Beam mining pool at https://pool.raskul.com now supports public offline, private offline and max privacy addresses. This page explains what this means and how to set up mining with a public offline address, private offline address or a Beam max-privacy address

Firstly, it is important to note the limitations of these mining methods, as Beam is mostly an interactive protocol and max privacy address mining of Beam requires higher fees and furthermore,  public offline address mining and private offline address mining require higher fees as well as some extra allowances to be made by the miner.
TL:DR;
All of these methods will allow you to mine and withdraw Beam from the mining pool without the need to bring your wallet online but the best option for mining to an offline address is option A. 

Once every block mined at the pool has matured 240 blocks, the payout will be made automatically, and received by you, the miner, whenever you open your Beam wallet, be that soon after the block confirms or days / weeks after.

A - PUBLIC OFFLINE ADDRESS

THIS IS THE BEST OPTION FOR OFFLINE ADDRESS MINING WITH ONE IMPORTANT LIMITATION TO BE ACKNOWLEDGED WHEN MINING WITH BEAM OFFLINE PUBLIC ADDRESSES:

THE TRANSACTION FEE WILL BE 0.0101 BEAM (1010000 GROTH) PER WITHDRAWAL. THAT MEANS YOU PAY 0.0101 BEAM FOR EACH BLOCK REWARD YOU RECEIVE, AS THE POOL PAYS OUT AUTOMATICALLY AFTER EVERY BLOCK MATURITY.

STEP 1 – GENERATE THE ADDRESS

In your Beam desktop wallet, go to your SETTINGS page and click on SHOW PUBLIC OFFLINE ADDRESS in the UTILITIES section

Use this public offline address as your mining address – you will note that it is slightly longer than a normal address ~450 characters, please bear this in mind when you paste it into your command line! you can now follow the setup guides at https://pool.raskul.com/getting_started and start mining on the pool with your public offline address!

B - MAX PRIVACY MINING

TWO IMPORTANT LIMITATIONS SHOULD BE ACKNOWLEDGED WHEN MINING WITH BEAM MAX PRIVACY ADDRESSES:

THE FIRST IS THAT THE TRANSACTION FEE WILL BE 0.0101 BEAM (1010000 GROTH) PER WITHDRAWAL. THAT MEANS YOU PAY 0.0101 BEAM FOR EACH BLOCK REWARD YOU RECEIVE, AS THE POOL PAYS OUT AUTOMATICALLY AFTER EVERY BLOCK MATURITY.

THE SECOND IS THAT THERE WILL BE UP TO 72HRS DELAY, FOR THE COINS TO FULFIL THEIR UNLINKING IN THE SHIELDED MAX-PRIVACY POOL.

THE MAIN PURPOSE OF MAX PRIVACY ADDRESS TRANSACTIONS IS NOT TO MINE, BUT TO UNLINK THE HISTORY OF THE COINS YOU RECEIVE AND WHERE IT MAY SEEM UNNECESSARY TO USE THIS METHOD TO MINE, IT DOES ALLOW YOU TO RECEIVE YOUR MINED REWARDS IN AN OFFLINE MANNER, SAVING YOU FROM THE NEED TO OPEN YOUR WALLET WHENEVER YOU WANT TO RECEIVE YOUR MINED BEAM.

STEP 1 – GENERATE THE ADDRESS

In your Beam wallet, select ‘receive’ and switch the tab to MAX PRIVACY at ‘address type’ as below:

Use this max privacy address as your mining address – you will note that it is slightly longer than a normal address ~450 characters, please bear this in mind when you paste it into your command line! you can now follow the setup guides at https://pool.raskul.com/getting_started and start mining on the pool with your max privacy address!

C - OFFLINE ADDRESS MINING

THE MOST IMPORTANT LIMITATION TO THIS TYPE OF MINING IS THAT CURRENTLY, OFFLINE ADDRESSES IN THE BEAM WALLET ARE RESTRICTED TO TEN TRANSACTIONS PER ADDRESS – THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NEED TO GENERATE A NEW OFFLINE ADDRESS AND CHANGE YOUR MINING ADDRESS AFTER RECEIVING TEN BLOCK REWARDS FROM THE POOL

THE TRANSACTION FEE TO WITHDRAW IS THE SAME AS MAX PRIVACY MINING; 0.0101 BEAM (1010000 GROTH) PER WITHDRAWAL.

STEP 1 – GENERATE THE ADDRESS.

In your Beam wallet, select ‘receive’ and opt for the bottom choice of address methods in the list:

Use this offline address as your mining address – you will note that it is exceptionally long, ~4000 characters, so expect a flood when you paste it into your command line! you can now follow the setup guides at https://pool.raskul.com/getting_started and start mining with your offline address on the pool!

remember – if using an offline address, you will need to renew your mining command. line after receiving ten mining rewards to reflect the newley generated 10-voucher address and you will need to do this after every 10 times you receive a payout!
