Mining Server Addresses
- Get a Sia address
- You can grab the Sia client and use it to generate an address. (An address is a sequence of 76 hexadecimal characters.)
- Get a compatible miner
ASIC miners come with their own software, which is usually configured over your local network. All known Blake2b ASICs support SiaMining's Stratum protocol (port 3333). The server addresses that you can use are listed at the top of this page. Some miners allow you to specify more than one, for failover.
- Connect to the pool
You must use your Sia address as the username; you can optionally specify a worker name (to help you keep track of your miners) by adding it after a single dot (.). A full username would therefore be of the form YourSiaAddress.WorkerName. You can use any password.
Here is a sample configuration. You can use any URL from the list at the top of this page.
URL: asia.siamining.com:3333 Worker: YourSiaAddress.WorkerName Password: x
