Flux, Your Gateway to a Decentralized World

FluxOS is a revolutionary second-layer operating system that allows hardened dockerized apps to run on Flux’s fully decentralized computational network in an efficient, safe, and optimal way while providing API access and other core features.

Flux is the Gateway to Blockchain

Flux is the cryptocurrency that powers the Flux ecosystem and is used for purchasing resources, collateralizing nodes, and fueling transactions on FluxOS, rewarding both miners for validating transactions and FluxNode operators for providing computational resources.

The New Web3 for a Decentralized Internet

A comprehensive suite of decentralized computing services and blockchain-as-a-service solutions. The Flux ecosystem consists of: Fluxnodes’ decentralized infrastructure, FluxOS cloud operating system, Zelcore self-custody multi-asset wallet and blockchain app suite, and finally the Flux blockchain for on-chain governance, economics, and parallel assets to provide interoperability with other blockchains and DeFi access.

Flux provides the critical, high availability infrastructure for the New Internet. Projects and development teams are not forced to rely on the Flux blockchain to utilize FluxOS, so they have access to necessary infrastructure while maintaining all the unique properties of their own chains. Flux makes up one important piece of a well-balanced distributed computing portfolio focused on the next generation of the Internet.

Leveraging the Power of Multiple Blockchains

Innovation and expansion are key factors in the Flux network. The proposed new economic model comes with a strong approach to DeFi and Web 3.0.

The Flux project has implemented a mechanism of parallel assets that will live on other blockchains, Flux will capitalize on the beneficial features of each blockchain without depending on any of them.


The Flux network is fully decentralized making it highly resilient to both system failure and outside attempts at censorship. Nodes are collateralized and managed by individual Flux node operators, ensuring spread is fully decentralized.


FluxOS is fully compatible with any blockchain and any hardened dockerized applications. You can run any application on any blockchain on FluxOS.


FluxOS applications are redundantly spread across the node network with automatic failover to a new node if one becomes unavailable.

API backed

Deployment and management of applications launched on Flux is API or UI backed, allowing for seamless integration with your services.

Now that we know the details about Flux, let’s get to mining some FLUX!

Flux (FLUX)Mining Pool: Those who have no idea about mining can easily start mining by watching this video.

Step 1 — Create Flux (FLUX) Wallet Address

Before you Start Mining, you need a wallet address. There are various options for having an FLUX wallet.

Exchange Wallet: Binance, KuCoin,, Bittrex, TradeOgre

Step 2 — Download Mining Software

There are many miner applications where you can mining Flux. Below we have explained in detail how to organize them.

Step 3 — Edit the bat File

lolMiner v1.37+ (Windows, Linux, AMD)

Create flux-herominers.bat file and copy / paste example below.

lolMiner.exe --coin ZEL --pool --user YOUR_FLUX_WALLET_ADDRESS.YOUR_WORKER_NAME

GMiner v2.73+ (Windows, Linux, NVIDIA)

Create flux-herominers.bat file and copy / paste example below.

miner.exe --algo 125_4 --server --user YOUR_FLUX_WALLET_ADDRESS --pass YOUR_WORKER_NAME

MiniZ v1.8y3+ (Windows, Linux, NVIDIA)

Create flux-herominers.bat file and copy / paste example below.

miniz.exe --par=125,4 --pers=ZelProof --extra

Happy Mining.
