Antminer Z9 Mini Zencash Setup Guide

Background

ZenCash is a platform designed for private communications and private economic activity. Cutting-edge cryptography and zero knowledge proofs enable fully anonymous peer to peer communications with ZenCash. ZenCash’s distributed and encrypted networking design is resistant, to traffic correlation and metadata analysis. That is why we set up Luxor’s first Zencash mining pool!

Zencash is the latest addition to our services as a pool operator. We are pleased to continue to provide our miners with more options and to support the Zencash community. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Luxor, we are a altcoin pool built for high quality cryptocurrencies. We originally started with Sia and Decred and recently joined the LBRY, Loki, Monero, Aion and Zcash communities.

We now offer a reliable, PPS, 3% pool. Click here to join Luxor’s Zencash pool.

Setup Guide

To get started, navigate to your dashboard by finding your miners’ IP address using your router or scanner. Your page will look something like this:

Z9 Mini Miner Configuration

You should see the option to mine with a number of different pools. We’re going to set it up with Luxor’s Zencash Mining Pool, the best mining pool — disclaimer: we’re slightly biased :)

zen-us.luxor.tech:6677

zen-eu.luxor.tech:6677

zen-asia.luxor.tech:6677

Pick one of the above Stratum nodes (ensure it is port 6677), and type in the pool setting as follows:

URL: zen-us.luxor.tech:6677(set to your nearest location)

Worker: YourZencashAddress.username (username can be anything, but avoid using symbols or special characters as it may be an invalid username)

Password: 123

For the other nodes (Pool 2 and Pool 3), feel free to use any of the other region nodes, such as zen-eu.luxor.tech:6677.

How to OverClock your miner?

Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Miner Configuration > Advanced Settings
  2. Select your desire frequency from the dropdown list
  3. Click Save and Apply
  4. Monitor Board Temperature and Chip Temperature

OverClocking can result in damage of your miner, do it at your own risk. Always monitor the temperature of your miner so it doesn’t overheat.

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 go to mining.luxor.tech/zencash and type in your wallet address at the top of the searchbar. You should see something like this:

Enjoy your brand new Z9 Mini Miner :)

Happy Hashing!
