1.Acquire wallet address
As similar to the mining of such currencies as ETH and ZEC, the first thing for BPA GPU mining is to have a BPA receiving address. A BPA wallet can be acquired in the following way:
2.Acquire mining software
Because BPA uses the same mining algorithm as ZEC, its mining software is consistent with that of ZEC temporarily.
If you haven’t mined ZEC, you can acquire GPU through the following links:

Link: https://pan.baidu.com/s/1o865WaI Password: qj5j (A Card Worker Software)
minerOS miner manager:
www.mineros.cn is the hashrate managing system based on Linux, with built-in 3rd party original mining software, including Claymore, ccminer, EWBF, etc. which supports both N card and A card
3.Set up parameters in mining software and start mining
1)Mining using N Card
After acquiring the mining software, unzip it and find the “start.bat” file.
Right click on the “start.bat” file and select “Edit”:
Open the following window and see the figure below for parameters. To set up BPA mining, you need to check a mining pool address and set up the worker’s own BPA 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:
miner is to run the mining software under this folder directory
- server is to set up the mining pool server to be linked, which can be an ip or domain name. By default, here fill in the BPA mining pool (overseas partner of F2Pool) bpa.vvpool.com
- port refers to a port number and it is 3055 by default here
- 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 BPA 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.
Neglect the subsequent parameters.
After completing the setup of mining parameters, save the “start.bat” file, double click to run it and start mining. If everything goes well with running, the following interface will appear.
2)Mining using A Card
After acquiring the mining software, unzip it and find the “config” file.
Double click to open the file. See the figure below. Check BPA mining pool address and port number, and set up the worker’s own BPA 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.
After that, find the mining program file “ZecMiner64”, double click it to start and start mining.
If everything goes well with setup, the following mining interface will appear:
Please note that because the A Card Worker Software for BPA is just upgraded from ZEC, the currency displayed in this software is still ZEC. This won’t be of any influence. It would be OK as long as computing power appears, similar words like Total Speed：859.319H/s in the above figure.
4.Miner monitoring and how to view income
To view BPA miner status and daily income, please visit VVPOOL’s official website.
Visit the website: http://www.vvpool.com
Enter the BPA address set up for mining in the search box in top right corner on the page and click to view. Enter the BCD address set up for mining in the search box on the top right corner on the page and click to view, and you can view miner status and 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 startup batch processing files for the mining software by following the above requirements (in this case, it refers to the start.bat file).
Select “Create a Shortcut” 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)
Reboot your computer and the mining software can auto start at boot.
