Function 1 – Bitcoin Solo Miner

AntRouter R1 was designed to mine in AntPools solo mode. If you find a block, you’ll receive around 25 bitcoins.  To get this huge reward, you’ll need to keep your R1 online and working correctly, and you’ll need some good fortune. Good Luck!

After linking the R1 to your to Antpool Registered Email Account, the device can mine continuously as long as it has power and an internet connection. You will be notified by email when you find a block.

Please log into www.antpool.com to check the linking with your account. If you have linked your device correctly, you will see “AntRouter” under “Miners” on the navbar. To link it, you need to power on the R1, and find the Wi-Fi access point named “antRouter” in the wireless access list on your computer or phone. Connect to it and open the management page in your browser with the URL “R1.bm”.The default login credentials are username “root” and password “root”. On the management page, click “Miners” on the navbar, input your Antpool registered e-mail NOT YOUR SUB ACCOUNT OR ANTPOOL ACCOUNT ID YOU USE IN YOUR MINER CONFIGURATION, then click “Save & Apply” to save.

If you don’t yet have a Antpool Account, you’ll need to register one first on www.antpool.com.
