Just finished plotting my 3tb do I need a coin to join a pool?

Hey, I probably sound a lot like a noob because I am but I just spent two days plotting 3tb of hdd’s and am just now finding out I think I need a coin to start? If that’s true I feel bad for begging but could someone help me out, and if not could someone just tell me why linking to a pool wont work for me?
Here’s my address if that is the problem BURST-HRDV-8THQ-U5LG-2J7TF I thought I could just plot and mine sorry for the confusion.

Sending over a coin, welcome!

Read the information below carefully, because this is the only coin I’m sending you :slight_smile: With the amount of coins I am giving out daily now, I’m trying to get people to conserve coins when starting off so I can help out more people. If possible, please help out any new person needing a coin. Donations are also welcome to help me start new people off :slight_smile: BURST-FFLQ-3QZJ-267R-F3QBX

---- Getting Started Read Below Before Continuing ----

Contrary to what most of the getting started guides say, you only need to create one transaction to “activate” your wallet. Changing your reward recipient to a pool for mining gets this done. Please read this post regarding activating your account - What It Means To Create Your Public Key (AKA “Activate” Your Account) - Simply Explained

Highly recommend https://0-100-pool.burst.cryptoguru.org/ and http://www.burstneon.com/ pools for new miners!
