To get started, a scanning tool like AngryIP or Locator from Minerstats allows you to scan every device on your network and see its IP address. After getting your miner’s IP address, you are ready for Configuration.
You should see the option to mine with a number of different pools. We’re going to set it up with Luxor’s Mining Pool, the best mining pool — disclaimer: we’re slightly biased 😃.

Unified Global Stratum Endpoint
It automatically proxies your miner's TCP connection to the nearest available region without having to think about regional settings or port numbers. Additionally, if the nearest region is temporarily down for various reasons (bugs, cloud-provider maintenance, etc) then your miner will automatically get redirected to the nearest region to prevent any loss in hashing.
Regional Stratum Endpoints
Pick one of the above Stratum nodes (ensure it is port 5050 for local stratums or 700 for global), and type in the pool setting as follows:
URL: stratum+tcp://dash-us.luxor.tech:5050 (use global or set your nearest location).
Workername can be anything, but avoid using symbols or special characters as it may be invalid. If you have a FusionSilicon X7, keep in mind that its firmware doesn't accept underscores in the username or workername.
Worker: [LuxorUsername or YourDASHAddress].WorkerName
For the other nodes (Pool 2 and Pool 3), feel free to use any of the other region nodes, such as
Set up a Luxor User Accounts
For enhanced security features and to provide you greater control of your mining operations create a User Account with Luxor.
With custom payment thresholds, payment intervals, and manual payouts, you dictate when you want to get paid. Set your payment threshold to suit your needs. Also, User Accounts get access to Catalyst which uses smart coin-conversion technology to allow you to get Bitcoin instead.

Monitoring revenue and miner performance on Luxor
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 go to mining.luxor.tech and login to your account to type in your wallet address at the top of the search bar. You should see something like this:
To make your life easier, we developed the smartest Mining Bot: Lifeguard. He is available 24/7 and always in a good mood to answer all of your questions and track your miners status and performance.
Wallets: Where to store your DASH?
If you want to run a full node and access all of DASH features including InstantSend, PrivateSend, governance and masternode management we suggest downloading the official DASH wallet here.
A great lightweight multi-asset wallet is Exodus and also has built-in exchange functions. Exodus supports Desktop (Windows, MacOS & Linux) and Mobile (Android and iOS). You can download it here.
In case you need to check transactions, you can find the Block Explorer here.
