1. I am new to mining. What do I need to start mining?

First of all you need specialized hardware (ASIC miner)
Do not even try mining without an ASIC miner. Neither your CPU/GPU nor your Smart phone is sufficient for mining anymore. It is considered dead and unprofitable due to low efficiency (hash rate vs. power consumption).
     
If you do not own any ASIC miner then start your research here: Mining hardware comparison

2. Required software
Below mentioned software packages are NOT supported and you will have troubles connecting them to our pool:

Please be aware they are working with ASIC miners only.

5. How do i find my Bitcoin address?
    
Pool is not operating as a Bitcoin wallet.  Therefore it is not possible to generate your payout address at the pool  site. However there are plenty of Bitcoin wallet providers like coinbase.com, Mycelium.com, Greenaddress.it, Electrum.org, BitcoinArmory.com and others where you can easily create your own wallet.
    
Once you have it go to Payouts tab here and set it as your payout address.
