Bitcore Node MegaCoin

A MegaCoin full node for building applications and services with Node.js. A node is extensible and can be configured to run additional services. At the minimum a node has an interface to Bitcoin Core with additional indexing for more advanced address queries. Additional services can be enabled to make a node more useful such as exposing new APIs, running a block explorer and wallet service.

Install

git clone https://github.com/LIMXTEC/bitcore-node-mec.git
cd bitcore-node-mec
npm install
bitcore-node start

Prerequisites

  • GNU/Linux x86_32/x86_64, or OSX 64bit (for megacoind distributed binaries)
  • Node.js v0.10, v0.12 or v4
  • ZeroMQ (libzmq3-dev for Ubuntu/Debian or zeromq on OSX)
  • ~30GB of disk storage
  • ~2GB of RAM

Configuration

Bitcore includes a Command Line Interface (CLI) for managing, configuring and interfacing with your Bitcore Node.

bitcore-node create -d <bitcoin-data-dir> mynode
cd mynode
bitcore-node install <service>
bitcore-node install https://github.com/yourname/helloworld

This will create a directory with configuration files for your node and install the necessary dependencies. For more information about (and developing) services, please see the Service Documentation.
