How to mine Conflux (CFX)?

In this guide we will show you how to set up Conflux (CFX) mining with minerstat.

Note Please note that mining CFX is currently only possible on Nvidia systems due to miners not having an implementation of Octopus algorithm CFX uses available for AMD systems.

Pools

First, open the address editor and add a new tag (POOL:CFX) which will hold the pool's stratum address. We'll be using Nanopool in our example. There are several locations available, so choose one of the following stratum addresses:

  • stratum+tcp://cfx-eu1.nanopool.org:17777
  • stratum+tcp://cfx-eu2.nanopool.org:17777
  • stratum+tcp://cfx-us-east1.nanopool.org:17777
  • stratum+tcp://cfx-us-west1.nanopool.org:17777
  • stratum+tcp://cfx-asia1.nanopool.org:17777
  • stratum+tcp://cfx-jp1.nanopool.org:17777
  • stratum+tcp://cfx-au1.nanopool.org:17777

Wallet

In the next step you need to save your wallet address to your address editor. Create new tag (WALLET:CFX) under wallets with your CFX wallet address. For example: aazjy2abab3j0ud8ys0npt18ggnung5r4ps2pg8van

Note Note that this address must be a CFX main network address. Binance, for instance, only allows CFX deposits via Binance Smart Chain (and not CFX main network) so pools will not be able to payout to those addresses.

Worker's config

In the next step, navigate to your worker's config. Select a default mining client that you want to use for mining CFX and then use the simple or advanced configuration.

Select mining client

Click on the default mining client's name, search for CFX, and select preferred mining client. Mining clients that are grayed out are not available for your system and type of worker.
