Setup Guide

1. Setup Bitcore config

Example bitcore.config.json
{
  "bitcoreNode": {
    "chains": {
      "BTC": {
        "mainnet": {
          "chainSource": "p2p",
          "trustedPeers": [
            {
              "host": "127.0.0.1",
              "port": 20008
            }
          ],
          "rpc": {
            "host": "127.0.0.1",
            "port": 20009,
            "username": "username",
            "password": "password"
          }
        },
        "regtest": {
          "chainSource": "p2p",
          "trustedPeers": [
            {
              "host": "127.0.0.1",
              "port": 20020
            }
          ],
          "rpc": {
            "host": "127.0.0.1",
            "port": 20021,
            "username": "username",
            "password": "password"
          }
        }
      },
      "BCH": {
        "mainnet": {
          "parentChain": "BTC",
          "forkHeight": 478558,
          "trustedPeers": [
            {
              "host": "127.0.0.1",
              "port": 30008
            }
          ],
          "rpc": {
            "host": "127.0.0.1",
            "port": 30009,
            "username": "username",
            "password": "password"
          }
        },
        "regtest": {
          "chainSource": "p2p",
          "trustedPeers": [
            {
              "host": "127.0.0.1",
              "port": 30020
            }
          ],
          "rpc": {
            "host": "127.0.0.1",
            "port": 30021,
            "username": "username",
            "password": "password"
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

2. Setup Bitcoin Node

Example Bitcoin Mainnet Config
whitelist=127.0.0.1
txindex=0
listen=1
server=1
irc=1
upnp=1

# Make sure port & rpcport matches the
# bitcore.config.json ports for BTC mainnet

# if using Bitcoin Core v0.17+ prefix
# [main]

port=20008
rpcport=20009
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password

3. Run Bitcoin node

Example Starting a Bitcoin Node
# Path to your bitcoin application and path to the config above
/Applications/Bitcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Bitcoin-Qt -datadir=/Users/username/blockchains/bitcoin-core/networks/mainnet/

4. Start Bitcore

npm run node
