Chia HPOOL pool — Linux tutorial

Say good-bye to the 0XCH club!

In this post I will guide you on how to setup a Chia HPOOL on your Linux system. Here are some resource before I begin:

  • RAM: 16GB 2400Mhz (2x8GB)
  • Plotting SSD: 1TB Samsung 980
  • FARMING HDD: WD External 14TB x 2
  • OS: Ubuntu 20.08

HPOOL rewarding:

The current income is around 2$ per TB/Day. Below you can see the info of HPOOL, its payout, fees, minimal withdrawal amount. Its important to note that the minimal withdrawal amount is 0.2 XCH. You won’t be able to withdraw to external wallet if you have less than that!

  • Head to your HPOOL Personal Center and follow the images to open a new pool connection:
Click “Open Pool” and then “Not open, please open first” on the right side
Click on “Open Pool” under CHIAECO
Click “Go To Configuration”
Paste you Signature string you copied prior and hit “Bind”
Now copy the “API Key” and save it for the miner setup.

Triggering the miner:

The miner will work properly only if you disable the farming process in your Official Chia client. There are 2 ways to do it: 1. Remove the plots locations through the client GUI or turning off the client.
I’m not using the Chia client for plotting so I am not running the client. I plot with CLI using PlotNG tool and I highly recommend because of the plotting utilisation it enables.

./hpool-miner-chia
  • Insert the location of your plots — you can insert multiple locations by hitting Enter after each path. To end the input insert “end” in the console.
  • Thats it! Now you should see a log print and in couple of minutes you will see your machine in the HPOOL site working. After couple of hours you will also see all the plots that you have added to the miner, and will start receiving rewards.
