Getting Started

Info

Please note that untrusted members have to accumulate 1.75 HDD in their collateral balance before receiving rewards by the pool to protect the pool against cheaters. When leaving the pool you can claim your collateral balance via the pools web ui.

Currently, only long known members of the Foxy Discord are trusted, but if such a person knows you very well, he can vouch for you.

Getting started

Warning

Due to the fact that Foxy-Pool does not know which of your plots are farming on Foxy-Pool and which are farming solo, all plots using the same pool public key need to farm on Foxy-Pool to avoid getting flagged for cheating.

Also, if you want to farm solo or to some other pool make sure to leave the pool by clicking the "Leave pool" button in the "My Farmer" tab, so you do not get banned for cheating. For more info please see Leaving the pool

Info

The following changes are only necessary for the node running the farmer service. If you run the GUI you also run the farmer service. As such if you run a multi harvester setup you only need to update the node with the farmer on it, the harvesters can remain as is.

  1. To get started farming on Foxy-Pool HDDCOIN (OG) please download and install the pooling enabled hddcoin-blockchain software from here. The source is available on the main branch in case you prefer or require to build from source.
  2. Find your hddcoin config.yaml:

    ~/.hddcoin/mainnet/config/config.yaml
    
    C:\Users\<user>\.hddcoin\mainnet\config\config.yaml
    
  3. Now update your hddcoin config.yaml with the following changes:

    • Add the pool_url option to the farmer section of the hddcoin config.yaml and set it to https://farmer.hddcoin-og.foxypool.io. Please note that there must not be a trailing slash present.
    • Add the pool_payout_address option to the farmer section of the hddcoin config.yaml and set it to your desired hddcoin payout address

    Your config.yaml should now look something like this:

    config example

  4. Save the config.yaml and (re-)start the pooling enabled hddcoin-blockchain.

Verify your farmer is working correctly

To verify your farmer is working correctly, please set your log level to INFO in your hddcoin config.yaml and restart your hddcoin-blockchain software. If the connection to the pool worked you'll now see a log entry in your hddcoin debug.log:

Connected to OG pool Foxy-Pool HDDCOIN (OG)
Otherwise, you'll see the following info message that pooling is disabled:
Not OG pooling as 'pool_payout_address' and/or 'pool_url' are missing in your config

Once you submitted your first partial to the pool you can log in to the pool. This can take 1 - 60 minutes, depending on your capacity.

You can search your log for

The partial submitted to the OG pool was accepted
to check for them.

Logging in

To see your farmers stats on the My Farmer tab of the pool you need to log in with the pool public key used by your plots. The pool public key can be found in your hddcoin config.yaml in the pool_public_keys list or via hddcoin keys show.

It is advisable to authenticate at this stage, so you can change your name, set a minimum payout amount or leave the pool. To do so please follow the steps described in Authenticate

Leaving the pool

To leave the pool (temporary or permanent) please follow these steps:

  1. Visit the My Farmer tab of the pool, log in and authenticate.
  2. Press the "Leave pool" button and confirm whether you want to leave temporary (collateral will remain as is) or permanent (collateral will be paid out):

    leave pool

  3. Once you have left the pool via the button, shut down your hddcoin-blockchain software and head over to your hddcoin config.yaml.

  4. In the config remove the pool_payout_address and pool_url config options you added to the farmer section.
  5. Important: Change the hdd_target_address in the pool config section back to one of your addresses so that block rewards are credited to you instead of the pool!
  6. Install the official hddcoin-blockchain software.
