Bitcoin 0.8.5 BETA

Copyright (c) 2009-2013 Bitcoin Developers

Distributed under the MIT/X11 software license, see the accompanying file COPYING or http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php. This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit. This product includes cryptographic software written by Eric Young (eay@cryptsoft.com), and UPnP software written by Thomas Bernard.

Intro

Bitcoin is a free open source peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.

Setup

You need the Qt4 run-time libraries to run Bitcoin-Qt. On Debian or Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install libqtgui4

Unpack the files into a directory and run:

  • bin/32/bitcoin-qt (GUI, 32-bit)
  • bin/32/bitcoind (headless, 32-bit)
  • bin/64/bitcoin-qt (GUI, 64-bit)
  • bin/64/bitcoind (headless, 64-bit)

See the documentation at the Bitcoin Wiki for help and more information.
