How to set up Bitmain Antminer?

You can monitor and manage any of the Bitmain's Antminers on minerstat with ASIC Hub SSH or Non-SSH. Since Bitmain (along with other manufacturers) started to disabling SSH access with the latest firmwares, we suggest to use ASIC Hub (Non-SSH) for all of your Bitmain's Antminers.

If you are using any other firmware that supports SSH access, you can use either ASIC Hub (SSH) or ASIC Hub (Non-SSH), whichever is more suitable for your needs.

ASIC Hub (Non-SSH)

ASIC Hub (Non-SSH) is supported on all Bitmain's Antminer ASICs.

  • Installed on a separate computer (Linux, Mac, Raspberry Pi, or virtual machine on Windows), which works as a server and needs to be online all the time;
  • Only one install required for multiple machines;
  • Config change is applied without a reboot;
  • Requires uninstall only from one machine if you don't want to use it anymore.

Installation process

  1. Add new worker on minerstat dashboard.
  2. Open Linux, Mac, or Raspberry Pi computer and enter the following code to the terminal.
    Linux/Raspberry Pi: wget -O - https://minerstat.com/nonssh-install | bash
    Mac: curl -L -s https://minerstat.com/nonssh-install | bash -s
  3. Follow the steps in the wizard.
  4. ASIC should be online in few moments.
  5. To monitor and manage additional ASICs, you only need to add new workers to the dashboard.

ASIC Hub (SSH)

ASIC Hub (SSH) is supported only on Bitmain's Antminer ASICs that use firmware with SSH support.

  • Installed directly on ASIC;
  • Bulk install available from Windows, Linux, and Mac;
  • Config change is followed by a reboot;
  • Requires uninstall from each machine if you don't want to use it anymore.

Installation process

  1. Add new worker on minerstat dashboard.
  2. Use PuTTY or Termius to SSH login to your ASIC.
  3. Run the installation script with your access key and worker's name: cd /tmp && wget -O install.sh http://static.minerstat.farm/github/install.sh && chmod 777 *.sh && sh install.sh ACCESS_KEY WORKER_NAME
  4. ASIC should be online in few moments.
  5. To monitor and manage additional ASICs, you need to install ASIC Hub on other machines as well or use bulk install scripts.

Worker's config

After ASIC connects to minerstat for the first time, the config will be loaded and you will be able to manage and monitor it through your minerstat dashboard.
