Installation Guide

This guide is for building the node from source. If you would like to just download the compiled program, head over to the releases page, which should include a pre-built DUSK node, and a pre-built wallet executable.

NOTE: This guide assumes you are building and running from a UNIX-like operating system. The node is not tested on Windows.


Go 1.17 or newer.


First, download the codebase and it's dependencies into your $GOPATH by running:

go get

Then, navigate to the testnet folder, like so:

cd $GOPATH/src/

To build the binary, simply run:

make build

Finally, to start your node, type:

./bin/dusk --config=dusk.toml


The wallet is hosted in a separate folder, found here.

Building the wallet

The wallet is automatically built when running make build. You can then execute it by typing:


Running the wallet

Alternatively, to build and run the wallet in a single command, simply type:

make wallet

How to use the wallet

The wallet will show you a menu with available options, that you can navigate with the arrow keys and the enter key.

Note that the wallet is a seperate process from the node, and thus closing the wallet does not stop the node from running.
