What is HYDRA?
HYDRA is a decentralized open source bookings ecosystem for renting hotel rooms, private properties or accommodation. HYDRA will be the first system which allows end customers and property owners to deal with each other on the platform without any fee or commission.
The HYDRA Blockchain is a hybrid utilizing the transaction model of Bitcoin and employing the powerful virtual machine of Ethereum. It is based on the Bitcoin Core, Ethereum and Qtum. It features a Proof of Stake consensus mechanism, high transaction throughput, democratic governance of key parameters, predictable network fees and a unique profit-sharing system.
HYDRA is GPLv3 licensed
Building HYDRA Blockchain
Build on Ubuntu
# This is a quick start script for compiling HYDRA on Ubuntu sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils git cmake libboost-all-dev libgmp3-dev 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 # If you want to build the Qt GUI: sudo apt-get install libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler qrencode git clone https://github.com/LockTrip/Blockchain.git --recursive HYDRA cd HYDRA # Note autogen will prompt to install some more dependencies if needed ./autogen.sh ./configure make -j2
Build on CentOS
Here is a brief description for compiling HYDRA on CentOS
# Compiling boost manually sudo yum install python-devel bzip2-devel git clone https://github.com/boostorg/boost.git cd boost git checkout boost-1.66.0 git submodule update --init --recursive ./bootstrap.sh --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 ./b2 headers sudo ./b2 -j4 install # Installing Dependencies for HYDRA sudo yum install epel-release sudo yum install libtool libdb4-cxx-devel openssl-devel libevent-devel gmp-devel # If you want to build the Qt GUI: sudo yum install qt5-qttools-devel protobuf-devel qrencode-devel # Building HYDRA git clone https://github.com/LockTrip/Blockchain.git --recursive HYDRA cd HYDRA ./autogen.sh ./configure make -j4
Build on OSX
The commands in this guide should be executed in a Terminal application.
The built-in one is located in
Install the OS X command line tools:
When the popup appears, click
Then install Homebrew.
brew install cmake automake berkeley-db4 libtool boost miniupnpc openssl pkg-config protobuf qt5 libevent imagemagick librsvg qrencode gmp
NOTE: Building with Qt4 is still supported, however, could result in a broken UI. Building with Qt5 is recommended.
Clone the HYDRA source code and cd into
git clone https://github.com/LockTrip/Blockchain.git --recursive HYDRA cd HYDRA
Configure and build the headless HYDRA binaries as well as the GUI (if Qt is found).
You can disable the GUI build by passing
./autogen.sh ./configure make
It is recommended to build and run the unit tests:
Then you can either run the command-line daemon using
src/hydra-cli, or you can run the Qt GUI using
