Bitcoin (BTC) Mining Tutorials

The concept of Bitcoin was first proposed by Satoshi Nakamoto on November 1, 2008, and on January 3, 2009, it was officially born. The open-source software designed and released along the lines of Satoshi Nakamoto and the decentralized network on which it is built. Bitcoin is a decentralized form of virtual, cryptographic digital currency. Peer-to-peer transmission means a decentralized payment system.

Total Circulation: 21 million

Mining Algorithm: SHA-256

1. What you need to prepare in mining

1.1 Mining equipment: Bitcoin mining machine, mining machine power supply (ACMiner's mining machine includes power supply), network cable, equipment to manage the mining machine (PC computer, laptop computer can be).

Before shopping for a bitcoin miner, you can refer to the miner revenue ranking provided by our technical team to shop for the right miner to maximize your revenue.

1.2 Getting a Wallet Address: Bitcoins, like your assets, need to be stored in a safe place. There are two ways to get a wallet address, one is to use a bitcoin wallet and the other is to use a wallet address generated by an exchange (BinanceOKX, Huobi, etc.).

1.3 Create a mining username in the pool and get the corresponding mining address. (We will use the BTC mining pool as an example below)

2. Mining pool setup

2.1 Go to https://pool.btc.com and click on the "Register" button in the upper right-hand corner to register your account.

2.2 After registering, set your sub-account name (the sub-account name is unique and is used by the mining pool to determine if it is your machine), select the currency as BTC and the region closest to you.

2.3 After setting up the sub-account, we need to add a payment address (bitcoin miners will receive bitcoins from their work into your payment address account). Note that if you are a new account or have not done Two-Factor Verification yet, you will need to use the Two-Factor Verification APP on your phone.

3. Miner Settings

Take the Antminer as an example to make relevant settings for the miner.

3.1 The image below shows the various ports on the main panel of the Antminer.

Plug the power and network cables into the corresponding ports (different miners may use different numbers and ports, if you are not sure, you can consult us via email or online chat).

3.2 Connect the miner to your computer on the same LAN. Download the tool to find the IP address of the miner: IP Reporter.

Download address: https://service.bitmain.com.cn/support/download?product=IP-reporter

3.3 Open the software, click the "Start" button, then press and hold the IP Report button on the panel of the miner, after about a second or so, release it, then the software on the computer will receive the IP address feedback.

3.4 Enter the obtained IP address into the address bar of your browser and log in with the default username and password: root and 12345678.

3.5 After logging in, find the General Settings section of the Miner Configuration tab in the miner's backend, and fill in the URLs of Pool 1, Pool 2, and Pool 3 with the three mining addresses (choose the mining address according to the location of the miner).

Mining Addresses:

  • USA: us.ss.btc.com:1800 / us.ss.btc.com:443 / us.ss.btc.com:25
  • Europe: eu.ss.btc.com:1800 / eu.ss.btc.com:443 / eu.ss.btc.com:25
  • Southeast Asia: sg.ss.btc.com:1800 / sg.ss.btc.com:443 / sg.ss.btc.com:25

When mining, the miner usually connects to the first address, if there is a problem with the first address, the miner will automatically connect to the second address, and similarly, when there is a problem with the second address it will automatically switch to the third address, with little or no loss of revenue.

In each of the three workers, fill in the "Sub Account Name. Mining machine number", for example "btcminer.001". The miner number can be filled in freely to distinguish different miners.

4. How to check miner status

You can see the real-time working status of the miner in the Miner Status tab in the miner's backend.

5. How to view earnings

In the backend of the mining pool, you can see your earnings and the status of your miner. Go to "User Panel" to see your earnings and real-time power.
