How to set up mining on Poolin pool?

Poolin is one of the largest Bitcoin mining pools, which also offers mining of other coins, such as ETH, CKB, HNS, LTC, and many more.

The fees for mining are different from 0% to 4%, with 3% for mining ETH. The minimum payout threshold for mining ETH is 0.2 ETH, and different for other coins. The reward methods they use are PPS, PPLNS, and FPPS - depending on the coin.

In this article, we will show you how to configure your GPU mining rig to mine ETH on Poolin.


First, open the address editor and add a new tag (POOL:ETH-POOLIN) which will hold the Poolin stratum address. There are several ports available, so choose one of the following stratum addresses:

  • stratum+tcp://
  • stratum+tcp://
  • stratum+tcp://


Next, save the tag (WALLET:POOLIN) under wallets with your Poolin's sub-account name. You can generate this sub-account name on Poolin's dashboard. You can create any mining account name you like and use it for identification of your rigs.

NOTE It is very important to note that when mining on Poolin, you need to identify with the sub-account name that can be saved as (WALLET:POOLIN) in your address editor and is generated in your Poolin dashboard. Mining directly to a wallet address won't work.

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 on Poolin and then use the simple or advanced configuration.

Simple config example

  • Coin: ETH
  • Wallet: (WALLET:POOLIN)
  • Password: x

Phoenix ETH example

-worker (WORKER) -pool (POOL:ETH-POOLIN) -wal (WALLET:POOLIN) -pass x -eres 0 -log 0 -proto (AUTO)

TeamRedMiner example

--algo ethash -o (POOL:ETH-POOLIN) -u (WALLET:POOLIN).(WORKER) -p --eth_dag_slowdown=9 --watchdog_script=/home/minerstat/minerstat-os/bin/ --eth_no_ramp_up

Worker with name 001

If Poolin assigned your worker with name 001, use the following advanced config examples.

Phoenix ETH example

-worker 001 -pool (POOL:ETH-POOLIN) -wal (WALLET:POOLIN) -pass x -eres 0 -log 0 -proto (AUTO)

TeamRedMiner example

--algo ethash -o (POOL:ETH-POOLIN) -u (WALLET:POOLIN).001 -p --eth_dag_slowdown=9 --watchdog_script=/home/minerstat/minerstat-os/bin/ --eth_no_ramp_up
