How to start mining Zcash?

Zcash improves on the original technology. Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies expose your entire payment history to the public. Zcash is the first open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography. That is why we set up Luxor's first Zcash mining pool!

At Luxor we only mine coins that we believe in, that's why we set up a Zcash Pool and support the community in any means possible. If you are a current miner of Zcash, or want to start make sure to check out our pool. 

We've detailed guides for your miner, feel free to check those out in the following URLs:

Also, you can get a wallet from the following Zcash Community Post.

Type in the pool setting as follows:

URL: stratum+tcp:// 

Worker: [LuxorUsername].WorkerName (Workername can be anything, but avoid using symbols or special characters as it may be an invalid username). More on user accounts here.

Password: 123

Once you’ve started hashing, grab yourself a beer! It’ll take about 5 minutes for your worker to appear on our stats page. To find your user, simply log into your account and head to the Workers tab. You should see something like this:


Happy Hashing!
