Please refer to the steps as following:
1) Purchase mining machines
Purchase your mining machines on official websites of mining machine manufacturers such as Bitmain.com. These websites are safer with relatively comprehensive after-sales service to help users avoid being cheated.
2) Start up mining machines
Imagine the mining machine as a computer, plug it in and connect to the network to start the miner.
3) Connect machines to the ViaBTC pool
Download and run the software that manufacturers provided to get the mining IP address on your PC (It should be on the same LAN as the miner), and then visit this IP address to enter the Miner Configuration. Below is the Miner Configuration of an Antminer, and you need to connect the machines to the pool.
