Setup Generator

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


Stratum Configuration (Advanced Miners)

stratum+tcp://zec.coinfoundry.org:3036 GPU Mining
stratum+tcp://zec.coinfoundry.org:3037 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>

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.


ZCash Addresses

In addition to the standard t-addresses (transparent address), we also support payouts directly to z-addresses for transaction shielding and complete balance privacy.

Getting a Wallet

Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although ZCash 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 Wallets

Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the ZCash Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the ZCash Team.

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.

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 ZCash are: Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, Bitfinex and HitBTC.
