1. How to mine Bitcoin (BTC)?
Bitcoin can be mined only using the SHA-256 algorithm, which is an integral part of the Bitcoin protocol, so you should take into account that the equipment you choose supports this algorithm.
As an example: the most popular devices for bitcoin mining at the moment are ASIC devices. These devices make the most effective use of this protocol for mining BTC. (or the most profitable for mining BTC)
💡 Some ASIC models may be unprofitable due to changes in the price of bitcoins.
2. How to choose a device?
Your income and the payback rate of the device directly depend on the hashrate (this is a unit of measurement of the power of computing equipment for mining or blockchain network), which can be achieved on a specific ASIC model, and the cost of electricity. Therefore, when you pick an ASIC, be sure to check the combination of overclocking profiles and the electricity consumed, try to find the most profitable option. Lower electricity prices mean lower operating costs and better profitability.

How to set up a connection to the pool?
Go to the Asic tab (Miner configuration).
7. And fill in all three pools, where:
URL is a stratum of servers (All three pool must be filled)
stratum+tcp://gate.emcd.io:3333 - Russia
stratum+tcp://eu.emcd.io:3333 - Europe
stratum+tcp://kz.emcd.io:3333 - Kazakhstan
stratum+tcp://cn.emcd.io:3333 - China
stratum+tcp://us.emcd.io:3333 - America
stratum+tcp://ir.emcd.io:3333 - Iran
Where the port is the code of the pool coin (example for BTC: stratum+tcp://gate.emcd.io:3333)
Fill in all three stratums closest to you (Example: as shown in the picture)
Worker - the name of your worker (the user name that you specified at the beginning of your sing up) in the format "your name".worker (without quotes). You can also copy it in your personal account in the connection tab
Password - enter any password
Now your devices will appear in your personal account via the link.
The equipment takes 15-20 minutes to update the data about the first shares received by the pool. As soon as this happens, the equipment will be displayed on the website.
