Just received your Whatsminer D1 miner? Don’t stress we are here to help you set it up!

TL;DR Use this Global port for your Whatsminer D1:

  • dcr.luxor.tech:700

To get started, navigate to your dashboard by finding your miners’ IP address using your router or IP scanner. Then Go to Configuration - CGMiner Configuration which will look something like this:

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

Luxor Mining is a PPS pool with a 2% fee. We believe in Decred and that is why allocate a small portion of fees back to community initiatives.

Okay, that’s enough promoting for one day… lets continue setting up your Whatsminer D1!

Type in the pool setting as follows:

URL: stratum+tcp://dcr.luxor.tech:700 (set to your nearest location)

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

Password: 123

Finally, go back to CGminer Status and click on Restart CGMiner.

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 head to the Workers tab. You should see something like this:
