Mining with ASICs is very similar to mining with GPUs with a few exceptions. Getting began goes after the same course spil GPU mining. Go after the steps on the “How to mine Bitcoins” pagina to set up your private wallet spil well spil your account with a mining pool of your choice. The primary difference is that you will have to use different mining software with ASICs spil GUI Miner does not have ASIC support. The program that I recommend is called BFG Miner and can be downloaded from the BFG miner download pagina. Scroll down until you reach the more latest releases and open look for the release that corresponds with the operating system you are using. You may have to mouse overheen and look at the status folder to see the finish verkeersopstopping name.

After connecting your ASIC to your machine and permitting the hardware to install on your rekentuig, open the bfgminer application.
Once the program is commenced, it will prompt you for the URL for your pool. Te my case, I use stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 for Slush’s Pool, but thesis have a tendency to switch from time to time, and if you are incapable to connect, check your pools instructions for the updated address.

I name my workers with a number, so my user name is formatted spil USERNAME.1 with a period separating the user name and the worker ID. After that, you will be prompted for your password. Each worker has it’s own password, and if you are using Slush’s Pool, it will be listed right next to your worker name when you loom into your account.
Once you are logged ter, the program will embark mining with all available devices, including GPUs. I personally choose not to mine with GPUs so I turned mine off. To do this, click “M” on your keyboard and use your arrow keys to select the device you wish to modify and click the “D” key to disable any devices you do not with to mine with. Succesnummer the “Enter” key to terugwedstrijd to the main screen.
Eventually, from the main screen, kasstuk the “S” key to come in the settings spijskaart and “W” to write a config verkeersopstopping that will store your mining information so you don’t have to type it te each time you restart the program.
The end result should look something like this:
Spil you can see, I am mining with a Butterfly Labs Little Single SC that is delivering overheen 30 GH/s. I will be adding another Little Single and a Single SC ter the near future.
