form.

Hardware Wallets

Trezor

A hardware wallet is a special type of wallet which stores the user's private keys in a secure hardware device. Hardware wallets offer robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. Popular hardware wallets are the Ledger Nano S and the Trezor.

Paper Wallets

For long-term storage of Ethereum Classic you should create a cold wallet using MyEtherWallet or similar. A paper wallet is extremely secure if you guard your ethereum 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.

Registering with an 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. Registering with an exchange is probably the most convenient way to obtain a wallet. Unfortunately it is also the least secure one. Exchanges have been hacked in the past!

Popular exchanges supporting Ethereum Classic are: Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, Bitfinex and HitBTC.
