2.8" Nerdminer Installation Guide

  1. Connect the NerdMiner to a USB port using the connection cable. Once the device is connected, the WiFi message will be displayed on the screen after a short wait. Scan the QR code or open the WiFi settings on your smartphone/PC and select "NerdMinerAP."

Use the password "MineYourCoins" displayed on the screen for the connection.

  1. After the NerdMiner is connected, the "WiFiManager" will appear on your smartphone/PC. Now, select the "Configure WiFi" button.

  2. Choose your WiFi connection and enter your WiFi password (if the available WiFi is not automatically displayed, press the Refresh button).

In the "Your BTC address" field, insert an on-chain Bitcoin address from your wallet (IMPORTANT: delete "yourBtcAddress" from the line before inserting).

Your Bitcoins will be paid directly to this BTC address when a block is found. It is preferable to use a Bitcoin address from a hardware wallet!

If you don't have a Bitcoin wallet yet but still want to use your NerdMiner, you should install a wallet (e.g., www.electrum.org) before setting up the NerdMiner and copy a Bitcoin address from there. Alternatively, a Paperwallet (available in our shop) can also be used.

In the "TimeZone fromUTC" field, enter "2" for Central European Summer Time or "1" for Central European Winter Time. Save the entries using the "Save" button.

Once the NerdMiner has adopted the settings, it should automatically connect to the WiFi and start mining.


If the same Bitcoin address is registered for multiple NerdMiners, this NerdMiner model will display the number of connected workers and their total hash rate.
