$ docker build -t cbitcoin/cbtc .

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

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

Create cbtc.conf config file and run the application

$ docker run -d --name cbtc-node \
  -v cbtc.conf:/cbtc/data/cbtc.conf \
  -p 2050:2050 -p \

Verify cbtc-node is running

$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                  COMMAND                     CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                              NAMES

Follow the logs

docker logs -f cbtc-node

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

docker exec -it cbtc-node cli help

Using a Dockerfile

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

FROM cbtc/cbtc
COPY cbtc.conf /cbtc/data/cbtc.conf

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


Windows build is maintained in cbtc-win project.
