Check your mining address
Your Obelisk needs to know where to send the coins it mines, and – depending on your pool – you may set this mine-to address in the Pools tab of your Obelisk Dashboard. A savvy hacker might be sneaky enough to not take your system offline, but rather have it work for them – if someone logs into your Obelisk Dashboard, they can change the address your Obelisk is mining to. A miner could work for months or years, sending coins to an address that isn't yours if you don't periodically verify the mining address.
- Log in to your Obelisk Dashboard.Verify you've changed your Dashboard password for enhanced security.
- Go to the Pools tab.
- Verify that the address listed as your Worker address is one that you control.
Check with your pool to see if they offer built-in address monitoring. This can act as another layer of protection.
