Docker

Build

$ docker build -t btcz/bitcoinz .

Create a data directory on your local drive and create a bitcoinz.conf config file

$ mkdir -p /ops/volumes/bitcoinz/data
$ touch /ops/volumes/bitcoinz/data/bitcoinz.conf
$ chown -R 999:999 /ops/volumes/bitcoinz/data

Create bitcoinz.conf config file and run the application

$ docker run -d --name bitcoinz-node \
  -v bitcoinz.conf:/bitcoinz/data/bitcoinz.conf \
  -p 1989:1989 -p 127.0.0.1:1979:1979 \
  btcz/bitcoinz

Verify bitcoinz-node is running

$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                  COMMAND                     CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                              NAMES
31868a91456d        btcz/bitcoinz          "bitcoinzd --datadir=..."   2 hours ago         Up 2 hours          127.0.0.1:1979->1979/tcp, 0.0.0.0:1989->1989/tcp   bitcoinz-node

Follow the logs

docker logs -f bitcoinz-node

The cli command is a wrapper to bitcoinz-cli that works with an already running Docker container

docker exec -it bitcoinz-node cli help

Using a Dockerfile

If you'd like to have a production btc/bitcoinz image with a pre-baked configuration file, use of a Dockerfile is recommended:

FROM btcz/bitcoinz
COPY bitcoinz.conf /bitcoinz/data/bitcoinz.conf

Then, build with docker build -t my-bitcoinz . and run.

Security Warnings

BitcoinZ is experimental and a work-in-progress. Use at your own risk.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
