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.

3. How to start mining BTC on EMCD?

The first thing you need to do is register on the EMCD website. To register and start making money, follow the link - https://emcd.io/pool/dashboard/registration

4. How to sign up?

  • Username is the name that you will use each time you log in to the pool

  • Email - your email address

  • Password - the password to log in to your personal account, do not forget to make it complicated (with signs and numbers), then repeat the password.

Click the check mark and agree to the terms of service and then click on the "Sign up" button. A confirmation email will be sent to your email address. Find this letter on the email that you specified during the sing up process and follow the link. If you didn't find the email, then check the spam.

5. Adding a wallet

To specify a wallet:

  1. Select BTC in the upper-left corner

  2. Then click on the Settings button

  3. Add your wallet address. You can use any official wallet or use the wallet of an exchange that has Bitcoin (BTC).

  4. Then click "Save"

6. Hardware configuration (using the example of BTC)

  • How do I log in to Asic (in the web panel)?

Find the IP address of the device via IP Scan or BTC Tools and then enter this IP address in the address bar of the browser.

  • 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.
