how do larger miners work


Jacob Pennell asked 6 months ago

I understand how to use smaller minters like the antminer1.6-2gh models. The simple ones that you just plug into a PC and run the program. But how to miners like Avalon 2nd generation models, which are their own enclosed system, work? Does it need to be set up to a PC still or does it just need a monitor and it runs on it’s own?

Hi Jacob,
 
OK, so you’re talking about USB miners here. As far as I know, the Avalon Nano 2 requires the Chrome browser and an installed app on the device it’s plugged into in order to mine.
