Bitcoin Rigs Everything you need to get started on Bitcoin mining! Bitcoin mining with Block Erupter USB miner and BFGMiner I’ve previously made a post on how to use your Block Erupters using CGMiner, personally it worked for me when I was running a few erupters on a hub but as I increased my mining network and I started to use hundreds of erupters, I noticed CGMiner became a little bit buggy. How to setup cgminer for bitcoin mining was just informed the download doesn’t seem to be working, I’ve uploaded the copy I use which is BFGMiner 3.
Download and install the driver for you Block Erupter. Plug in your Block Erupters, Each Erupter requires at least 0. 5A at 5V if you’re plugging them into a USB hub. Find the folder where you save BFGMiner and unzip the files. You can then move the shortcut to your desktop for easier access. To access your BFGMiner, double click on the shortcut you made and your miner should start.
You should read though the README. TXT file that came with the BFGMiner zip file to get to know how the miner works and it’s functions if you’re not familiar with BFGMiner program.
