Mining for beginners

On this page you will find all the informations you need to start mining BitcoinZ.

As you already know BitcoinZ is based on Equihash algorithm. Every mining softwares are not able to mine cryptocurrencies based on Equihash algorithm. So, because we are nice people, we give you them on a BitcoinZ platter !
