BitMinter Client on a MacBook Pro 16" - Will it mine??

Post by macminergod »




Quick little video showing an original Bit Coin mining client known as "BitMinter". It was a Java based app that was popular earlier in the decade 2011-2014. The app itself has an expired certificate so it won't launch in Windows without a little tweaking (you need to install Java, see this post viewto...​ on how to get it running.) The pool officially shut down on 2020-07-01 so you won't be able to use this miner and log in with an account. Visit for the latest crypto mining software and install guides for macOS and Windows Boot Camp. Below is a note from the founders from their website:

"The Bitminter mining pool will shut down mining activities on 2020-07-01. The website will stay up until 2021-06-01 so you can cash out any crypto currency on your account.

It is unfortunate to have to shut down after 9 years of mining. However, to keep going would not be fair to the few miners we have left in the pool. The efforts of miners who have tried to keep the pool going is greatly appreciated. But the pool has shrunk so much that we might never find another block. Attempts to bring big miners onboard did not work out.

A big thank you to everyone who mined with Bitminter over the years. This has been a grand adventure.

The original purpose of Bitminter was to make mining accessible to those who found other mining software difficult to operate. For many of our users mining in this pool was their first experience with bitcoin. I hope you enjoyed it and that you are still part of the bitcoin community.

Hopefully Bitminter was a useful service for you.

Best of luck for the future."
