- Ex. to mine BTG in suprnova:
More information about the parameters can be found using the commands:
./miniZ --help ./miniZ -h
To mine BTG with all GPUs in btgpool:
For BTG mining with GPU 0 and 2, after 2 minutes, port 4040:
./miniZ -cd 0 2 --url=GdkQGJmbdvx2UBRhomUAXwdUbKJySXzubo.email@example.com:4040
Same as the previous one, but specifying the second pool + user + port:
./miniZ -cd 0 2 --url=GdkQGJmbdvx2UBRhomUAXwdUbKJySXzubo.firstname.lastname@example.org:4040 --email@example.com:8866
