How Do I Setup My ASIC Miner?
Once you receive your miner, you’ll want to follow these steps for simple setup and operation:
- Plug the individual connectors from your power supply into each hashing card as well as into the controller.
- Connect your Ethernet cable from the miner to your router
- Plug your miner into either a 120V or 240V outlet, depending on your machine’s requirements.
- Use an IP scanner like the one at https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/ to find the IP address of your machine on your local network, make sure you are connected to your local network as well and the miner should pop up with a name referencing itself.
- Take the IP address you found for your miner and put it into an internet browser, while you are still connected to your local network, the miner should pop up with its current configuration and ask for a username and password. Typically, they will be “root” and “root” however you may find using “admin” in place of either may work. if no combination of “root” or “admin” grants access you will need to do a hard reset on the miner itself. To do a hard reset you will find a small button on the front of the miner that you will need to press and hold. after the reset is complete you will be able to use the default user and PW from earlier.
- Search the web for the current most profitable mining pool, sites like https://whattomine.com/coins and https://www.poolwatch.io/ can help you find the best option by coin or by the algorithm. once you determine which pool you want to go with and set up an account with them, you will find your individual mining addresses labeled as your workers typically. here you can set your worker name and the password for each. This can vary depending on the pool you are using so be sure to read through their unique steps for connection to their pools with your miner.
- Take the address, worker name, and PW from the pool you choose and add them into the configuration in your miner. Make sure you have your coins directed to be sent to the crypto wallet address of your choosing as well. Be sure the address you use is for the specific coin that will be sent there or you will lose them!
- Sit back and enjoy the rewards! (Don’t forget to pay the power bill…)
Why don't I see any miners for Etherium?
There is a lot up in the air regarding the future of Eth at the moment. Many are looking for the Bitmain E9 or the Innosilicon A10/11. Given the increasing possibility that Ether will be moving to a Point Of Stake platform, there is a high likelihood that Ethash based miners will become obsolete quickly. That being the case we are hesitant to market them to you as a viable option for long-term passive income. However, if you’ve done your research and still wish to get one of these machines we can price that out for you. Keep in mind though that the pricing on these machines is still holding as if nothing is changing and your ROI still tends to be around 10 months or so.
Why Are You Selling These Instead of Running Them for Profit?
It would be wonderful to build a mining farm with unlimited electrical capacity. However, one of the main limits you’ll find as you start establishing your own farm is that you only have so many 120V and 240V circuits in your home or shop. The power draw of some miners can be fairly significant and you will run out of room to place miners without tripping of the circuit, or even worse, tripping off your entire load center. This is one of the main reasons you’ll find higher profitability and more energy-efficient miners tend to cost quite a bit more.
