Setup Generator

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


Stratum Configuration (Advanced Miners)

stratum+tcp://zen.coinfoundry.org:3126 GPU Mining
stratum+tcp://zen.coinfoundry.org:3127 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.


Zencash 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 Zencash 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 Zencash Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Zencash Team.

MyZenWallet

Another possibility is to create a wallet at MyZenWallet. Please make sure to immediately backup your wallet keys after creating a wallet. We recommend using a password store such as KeePass or 1Password for that.

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