Launched in October 2018, OKEx Pool is the world's leading blockchain digital asset platform that provides mining and staking services to OKEx users — who can earn cryptocurrencies as rewards for mining and/or staking at OKEx Pool.

OKEx Pool mining

OKEx Pool enables cryptocurrency miners to earn cryptocurrency rewards via the act of mining. OKEx's pool integrates mining and trading services by transferring the mining rewards directly to the users' mining accounts. The pool also supports three settlement methods for mining rewards: 

  1. Full pay per share (FPPS)

OKEx Pool offers 12 proof-of-work cryptocurrencies for users: 

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)
  2. Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  3. Bitcoin SV (BSV)
  4. Litecoin (LTC)
  5. Ether (ETH)
  6. Ethereum Classic (ETC)

While initial payment is not required for all proof-of-work cryptocurrencies, the settlement method and mining-fee rates vary among them. The table below is a summary of the available proof-of-work cryptocurrencies that you can mine at OKEx:

Step 3: Set up your alias

On the homepage of OKEx Pools, click on Enter to set up your miner's alias. 

The alias should be a combination of 4-20 digits and/or letters. We use "patelokex123" as an example.

Step 4: Manage your mining dashboard

After choosing your alias, you will be directed to the mining dashboard. 

In the dashboard, you can check your mining data and yield record — as well as manage your mining account.

Step 5: Confirm your mining settings

In the mining dashboard, go to "Mining" in the left bar and click on PoW, which is short for "proof-of-work." Select Mining Settings to confirm your yield settings and fund arrival reminders.

Under "Yield Settings," you can select your preferred SHA256 and Ethash payment tokens.

Step 6: Choose a cryptocurrency to mine

Go back to the homepage of OKEx Pool, accessible under "More" in the top menu. From here, you can look at all of the mining algorithms and mining tokens available at OKEx.

Click on the row of your preferred token to see more details. The dropdown displays the following information for each mining token: 

  • Hash rate chart
  • Estimated daily yield
  • Mining fees
  • Settlement method and time
  • Initial payment
  • Mining addresses

You can choose the cryptocurrency to mine based on the above information.

Step 7: Connect your mining machine to OKEx Pool

We will use BTC mining as an example. 

The mining of BTC requires ASIC mining machines. In this case, we use Antminer mining machines in order to connect to OKEx Pool.

First, you need to log in to your Antminer machine via Antminer's website. After logging in, go to General Settings under "Miner Configuration." 

Under "Mining General Configuration, input the details in the "URL" and "Worker" fields. URL refers to the mining address of the cryptocurrency chosen by you. Worker refers to the worker name, which consists of the alias of the mining pool and the ID of the miner. You can ignore the "Password" field.

When everything is ready, click on Save & Apply.

Congratulations! Your mining machine is connected to OKEx Pool. 

You can now earn crypto by mining at OKEx Pool!

OKEx Pool staking

Staking is a popular way to earn passive income in the cryptocurrency space. By staking your cryptocurrencies, users may participate in block validation — similar to what miners do for Bitcoin — on a proof-of-stake blockchain and earn a set percentage as a reward.

OKEx Pool supports staking services for eight proof-of-stake cryptocurrencies: 

  1. Dai (DAI)
  2. V.systems (VSYS)
  3. Ontology (ONT)
  4. EOS (EOS)
  5. IOST (IOST)
  6. Cosmos (ATOM)
  7. Tezos (XTZ)
  8. TrueChain (TRUE) 

There are four staking periods available for you to stake your crypto: 

  1. Flexible
  2. 30 days
  3. 60 days
  4. 90 days 

Different cryptocurrencies offer different yields based on various time frames. Below is a summary for all of the coins and tokens available to stake at OKEx Pool:
