Like other GPU-mined currencies, Flux uses the Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism. But the biggest advantage of Flux is the ZelHash algorithm, which provides ASIC and FPGA resistance to avoid excessive hash power centralization.
So, in this guide, I will show you how to mine Flux with your GPU. Do note that this will only work in Windows and Linux.

Mining profit calculators
Before you start mining, you can use the mining calculator below to know your mining profit. Enter the hash rate of your computer and find out how much Flux coin you will potentially be able to earn. FLUX (Zelhash) is measured in Sol/s.
What are the Parallel assets of FLUX?
So, what does it all mean?
For miners, this means that you’ll earn a higher payout than ordinary. That’s why FLUX mining is profitable.
And what’s cool is that no additional settings are required to receive rewards for parallel assets. It’s just that after each distribution to the wallet, you will receive a parallel reward with assets.
Start mining flux
Flux mining is really easy; follow the instructions below to get started.
Step 1 – Create a wallet
Download the official Flux wallet and then simply follow the instructions to create your own wallet.
Step 2 – Install mining software – GMiner
Download and extract the archive to the desired folder.
Step 3 – Edit the .bat file.
After extracting the archive, you should notice different batch files. Find the mine_zelcash.bat file in the folder and right-click on this file, then select Edit.
Step 4 – Enter configuration settings
Once you’ve opened the .bat file, you just need to enter the following configuration settings.
Settings for Gminer:
miner.exe --algo 125_4 --server YOUR_MINING_POOL --port PORT_OF_YOUR_MINING_POOL --user YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS.WORKERNAME pause
Here’s what it should look like:
Step 5 – Choose a mining pool
For the majority of users solo mining is not quite profitable so you need to select a mining pool from this link and pick the one that suits you best.
Now, simply replace
PORT_OF_YOUR_MINING_POOL with the address of the mining pool that you’ve chosen.
Step 6 – Enter a wallet address
If you can’t find the wallet address in your account, simply click on the FLUX coin on the FLUX wallet app and then click the Receive button. There you will find your wallet address.
So now just replace
YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your own wallet address.
Step 8 – Start mining
Lastly, save the changes and run the file to start mining FLUX coins right now!
