Want to be rewarded BCDX? Start mining now!

Mining helps sustain our blockchain network by using your compute resource to act as a ledger.
In return, you are rewarded BCDX for your contribution.

Since Bitcoin DX is fairly young, mining rewards currently are HIGH.


The below instructions have been prepared for running CGMiner on Microsoft Windows OS.

You can download a pre-prepared version of CGMiner here. Otherwise, follow the below instructions if you wish to download from source and start mining on a Windows PC.

Is it safe?

Yes. See per CGMiner FAQs:
Cgminer is being packaged with other trojan scripts and some antivirus software is falsely accusing cgminer.exe as being the actual virus, rather than whatever it is being packaged with. If you installed cgminer yourself, then you do not have a virus on your computer. Complain to your antivirus software company. They seem to be flagging even source code now from cgminer as viruses, even though text source files can’t do anything by themself.

Our recommendation is to always ensure you are using a secure workstation to store your Bitcoin DX wallet and to add an AV exclusion if required.
