Tutorial | How to use the function of EPK Pool?

After the development of the EPK Pool on the EPK wallet was completed, some of our EPKers experienced this new function of one-click pledging and mining.

Compared to the former mining which requires hardware servers and some technical skills, it’s easy to mint EPK using our EPK Pool on EPK Wallet, users only need to pledge EPK on the EPK Wallet to start mining. With one-click fool-like operation, you don’t need to worry about mining.

After experiencing the functions of the EPK Pool on test net, Daniel, the experience officer, pledged 3 nodes through a one-click operation. At the same time, he also experienced the application process for miners to settle in Pool. Based on his own experience, Daniel has enthusiastically made this tutorial for everyone for convenience.
