Whatsminer D1 Decred Setup Guide

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:


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. By signing up with Luxor Mining you will be directly supporting the success of Decred.

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:// (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:

Enjoy your brand new Whatsminer D1.

Happy Hashing!
