How do I set the address that mining rewards are sent? This means that ethminer will send mining rewards to that a address.

1 Answer 1


I am assuming you have ethminer installed.... you need to also be running your own node. The miner will not run without a node to run on top of. You can use geth or parity both are pretty popular.

in parity: parity --author <YOUR ADDRESS HERE>

in geth: geth --mine --etherbase <YOUR ADDRESS HERE>
