Normally, you do not need to write --pers=BgoldPoW because this is the default personalisation string. However, this may depend on the pool.

Also, be aware that some pools do not support --pers=auto, in this case it is better to not specify --pers at all or use --smart-pers.

For more information about miniZ command line arguments, please refer to Usage page.

Happy BTG mining!
