I am following this tutorial and am able to successfully generate the genesis file and the initialize the bootnode as well but I am unable to start the mining process. Every time I run :

    geth --datadir node1/ --syncmode full --port 30311 --rpc --rpcaddr '' --rpccorsdomain '*' --rpcport 8501 --rpcapi 'personal,db,eth,net,web3,txpool,miner' --bootnodes 'enode://df1b4a467476afa30001457da3f489cb045e15a6ed5b1f172abb610fa23607f611edf1a5172c0f0be8d72626de1ed8d8fd68f41586ac410a4a1e2a5322991755@' --networkid 1010 --gasprice '0' --unlock '0x2817bfe894bB0D148a5c43CCb1361f360D474bC1' --password password.txt --mine 

I get : Incorrect Usage. flag provided but not defined: -gasprice What am I missing ?

PS : The same tutorial was shown in form of a video and I don't seem to have missed any steps.
