I assume you have downloaded Bitflate binaries. If not, see this article:

Bitflate Binaries

In this post, I’ll show you how to mine Bitflate coins. This is my current setup. We currently don’t have any pool support. I do solo mining. If you already have ASIC mining hardware, you can use your own mining setup with Bitflate Core client. I show simple and low cost mining setup.

First, we need to buy some hardware. I’ve got mine from 419mining.com and Amazon.

GekkoScience NewPac USB Stickminer

Pluggable USB 2.0 7-Port Hub


Next, we need cgminer software in addition to run mining. We’ll use a modified cgminer version from GekkoScience NewPac vendor vthoang/cgminer. I modified the code to enable proper solo mining. Please use this cgminer version. Otherwise, you will not get any coin reward.


# clone the code tree
git clone https://github.com/bitflate/cgminer
# go to r606 branch, this branch has the latest code for GekkoScience NewPac
git checkout r606
# follow the build instruction on your OS on the README page
# I show the instruction for Ubuntu here
sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libtool pkg-config \
                             libcurl4-openssl-dev libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev \
CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall -march=native" ./configure <options>

After building cgminer, we need to generate an address to solo mining to. We do this through bitflate-cli.

./bin/bitflate-cli getnewaddress "myaddress"

Plug all the hardware together into your machine. Start Bitflate Core client. We are ready to mine with this command.

./cgminer -o http://localhost:7332 -u [username] -p [password] --btc-address [address generated above]


On Windows, you need to perform cgminer build. The build instruction is here:

Windows Build Instruction

For simplicity, we’ve created a Windows build for you to use on x86-64 machines. You can download it here:

Windows Build

Prior to running cgminer.exe, you need to install zadig WinUSB driver. You can download it here:


cgminer.exe -o http://localhost:7332 -u [username] -p [password] --btc-address [address generated above]
