When setting up claymore, do you enter your coinbase/geth address as the place to receive your payments? I set up a coinbase account also, but the Ethereum wallet there is different than the address you get by entering in cmd "geth attach, eth.coinbase". If I was supposed to enter my coinbase wallet code and not my geth address would I basically sacrifice all the mining I've done over the past week if I change it now?

I figured it takes my RX480 10 days to generate 0.1 Ethereum now (IIRC the difficulty has roughly doubled in the last 1.5 months). I really wanted to get one 0.2 ETH payout from nanopool before I quit, even though I started late. But I figured what am I going to do with $20? Especially since it would require me to set up a secondary paypal account (don't trust the system) and all the BS that comes with cashing in ETH for USD.
0.15 ETH/month * $185 = $28 before I subtract electricity ~86kWh * $0.14 = $12 so I'd only net $16/month or so. And it'll be worse next week, and worse the week after that.
