This might be a totally dumb question but I am trying to understand bitcoin mining, I hope I am bearable.
I am trying to figure out if I can use a hardware wallet with a mining pool. I have an account on slushpool.com but I don't yet have a mining device yet.
In my current understanding (which might be totally useless), I have to install a software (that works with slushpool) on a computer and configure it, connect the mining device to the computer and have some kind of a wallet for payout. The pool with give me a payout every time I reach a threshhold.
How can I use a hardware wallet with this setup? Is there something different that I need to know? My goal is to come up with a setup with as little dependency on external entities that need a "cut" from what I make.
I would appreciate any help on this.
