Starter Guide

  • Create your farm. This is where you will manage your worker (mining rig)
    1. Click the + button at the top right by your username
    2. Give your farm a name
    3. Set your timezone
    4. Unselect Hiveon Pool Charging

  • Get your Farm Hash. This will be used by me to assign your worker to your farm.
      1. In your farm, click the settings tab and copy your farm hash. 
      2. It will look like this: 5c1409474c847e11759e74f83d769c67b444727d
  • Reply to our order confirmation email with your farm hash. We won't be able to ship your rig preconfigured without this!

    • Setup your Wallet. This assumes you want to mine Ethereum which is the most profitable coin at the time of writing, and that you have an Ethereum wallet already. 


      1. (If you do not already have an ETH wallet, you have many options. Personally I use a software wallet like Metamask for short term storage, and a hardware wallet like Ledger Nano S for long term storage. You can also use your Crypto Exchange wallet like Binance or Coinbase.) 
      2. Click the Wallets tab in your farm
      3. Click Add Wallet
      4. Select ETH as the coin
      5. Name it
      6.  Paste your wallet address. (If using Metamask, it will be in the top center of the extension when you click on it)
      7. Set as global wallet
    1. Setup a new Flight Sheet. This is where you will configure your miner.
      1. In your farm, click the flight sheets tab and add flight sheet
      2. Coin: ETH
      3. Wallet: the wallet you just added
      4. Pool: ethermine (in my experience it's the most profitable)
        1. Pool profitability can change however, so you want to keep an eye on the blocks here: https://miningpoolstats.stream/ethereum
        2. The more blocks, the better. However block availability can be based on luck
      5. Pool: Hiveon is also a good choice due to more stable fees based on network demand
      6. Select Pool Server: choose the servers closest to you (US East, US West)
      7. Miner: PhoenixMiner
        1. PhoenixMiner has given me my best results and is great mining software actively being developed for.

    1. Wait for your mining rig to arrive... (the hardest part)

    1. Start Mining!
      1. Plug in the GPU to the riser card and plug in the PCI power cable(s) zip tied to the GPU shelf to the top of the card. 
      2. Plug in your miner to the wall and to your router.
      3. Power it on by pushing the button on the breakout board next to the voltage readout.
      4. Push the power button zip tied to the frame by the graphics cards..
      5. You should see your miner added as a worker to your farm. (It may take a few minutes to boot up)
      6. Apply your flight sheet to your worker: In the Flight Sheet tab, click the rocket icon 
        1. You can also change flight sheets this way if you decide to setup additional flight sheets using different pools and mining software.
    2. Monitoring
      1. You can monitor your miner, power it off, and connect to its command line interface all from the HiveOS dashboard 
      2. Verify that your card is overclocked and undervolted: 
        1. Under the cards tab, for RTX 3070 equipped rigs, it should look like this:
