Ethereum Classic (ETC) has grown significantly in hashrate since Ethereum merged to the proof of stake consensus mechanism. Ever since, a series of companies have focused their efforts to build high power ETC specific ASIC mining machines. One of those companies has been Bitmain, who also has invested $10,000,000 in a grants fund to finance projects on the now largest proof of work smart contracts blockchain in the world.
In this post we show the Bitmain Antminer E9 Pro ASIC miner unboxing, connection, setup, how to start mining, and stats.
In this video we show the unboxing of the Antminer E9 Pro, its size, parts, and needed accessories.
In this segment we explain how to connect the power, how to connect it to your local WiFi router, and to fire it up.
In this segment we explain how to associate your computer to your Antminer E9 Pro thorugh your local area network using the provided IP address, and we show you the user interface to get it ready to connect it to the Antpool mining pool.
Here we show how to point your Antminer E9 Pro to the Antpool ETC mining pool, how to open an account at Antpool, and how to configure your ASIC machine with the correct URLs.
Finally, we show you how your stats will look both on the Antpool dashboard and the Antminer E9 Pro user interface, and we close with a view of the ASIC miner and its setup at home or office.
