How to set up Mining Pool Hub?

Mining Pool Hub is one of the more known auto-exchange multipools which allows mining different coins or algorithms and auto-exchange it to various cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, ethereum, monero, and others. Since Mining Pool Hub isn't typical anonymous pool and you need to register before being able to use it, we will show you how to set up mining Ethash on MiningPoolHub.

MiningPoolHub dashboard

You can prepare your MiningPoolHub dashboard in these simple steps.

  1. Start by registering a new account on Mining Pool Hub. To keep your account safe, set the PIN and OTP (One Time Password).
  2. Open Hub workers to add new worker. Worker name can be the same as on minerstat with the password set to x.
  3. If it is not selected yet, set the worker's Job to No work  .
  4. If you want to select a specific coin in which you want to get paid, head over to Auto Exchange. Select the coin, read the disclaimer, and click Set Auto Exchange Coin.

minerstat dashboard

To set up mining at MiningPoolHub on minerstat dashboard follow the next steps.

Address editor

First, open address editor and add new tag (POOL:MPH-ETH) with the value of Mining Pool Hub Ethash stratum address:

  • us-east.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:17020
  • europe.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:17020
  • asia.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:17020

Next, save the tag (WALLET:MPH) with the value of your username on MiningPoolHub. You can find your username on your edit account.

Worker's config

In the next step, navigate to your worker's config. Select the default mining client for mining Ethash algorithm. You can find the list here along with the current estimated profitability provided by MiningPoolHub API.

  • Claymore ETH
  • Phoenix ETH
  • Ethminer

The default configs for selected mining client will be loaded. You will need to update the configuration to identify worker and wallet as (WALLET:MPH).(WORKER).

Claymore ETH example

-epool (POOL:MPH-ETH) -eworker (WALLET:MPH).(WORKER) -ewal (WALLET:MPH).(WORKER) -epsw x -mode (MODE:SINGLE)

Phoenix ETH example

-worker (WALLET:MPH).(WORKER) -pool (POOL:MPH-ETH) -wal (WALLET:MPH).(WORKER) -pass x -proto (AUTO)

Ethminer example

-P stratum1+tcp://(WALLET:MPH).(WORKER)@(POOL:MPH-ETH) --report-hashrate

You can repeat the process for any other coin or algorithm options, just make sure that:

  • You are using correct stratum addresses;
  • You are using correct ports;
  • You have chosen correct mining client;
  • You have identified with (WALLET:MPH).(WORKER);
  • You have used correct password in password parameter.
