Worker Format: sub-account.miner name
Example: If your sub-account is “antminer”, then your miners could be set up as antminer.1, antminer_1, antminer.2, etc. The miner order will be sorted by the miner name.
Password: (Blank). if you change addresses in bulk, fill it as 123.

6. Go to Miner Status, refresh for several times in case for the slow reaction. You can check the speed in this page, and confirm if the miner works normal.
We could join this telegram group to share knowledge:
Except Electroneum like said above, nothing :(
Guys. You can mine Electroneum on miningpoolhub until they fork on 30 May.
I started already.
And after that, Get a chunk of forked coins :) lol
(Seems like they like forking to make new coins ;) [Just the cycle of life])
I contact Nicehash and this was there reply:
Jesseldow, please go https://electroneum.miningpoolhub.com/ if you need to mine ETN, works now.
Good idea Diego, I joined. See you soon.
What daily $ amount are we now seeing with the X3?
@Paul P Coady
I was in the same situation as you, but since today, I see my XMC account balance (please look at attached picture). You have to change your pay method into PPS. I hope it will help you.
I got an answer from Nicehash support, which confirms that Antminer X3 is currently not compatible with Nicehash! That's shit. I hope a future upgrade will fix that (BITMAIN, ANSWER PLEASE!).
X3 miner is currently not supported on Nicehash. Cryptonight algorithm that X3 uses is a bit different than what we use. Also, we would like to point out that Bitmain did not send us any miner prior to the release so that we could test it in our labs and make sure that everything is compatible with our settings.
Kind regards, NiceHash Team"
Thank you sir.
I do have an update... I am mining with nicehash now... I am not sure that is it working 100% I have nothing in my accepted.. but take a look if anyone wants to see. any advice would but thankful.
Good question Burak!
YOU CAN'T USE ANY WALLET BECAUSE YOU JUST GET:
"XMC No support for the time being"!!!!
Getting a wallet is no problem with gate.io.
Geting XMC put into the wallet is the real problem!!
thanks W Kolia2311
I managed to connect with miningpoolhub pool mining Electroneum as W Kolia2311 said it works for the time.
it's the best payout for the time that i found.
good luck gents
I hope too, but I don't think so. I spoke with them hours ago on their chat:

I'm very disappointed by your behaviour about its product Antminer X3. I receveid 4 X3 last week, and still today, I cannot mine on Nicehash Cryptonight server! What happens?
Furthermore, Bitmain doesn't answer to our questions (I say "our", cause every customer becomes mad with this Antminer). No support at all! Look at comments under the guide "Connect Antminer X3 to Pools_Antpool". It's amazing! No one answer from Bitmain.
I know that Monero did a fork, ok, but why cannot we mine other coins than XMC (as DynastyCoin, Bytecoin ...) on Nicehash on the Cryptonight server? It smells the scam!
Is the antminer X3 really a scam?

