How to mine Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?
Bitcoin Cash is a payment system and a cryptocurrency of the same name with the informal designation BCH, which appeared on August 1, 2017 as a fork of Bitcoin. Like the "big brother", the Bitcoin Cash cryptocurrency is both a payment system and a means of payment. BCH 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 mining using the SHA-256 algorithm at the moment are ASIC devices.
✅ Asic devices use the SHA-256 protocol for BCH mining as efficiently as possible.
❌ Bitcoin Cash cannot be efficiently mined using CPU or GPU cards.
💡 Some ASIC models may be unprofitable due to price changes of Bitcoin Cash.
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.

Then click on the Settings button
Add your wallet address. You can use any official wallet or use the wallet of an exchange that has Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
Then click "Save"
Do not forget to confirm your wallet via personal email
Hardware configuration (using the example of BCH)
How do I log in to Asic (in the web panel)?
How to set up a connection to the pool?
Go to the Asic tab (Miner configuration).
And fill in all three pools, where:
URL is a stratum of servers (All three pool must be filled)
stratum+tcp://gate.emcd.io:5555 - Russia
stratum+tcp://eu.emcd.io:5555 - Europe
stratum+tcp://kz.emcd.io:5555 - Kazakhstan
stratum+tcp://cn.emcd.io:5555 - China
stratum+tcp://us.emcd.io:5555 - America
stratum+tcp://ir.emcd.io:5555 - Iran
Where the port is the code of the pool coin (example for BCH: stratum+tcp://gate.emcd.io:5555)
Fill in all three stratums closest to you
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.
