#1 How to start

When we designed the new version of minerstat we wanted to make everything as simple as possible for mining managers who need to manage a large number of rigs and want to do it as fast as possible and with total control over any aspect of the mining process. There are several mining management services out there and since we took a different approach, we will guide you through a series of minerstat tutorials, showing you how to use it and where and how to take advantage of minerstat features. In this tutorial, we will start with the basics - how to start with minerstat and what should you need to know before you start.

#2 Overclock with ClockTune™

Besides workers, config editor, and address editor, the most used feature of minerstat is overclocking with ClockTune. We tried to design overclocking in a way that every miner will get the most out of it and that it will be able to be applied as quickly as possible. This is why we decided to use overclocking profiles.

#3 Alerts and triggers

To stay aware of what is going on with your mining rigs, minerstat offers you several alerting options and custom triggers. Both are account-wide and are taken into consideration for each worker separately.

#4 Profit switch and mining calculator

When we decided to implement profit switching we were wondering which approach could we take. Since we are monitoring and management software, we don’t own any pools and don’t have a simple, straightforward way to compare few values and decide regarding them what is the best. What made our solution easier to implement was the fact that we have implemented the address editor.

#5 Team and customers

This tutorial will come in handy for all mining managers that are managing rigs for their clients, investors, for smaller or larger teams, or for those that are sharing the accounts. To have a better overview and to be more organized with your team members and your customers, we allow you to create two types of users - team members and customers.

#6 Balance monitoring

Since all historical and estimated profitabilities depend on theoretically estimated reward and this could differ from the actually earned coins, we also offer a balance monitoring tool for wallets and pools. Free users can monitor up to 2 wallet addresses and 2 pools, paying customers can monitor up to 5 wallet addresses ad 5 pools, and minerstat+ users can monitor the unlimited number of wallets and pools.

#7 Statistics and data exporting

One of the things that are important to some people but entirely uninteresting to others is historical data and statistics. We believe that professional miners and mining managers will find statistics useful and will need detailed data for their business operation more than the hobby miners.

#8 Profit switch with Zergpool

After our existing clients and early access users tested our profit switch function, we have received multiple wishes to add support for multialgo auto-exchange pools. We have already implemented a profit switch function that works on coins and NiceHash, so we decided to give such pools a try as well. Now minerstat supports Zergpool algorithm mining with auto-exchange to your BTC address.

#9 How to organize and use groups

When adding a new worker to the minerstat dashboard, the worker is automatically assigned to two groups denoted by the worker’s type and system. These two groups are required for minerstat to faster distinguish which type of worker and system you are using. But beside these two groups, you can assign custom groups to your worker.

#10 Profit switch with Mining Pool Hub

One of the most wanted pools was definitely Mining Pool Hub which allows you to auto-exchange mined coins to any currency. For easier interpretation their API displays rewards in BTC, that’s why we show you the reward in BTC on the minerstat dashboard as well. In this tutorial, we will show you how to set profit switch on Mining Pool Hub with auto-exchange to your favorite cryptocurrency.

#11 Billing and payments

When we designed our billing plans and system we have tried to keep all kinds of miners in mind. That’s why we offer different things in different packages with possible discounts and fair upgrading. A list of all features and plans can be found at our pricing page or at the billing page on the minerstat dashboard.

#12 Profit switch with Block Masters

Block Masters is multialgo, multicoin, autoexchange pool that doesn’t require registration and offers more than 20 algorithms. Although, the payouts can be issued in different cryptocurrencies, our profit switch implementation will select the payout in BTC - which is also guaranteed way to get paid by pool in case the payouts in other cryptocurrencies are delayed. All BTC payouts are automatic and issued every 5 hours for balances above 0.005 BTC and every Sunday for balances above 0.0005 BTC. The fee for mining on Block Masters is 0.25%.

#13 Worker configuration

One of the things that are different about minerstat is a unique approach to worker configuration. When we designed it, our goal was to make a system that is: easy to use, easy to apply to multiple workers and/or groups, easy and quick to apply changes, advanced to the point that both hobby miners and farm managers can tweak it to fit their needs, and that offers support for a wide range of mining clients.

#14 Control room

As we are working closely with mining managers, we listen to their struggles from the field. One of the key elements when running a crypto mining farm is taking care of a proper room cooling and identifying exactly where the heat is problematic since it might quickly affect a part of if not even the whole mining operation. So we have listened and designed a visual heat map called Control room.

#15 Scheduler

One of the latest tools we added to minerstat is scheduler. Like the name itself tells, scheduler allows you to schedule your mining operation. The purpose of implementing this function was to give mining managers a fair way to get their mining manager’s fee. But besides that, the scheduler can be used for other purposes as well. In this tutorial, we will show you how to set it and present you few use cases where scheduler might serve you.

#16 Profit switch with NiceHash

A lot of miners aren’t aware that you can also mine at NiceHash with other mining software instead of NiceHash Miner or Excavator. Well, you can. Even more, minerstat allows you to use profit switch between all of the NiceHash’s pools. As they are offering software for mining at their pools, you might wonder how and when could you benefit from using some other software to mine at NiceHash. In this tutorial, you will learn all that and more.

#17 Locator and bulk imports

With more and more ASIC farms joining minerstat, we decided to implement a new feature that will make the process of adding workers to your minerstat dashboard easier and faster. The new software is called Locator and in this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of setting it up. This tutorial is not meant only for ASIC owners but can benefit GPU farms managers as well. If you have a large number of workers to add, you will find the fastest way to add them in this tutorial.

#18 Profit switch for ASICs

In the core, profit switching for ASIC is exactly the same as all the other profit switching procedures. The only difference is, that there aren’t so many different options as ASICs usually mine only one or few algorithms and that you need to be a little bit more careful when setting up the config. But don’t worry - in this tutorial you will learn how and then you will be able to always mine the most profitable coin at any given moment.
