Mining Bitcoins requires special software known as a Bitcoin Miner. BTC Guild recommends cgminer (or bfgminer) for serious miners.
After you register on BTC Guild, you have a single worker created automatically, named (username)_1. Workers do not require passwords to mine at BTC Guild. We recommend entering '123' as your password when connecting, since some miners do not function without a password
If you run multiple computers ("mining rigs"), we recommend that you create a new worker for each computer. This will make it easier to monitor your computers through the BTC Guild website and identify possible problems.
How to Connect: CGminer/BFGminer
There is an in-depth guide on how to connect using USB Block Erupters in its own section (link at top of this page). While some of these steps may not be needed anymore, some parts of that process, such as creating the shortcut and adding custom flags, may still be helpful for other hardware.
