  • How to mine Siacoin SC with Bitmain Antminer A3(815G,Blake 2b hash algorithm) -Ant Pool

    Written by admin on January 18, 2018 in Guides

    Note:
    1, It is suggested the power supply has about 20%  more power consumption than the mining machine’s.
    2, The router or switch connected to mining machine should has no POE function.
    3, The mine can only be connected to the router or switch by cable.
    4, The recommended temperature is 10 to 35 degrees.
    5, The recommended environment humidity is below 65%.
    6, Pay attention to dust, so as not to corrode the operation board or cause the heat of mining machine cannot be scattered.
    7, One M broadband can take 150 miners.
    8, A monthly use of a mining machine about 500M.
    9, For the Blake2b algorithm currency, it is suggested to mine SC-cloud reserve currency.

    First, check the machine

    Second, wiring inspection
    1, connect the computing board

    A3 has three computing boards, each computing board has three PCIE interfaces, each PCIE interface should be connected to the 12V power cord, a total of nine 12V line. When they are inserted to the right position, you will normally hear a “click” sound.
    2, connect the control board

    A3’s control board has a PCIE interface, and it needs just one 12V-PCIE power cord. When they are inserted to the right position, you will normally hear a “click” sound.
    3,network cable connection

    Check the network cable interface, then pay attention to the direction, the crystal head must be inserted in place, when it is in place you will normally hear a “click” sound.
    4, check the cable if it is loose or not inserted in place
    5, check the fan plug if it is loose or not inserted in place
    6, When you insert the computer board and power cord of control board, pay attention to the direction of the buckle, if it is reverse, the operation board or control board will be burned.

    Third, set the mining machine
    1, check the miner’s IP

    When the miner starts to run and the miner’s green lights begin to flash, you can find the mine machine’s IP, the method is as follows
    Download link https://pan.baidu.com/s/1cNp5DW Password: hkt2
    a, open the software, click “Start”

    b, press the IP button on the miner

    c, feedback of miner IP showed on the computer
    Note: The miner and computer must be in the same network, otherwise the computer cannot receive miner’s feedback signal.

    2, After entering the mine machine IP, the miner can be found in the webpage, enter the obtained IP address, press Enter, a dialog box will pop up, enter the user name and password which are both root.

    3, modify the miner’s IP, click “Network”, enter the machine IP settings page, select “Static”, in the following four boxes, enter IP, subnet mask, gateway, DNS, and then click “Save & Apply” After the page buffer is completed, proceed to the next step.
    Note:

    a, if the number of miners is 3 or less, you can skip this step. (less than 3 pieces of miners , three is not necessarily set static IP)
    b, if you do not know how to fill out the DNS and gateway, check here https://jingyan.baidu.com/article/fec4bce24fec0df2608d8b6f.html

    4, set the mining pool and Miner

    Click “Miner Configuration” into the mining pool and miners configuration page, which URL is filled address of mining pool, name of the miner, and don’t move the Password. Click Save & Apply to save. (This step is to connect the mining machine to the mining pool)
    Note:

    a, where the default is to use ant pool, if you want to use other pools, please modify it.

    b, fhq is a sub-account, followed by the ID number of mining machines and network segment, adding together is the name of miners.
    c, miner’s name and IP address is the same, so it is easy to troubleshoot failure of mining machine. See the miners in the picture below, the latter part is the network segment of mining machines and IP.

    5, Till here the configuration of the miners is completed, about 5 to 30 minutes, you can see the effective miners in the mining pool.

    Since the antpool took down their Siacoin pool for now, any other pool addresses that can be used with Antminer A3?
