Quick start guide for mining BTG

**Here is a quick guide for mining Bitcoin Gold (BTG) under WIndows, with several different miner options. This was updates October 2020.

Tools you may need:

If you need an alternative to winzip to unzip your files, 7-zip works well.

We will need a program other than notepad to use for editing the .cfg file. You can use other ones, I use this one.

Here are several choices for a miner program.

Gminer - Nvidia**

Download directly from Here

Get the most recent version. As of Oct 9,2020 The newest version is 2.27

Save the file.
If you are saving the windows version it will look like this;

I like to create a folder (Gminer) on the desktop, but it is up to you where to make the folder. copy the downloaded version to that folder.

Now unzip the file with 7-zip.

This is what it looks like. You can see that there is a preconfigured .bat file that is highlighted.

You need to modify it. Right click and edit.

** make sure you do it correctly! Spacing is important and make sure your wallet address is exactly correct.

Make sure you put your own wallet and worker name.

Make sure to save as mine_btg.bat and save file type ( change from Text Documents to All Files)

Then Save

MiniZ-Nvidia

*Don’t forget, you will need the password to download.

Again create a folder , your choice of location and put the MiniZ zip folder in the new folder you had just created and right click and unzip in that folder

Simple miner (SMOS) -Nvidia

I really like SMOS, it does cost $2 permonth per rig. but it is pretty easy to set up and run.

You will need a USB stick 16gb or more.

I hope this quick guide helps you to get up and running.

Stay tuned , next post we will talk about overclocking settings and results.
