If the source code is not available don't trust any app that says it can mine, if is not compiled by you could be a scam! Compile your own binaries to be sure!

Here we will show how you can simply compile and run a miner on your Linux PC or server :

Some Tips:

  • Always download mining software from official and trusted sources.
  • Regularly update your mining software to ensure compatibility with the latest network protocols and security patches.
  • Monitor your mining operation regularly for any irregularities or suspicious activity.
  • Consider using a dedicated mining device or computer to avoid potential security risks to your personal or work devices.
  • Ensure you have a reliable internet connection and sufficient power supply to maintain uninterrupted mining operations.
  • Keep your mining address and credentials secure to prevent unauthorized access to your mining rewards.

1: apt install git -y

2: apt install proot -y

3: apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev make g++

4: git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi

5: cd cpuminer-multi


  • Basic *nix build instructions:
  • just use ./build.sh OR
  • ./autogen.sh # only needed if building from git repo
  • ./nomacro.pl # only needed if building on Mac OS X or with Clang
  • ./configure CFLAGS="*-march=native*" --with-crypto --with-curl
  • # Use -march=native if building for a single machine
  • make

7: Start cpuminer :

./cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://pool.vkbit.com:3333 -u [bitcoin_address].[workername] -p x -a sha256d -R 10

Or with thread limitation ( -t 2 ) how many threads (depending on how many CPUs you have on your device)

./cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://pool.vkbit.com:3333 -u [bitcoin_address].[workername] -p x -a sha256d -R 10 -t 2

Next thing is to monitor your miner on our website https://vkbit.com
