Ellipticoind

Ellipticoind is an Ellipticoin node written in Elixir.

Running Ellipticoind:

From a binary release

Installation instructions for Ubuntu 18.0.4 (Bionic Beaver)

  1. Ensure you’re running version 18.0.4 of Ubuntu. If you’re running on a different version of Ubuntu or a different operating system you’ll have to build from source for now.

  2. Install the required dependencies:

    $ apt-get update && apt-get install postgresql redis-server

  3. Create a postgres user:

    $ su -c "createuser ellipticoin" postgres

  4. Create a postgres db:

    $ su -c "createdb ellipticoin" postgres

  5. Create a user that will run the ellipticoind:

    $ adduser --disabled-password --gecos "Ellipticoin" ellipticoin

  6. Execute the remaining commands as the ellipticoin user:

    su ellipticoin

  7. Change the working directory to the home folder of the user you just created:

    $ cd /home/ellipticoin

  8. Download the latest release:

    wget https://github.com/ellipticoin/ellipticoin-ellipticoind/releases/download/0.1.0-alpha/ellipticoind-ubuntu-18-04-0.1.0.tar.gz

  9. Extract it:

    $ tar -xf ellipticoind-ubuntu-18-04-0.1.0.tar.gz

  10. Migrate the database:

    $ ./bin/ellipticoind migrate

  11. Generate a private key for your ellipticoind:

    $ ./bin/ellipticoind generate_private_key
    New private_key:
    LZf9CkbgnZzBKQWfd9ywu9B8XF+wZbRzulAr3ZLogWPIKAJesHzDBDTHJ2foOB/gjLcqLQyfYu8ORK97G05zPg==
    
  12. Update your private key in etc/config.exs.

  13. Run the server in the foreground to make sure everything is set up correctly:

    $ ./bin/ellipticoind foreground

  14. Start the server in the background:

    $ ./bin/ellipticoind start

From Source

  1. Clone the repo: git clone https://github.com/ellipticoin/ellipticoin-ellipticoind && cd ellipticoin-blacksmith-ellipticoind
  2. Update ETHEREUM_PRIVATE_KEY and anything else you'd like to customize in config/dev.secret.exs and config/dev.exs
  3. Run: mix dep.get
  4. Run: mix run --no-halt