(08:03:41 AM) huizhen.hu: hi sir, i'll look through your query, please wait
(08:04:17 AM) Aloïs LIEN: Thank you, cause for now, I've no answer to my tickets and comments.
(08:05:46 AM) Aloïs LIEN: neither on Tiwtter, that's why I come on this chat.
(08:06:07 AM) huizhen.hu: ok sir, i'll help with it
(08:06:25 AM) huizhen.hu: The Antminer X3 is designed to mine cryptocurrencies using the hashing algorithm CryptoNight.
To learn about the performance of the X3 to mine a certain CryptoNight-based cryptocurrency after a planned “hard fork” of that cryptocurrency, please check the required details of the particular hard fork to understand what effect the hard fork will have, if any, on performance of the machines being used to mine that cryptocurrency.
Unfortunately, considering the unpredictability of consensus among any cryptocurrency community, especially those concerning hard forks in a globally used cryptocurrency, we cannot say with certainty what may or may not be the result of a hard fork.
Cryptocurrency mining is a risky investment because it is subject to the above changes and changes to the exchange rate of the cryptocurrency. We advise all our buyers to research these factors well and deliberate well before buying.
If you face any issues with your order or miner, please feel free to submit a new ticket with the “Ticket Type” and “Product or Service” that most closely represents your issue. This ensures that you receive a timely response from the Bitmain team that is best equipped to resolve your issue or answer your queries.
(08:06:33 AM) huizhen.hu: please look through it sir
(08:07:09 AM) Aloïs LIEN: I know that sir.
(08:08:41 AM) Aloïs LIEN: Each time, it's the Bitmain answer? Doesn't work. There was an hard fork with XMR (Monero), ok. Logical we cannot mine it with X3, BUT why cannot we mine other coins which use the last algorithm?
(08:10:05 AM) huizhen.hu: sir, failing sorry for it, i cannot reply u on this query, u may open a ticket , my colleague will deal with it
(08:10:14 AM) Aloïs LIEN: Oh ok
(08:10:34 AM) Aloïs LIEN: I already opened 4 tickets, sir!
(08:10:36 AM) huizhen.hu: sorry sir, is there anything else i can help u?
(08:11:20 AM) Aloïs LIEN: Yes, please tell your colleagues to answer and communicate about this issue. It's very important for Bitmain reputation.
(08:12:07 AM) Aloïs LIEN: Maybe Bitmain is not ready with X3. It happens. In this case, tell it to your 1rst batch customers. Respect them. Thank you.
(08:12:25 AM) Aloïs LIEN: Have a nice day.
(08:12:43 AM) huizhen.hu: ok sir, have a nice day~
(08:15:15 AM) *** huizhen.hu left the chat ***
which URL to configure?
Bitmain is not ready dude. It seems like beta version. We are discussing on the Telegram group about other coins, others pools ...
Payment method is default PPS. I never changed this.
Alois, your hard earned 7 coins have just dropped another 30% today. Maybe you should have sold yesterday... oops I forgot you can't!
I am really glad I paid $12,000 for the privilege of getting miners early only to waste a week with Antpool problems and no support from Bitmain. The icing on the cake is the privilege of now earning coins created by Bitmain that are dropping like a lead balloon and I can't sell.
Next stage of this wonderful experience will be the collapse of XMC price when all the X3 miners are finally able to sell their coins.
I hope someone from Bitmain is reading this.
try flooding the CEO of Bitmain twitter account with complains
Monero Classic down from $ 23 to $ 14 for 2 days. I think those ASICs for nothing can no longer be used.
Can't add wallet, XMC WALLE
Seriously? Not cool. No need to write here if you don't help. I don't understand this attitude :/ Good night sirs.
so no updates ?
Actually there are several cyptonight coins you can mine...Bytecoin is one of them. Dont use the max speed port especially if its listed as Nicehash..use the 5555 port not 8888. Also set the difficulty to 13,200,000 or 6,000,000 . Depending on the pool you do this by adding that number at the end of your wallet address ( on the worker name line). Some need a +13200000 and some use another convention. Read the pool settings to see which .
I was mining from day one of receiving my X3..i gave up on nicehash and antpool quickly as clearly the Cryptonight 7 wont work with it.. I have been mining Bytecoin mainly and Karbo. Bitmain are reputable and they dont sell shite...but probably they dont mind if you dont push the difficulty level up so fast for a few days. Bytecoin makes USD 50/day
We use BW pool to do the mining and not bad till now. You can try as well. If you have any question, welcome to ask me. My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org :)
@Tghiggins Please read all the last comments. It's impossible for now :(
I understand that I can't add the wallet address for the miner at this time but my question is what exchange out there would I be able to create an account that would except XMC? With Nicehash they paid in BTC but I'm assuming that if this ever works I would be paid in XMC not BTC. Tell me if I'm wrong.
Discarded is not important. Rejected is what matters. Your miner is working fine.
Still not. I'll try, but i would prefer to mine other coins than XMC (Bytecoin, Electroneum ...).
Last news: it seems to finally work on Antpool (XMC). I keep you informed.
At least, you found a solution for this first step. Gratz ;)
I agree with you: this situation smells bad. Maybe Bitmain is mining on Nicehash, while they force their 1rst batch customers to mine the coin XMC on Antpool to raise it?
than how to mining ?
