Miner Setup Guides

You might find setting up your GPU rig or ASIC miner a bit hard. If you’re having trouble ask Lifeguard for!Help <coin>, he will refer you to our latest tutorial and setup guides.

Tracking & Alerts

As we all know, mining can sometimes be a bit wonky. GPU rigs going down, ASICs under-perform, network issues, etc. Lifeguard, helps you distract from your miners and alerts you when things start going sideways.

First, you’ll need to share with Lifeguard your address. To do so, use the following command !Save <coin> <address>. Then, you can start asking Lifeguard to alert you when certain events happen.

For example, if you want to receive a notification every time you get paid type in !Notify Paymentor !Notify Payment <number>in case you want Lifeguard to group a bunch of transactions and send 1 notification. You can also get notifications when one of your miners hashrate decreases by more than a certain threshold or goes down by using the following command: !Notify Status <percentage>.

What if you want to know how your workers are performing?

Lifeguard is going to be more than happy to Direct Message your mining stats every few hours. Use !Stats <interval> and Lifeguard will return your hashrate, unpaid balance, worker count, blocks found and revenue statistics.

You can also ask Lifeguard for your mining on-demand. Try !Stats.

Pool and Network Statistics

Cryptocurrency markets can be very volatile, it’s quite hard to keep track of every cryptocurrency exchange rate and determine whether to sell or hodl. Luckily, Lifeguard is here to help. Ping him with !<coin> and he will return USD/BTC value, 24-hour change, volume, market cap, supply and more.

What if you want to know how many people are mining in the same pool as you? What if you want to know what’s the current network difficulty? Ask Lifeguard !Pool <coin> and he will tell you.

Requesting Payouts

How awesome would be to withdraw your balance from the pool whenever you want? Now you can! Ping Lifeguard with the following command !Pay <coin> and he will issue a manual payout to your registered address.

Social Media

Do you want to invite your over to Luxor? Ping Lifeguard with !Luxor or !Invite and he will send you all of our social media URLs. Feel free to ping us, we would ❤️ to hear from you!
