  • Install BitcoinD Ubuntu

    The Bitcoind package is available in the universal repostories, you can add bitcoin PPA and then install bitcoind . This will give a stable version to you .

     

    Dependencies

    To get add-apt-repository, which we will use later to add the bitcoin PPA:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install bitcoind

    Configuration

    Before starting bitcointd you'll want to create directory and the bitcoin.conf configuration file:

    cd ~/
    mkdir .bitcoin
    cd .bitcoin
    vim bitcoin.conf

     

    In bitcoin.conf these content are important :

    server=1
    testnet=1
    rpcuser=UNIQUE_RPC_USERNAME
    rpcpassword=UNIQUE_RPC_PASSWORD

     

    If you wish to use this installation on the regular bitcoin network, remove testnet=1
