How to create a Cruxpool account
In this tutorial, you will learn how to create your mining account and how it works with your Cruxpool mining.
What can you do with a Cruxpool account ?
For a long time now we had the wish to create a personal account for our users, in order to provide more tools, more data and enhance your experience with Cruxpool.
We are now proud to present our new Login and the features that come with it.
Although anonymous mining will remain available for every miner who wishes to keep it that way, our login area is now available to every crypto miners !
If you’re mining multiple coins, or if you’re switching algorithms depending on profitability, we have designed a multi-coin view that will allow you to see all your data from every coin you mine on a single web page. You will still have access to the real-time data we’ve provided so far in statistics and earnings.
Mining with your username
On your new personal account, you’ll be able to mine cryptocurrencies on Cruxpool simply by entering your username in the command line, instead of your wallet address. Save time and avoid typo mistakes!
More Security and more privacy
On the anonymous dashboard, anybody who knows your wallet address could check your earnings, your stats and how many rigs you had. With the login, make it more private and hide your data behind a password-protected account
We’ve also added a 2FA and password protected module when you wish to change payout addresses or modify some of your personal information to make your mining experience safer.
More to come
We will be working on more features to add to your dashboard in the near future, so keep an eye on what we’re doing, and don’t hesitate to drop us a message on our Discord to suggest ideas or give feedback on your mining experience with your new dashboard.

Add payout addresses
In order to add your payout addresses, go to Payouts, available in the Settings section. After that, click on the Add button.
We will ask you to choose the coin you want and put the wallet address which is linked to it.
The last step we need is that you have to set up the payout threshold you want. This threshold must be included between the minimum and maximum reference which is displayed below the input.
Finally, click on Set and your payout address will be saved on your account.
Setting up your mining
Once you have added your payout address, you have to make some change in your usual command line which is used by mining software. Instead of putting your wallet address in the command line, you must put the username of your Cruxpool account. This is your username that will make the link between your mining, Cruxpool and your account. Our command-line generator tool is available within your personal account here.
