BitcoinX (Bitcoin X: https://www.bcx.org/) is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain at block height 498888. After such forking, 1 BTC will acquire 10,000 BCX candies, and with Blake2b algorithm, this enables the use of GPU or CPU for mining (due to different block structures, A3 and other ASIC miners cannot be used for mining BCX).

1.Acquire wallet address
The first thing to mine BCX is to have a BCX receiving address. A wallet address can be acquired through the following ways:
https://github.com/bitcoinx-project/bitcoinx/releases(Full-node wallet)
https://fir.im/bitgowalletios(Light wallet)
https://www.kex.com/(Exchange)

2.Acquire mining software
BCX mining software, including ccminer (more stable) and gominer (BCX’s official version), can be acquired through the following links:
VVpool version: https://pan.baidu.com/s/1jKjBClo
Original official version: https://github.com/bitcoinx-project/gominer/releases

3.Set up parameters in mining software and start mining
1)gominer
Download gominer for BCX mining software, unzip it, open the folder and find “vvpool.bat”,

Right click on “vvpool.bat” and select Edit, open the following window and set up parameters as follows:
gominer.exe -url stratum+tcp://bcx.vvpool.com:5660 -user Wallet Address. Worker Number. pause
See the figure below. Check BCX mining pool address and set up the worker’s own BCX receiving address and worker number. If there are many miners, worker numbers are for distinguishing different miners, so don’t miss that point. When making any modification, modify a corresponding character only. Do not delete any spacing or punctuation. Save it after completing modification.

Explanations for specific parameters are as follows:
gominer.exe is to run the mining software with the file name of “gominer.exe” under this folder directory
-url is to set up the mining pool address and port to be linked, which can be an ip or domain name. By default, here fill in the mining pool address of vvpool (overseas partner of F2Pool) bcs.vvpool.com and the port is 5660
-user means a mining user name, i.e. a worker number. This is critically important. If you make any mistake in filling this, you may not be able to get any income. The BCX wallet address, which needs to be set up here, shall be changed into the recharge address given to you by the exchange or your own wallet address in official mining.
Besides, worker numbers are used for distinguishing computing power among different miners. Please fill in different numbers for different miners for the convenience of maintenance and distinguishing.
To edit any other information, please read the “readme” document which is officially provided carefully.

Double click to run the “vvpool.bat” file and start mining.

2)ccminer
Download ccminer for BCX mining software, unzip it, open the folder and find “vvpool.bat”
bcx-3.png
Right click on “vvpool.bat” and select Edit, open the following window and set up parameters as follows:
ccminer.exe -a blake2s -o stratum+tcp://bcx.vvpool.com:5661 -u Wallet_ Address. Worker_Number

See the figure below:
bcx-4.png
ccminer is to run the mining software at the name of ccminer under this folder directory
-a is to select the algorithm for mining
-o is to set up the mining pool address and port to be linked.
-u is to fill in the wallet address for receiving mining income and worker numbers for distinguishing miners

After completing setup, save it, double click to run the “vvpool.bat” file and start mining.

4.Miner monitoring and how to view income
To view BCX miner status and daily income, please visit VVPOOL’s official website (http://www.vvpool.com).

Enter the BCX address for set up for mining in the search box on the page and click to view. Then, you can view miner status and your income.

5.How to set up auto start of a mining program at boot
Add batch processing tools in the mining software to boot startup and this enables auto start at reboot.
Set up mining software by following the aforesaid requirements. Select “Create a Shortcut” to create a shortcut for the mining software and paste this shortcut to the folder at C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartUp. (The ProgramData folder is a hidden folder and you need to select “Show Hidden Folders” in “View” to view it)
