5) Where to buy

0a) What to Expect (top)
The BiFury is designed by c-scape and features 2 Bitfury generation chips. It ships in a USPS cardboard sleeve and is wrapped in copious amounts of static paper.

Chips2x Bitfury gen2
Hashrate~5GH stock
Rated Voltage5V
Rated Current0.9A




0b) What You Need (top)
You will need the following:

  • A host windows PC.
  • A 1A+ USB hub (see below).

1) Powering (top)
BiFurys are USB based miners, and as such are powered directly from a USB hub. Hub choice is extremely important when running multiple miners. The USB2
specification is designed to provide up to 0.5A, and USB3 0.9A and so USB3 is strongly recommended.

  • Plug in the USB hub's power adapter into the mains and the USB hub.
  • Plug the BiFury into USB hub.

USB 3 Hub:


2) Cooling (top)
External cooling is not strictly required at stock speeds, but is strongly recommended. This can be done with the use of a 120mm or USB powered fan.

USB fan:



3) Configuration (top)
Configuration is straight forward. Both BFG and CGMiner are currently supported and a Windows based PC is therefore recommended.

  • Plug in a USB cable from your USB hub to your PC.
  • Power the BiFury as above and turn the hub on.
  • No drivers need to be installed.
  • Download BFGMiner and run it.
  • Create a new text file using notepad, with your pool and miner information in it, as below. Save it as a .bat file in the same directory as BFGMiner.
  • Run the bat file to start mining.

Antpool Register!
bfgminer.exe -o -u username_worker -p anypassword
BTCGuild Register!
bfgminer.exe -o -u username_worker -p anypassword
GHash IO Register!
bfgminer.exe -o -u username_worker -p anypassword

4) Troubleshooting (top)
TBD as problems arise.
