How do the USB ASIC miners work? Do you just plug them into a power source and they start mining? Do you have to set them up for a first time? Do you need to use a mining program still?

1 Answer 1


USB ASIC miners require some sort of control program that sends work to the miners and collects the results. You set them up in that control program. BFGMiner is one such program.
