The Dothereum reference node implemention; written in Rust, based on the Substrate v2.0 framework.

Dothereum 0.1 Alpha

  • stage: Testnet 0.1 Alpha
  • id: xth_alpha
  • protocolId: xth
  • specVersion: 1004
  • ss58Format: 20
  • tokenDecimals: 18
  • tokenSymbol: XTH
  • expectedBlockTime: 15 seconds
  • epochDuration: 4 hours
  • genesisStateRoot: 0x809c…2adf
  • genesisBlockHash: 0x6646…1e89

You can directly connect to the public testnet with:

dothereum --chain alpha
  • Bootnodes:
    • /ip4/
    • /ip4/
    • /ip4/
    • /ip4/
  • Telemetry: 0.1 Alpha

Build the node from source

  1. Install Rust:
curl -sSf | sh
  1. Install additional dependencies, i.e,. for Ubuntu:
sudo apt install build-essential cmake pkg-config libssl-dev openssl git clang libclang-dev
  1. Install required tools:
  1. Ensure Cargo is in your $PATH:
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.cargo/bin
  1. Build the node
cargo build --release
  1. The binary can be found in

Run a local Dothereum testnet

You can run a multi-node local testnet by using the built-in chain specification local and start validating blocks with the preset accounts for --alice and --bob:

dothereum --chain local \
  --base-path /tmp/local-xth/alice \
  --alice \
  --port 31337 \
  --validator \
  --node-key 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000a11c3

The --bootnodes flag ensures Bob connecting to Alice.

dothereum --chain local \
  --base-path /tmp/local-xth/bob \
  --bob \
  --port 34242 \
  --validator \
  --node-key 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000b0b \
  --bootnodes /ip4/

To add more validators to your network, use the preconfigured accounts --charlie, --dave, --eve, and --ferdie. Make sure to connect them to Alice's and Bob's nodes using the --bootnodes flag.

Run a Dothereum development chain

You can quickly start a local development chain with:

dothereum --dev

Get help

Detailed logs may be shown by running the node with the following environment variables set:

RUST_LOG=debug RUST_BACKTRACE=1 dothereum --dev

Additional CLI usage options are available and may be shown by running:

dothereum --help
