Groestlcoin Node Setup: How to Setup

Posted By : Rohit Godara | 30-Apr-2019

Groestlcoin could be a cryptocurrency that incorporates a ticker GRS and appeared in 2014 as a result of the fork of Bitcoin. The creators of the project are convinced that decentralization could be a key condition for the success of any coin, and it ought to be supported by as several personal miners as doable, instead of massive pools or mining corporations.

Groestlcoin uses a mixed consensus methodology - POW and PoS. Proof-of-Work works victimization the Groestl formula, that effectively counteracts ASIC mining. In turn, Proof-of-Stake is used for cryptocurrency mining - just by storing funds on the account, users will get about 2% per annum.

How to set up a Groestlcoin main net node.

The following were tested in Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04, some dependencies can be different in other distros
1. aptitude update -y && aptitude upgrade -y && apt-get update -y && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
2. dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1M count=4096
3. mkswap /swapfile
4. swapon /swapfile
5. gedit /etc/fstab
   write : "/swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0"
6. sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.3 libdb5.3-dev libdb5.3++-dev libtool automake libevent-dev bsdmainutils -y
7. sudo apt-get install git ntp make g++ gcc autoconf cpp ngrep iftop sysstat autotools-dev pkg-config libminiupnpc-dev libzmq3-dev -y
8. git clone
9. cd groestlcoin
10. ./
11. ./configure
12. make
13. strip src/groestlcoind src/groestlcoin-cli src/groestlcoin-tx
14. sudo mv src/groestlcoind src/groestlcoin-cli src/groestlcoin-tx /usr/bin
15. mkdir ~/.groestlcoin
16. nano ~/.groestlcoin/groestlcoin.conf
      set below given configurations in the config file: 
17. Crtl+o enter, 
18. ctrl X
19. groestlcoind
Now let the server sync it will take around 2 to 3 hours once the server is synched with groestlcoin blockchain we can verify if the node is synched or not by using below given commands.

To check groestlcoin network information 
    groestlcoin-cli getnetworkinfo

To check groestlcoin blockchain informations
    groestlcoin-cli getblockchaininfo
