BBNCOIN is an open source platform for private blockchains, which offers a rich set of features including extensive configurability, rapid deployment, permissions management, native assets and data streams. Although it is designed to enable private blockchains, BBNCOIN provides maximal compatibility with the bitcoin ecosystem, including the peer-to-peer protocol, transaction/block formats and Bitcoin Core APIs/runtime parameters.
BBNCOIN is licensed under the GPLv3 open source license. We also offer commercial licenses for those wishing to integrate BBNCOIN into a proprietary software solution.

These compilation instructions have been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 only.
C++ compilers are memory-hungry, so it is recommended to have at least 1 GB of memory available when compiling BBNCOIN. With less memory, compilation may take much longer due to swapfile thrashing.
Linux Build Notes (on Ubuntu 14.04 x64)
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev sudo apt-get install git sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev
Compile BBNCOIN for Ubuntu (64-bit)
./autogen.sh ./configure make
This will build
The release is built with GCC after which
strip BBNCOINdstrings the debug symbols, which reduces the executable size by about 90%.

Mac Build Notes (on MacOS Sierra)
Install XCode and XCode command line tools Install git from git-scm Install brew (follow instructions on brew.sh) brew install autoconf automake berkeley-db4 libtool boost openssl pkg-config rename
Prepare for static linking
Apple does not support statically linked binaries as documented here, however, it is convenient for end-users to launch a binary without having to first install brew, a third-party system designed for developers.
To create a statically linked BBNCOIN which only depends on default MacOS dylibs, the following steps are taken:
Hide the brew boost dylibs from the build system: rename -e 's/.dylib/.dylib.hidden/' /usr/local/opt/boost/lib/*.dylib
Hide the brew berekley-db dylibs from the build system: rename -e 's/.dylib/.dylib.hidden/' /usr/local/opt/berkeley-db@4/lib/*.dylib
Hide the brew openssl dylibs from the build system: rename -e 's/.dylib/.dylib.hidden/' /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/*.dylib
The default brew cookbook for berkeley-db and boost builds static libraries, but the default cookbook for openssl only builds dylibs.
- Tell brew to build openssl static libraries: brew edit openssl In 'def configure_args' change 'shared' to 'no-shared' brew install openssl --force
Compile BBNCOIN for Mac (64-bit)
