Cryptocurrency: Example Service
Minimal Exonum blockchain example implementing a simple cryptocurrency.
See the documentation for a detailed step-by-step guide how to approach this example.
Build & Run
To build and run a single node use:
# clone the repository with blockchain node git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:exonum/exonum.git cd exonum/examples/cryptocurrency # build and run a zero-configuration demo cargo run --example demo
Now the node is listening to HTTP requests on http://localhost:8000.
Sample Transactions & Read Requests
When node is launched, you can use transaction examples to check that it works properly.
A simplest way to do this is launching the
script in the examples directory (for *NIX platforms), or
in the same directory (for Windows with PowerShell installed).
The script creates two wallets, performs a transfer
between them, and then verifies that the wallet status was correctly updated.
Alternatively, you may use command-line utilities, such as
curl, to manually
POST transactions on the transaction endpoint and read data from wallet
wallets_info.sh script provides a
handy way to do this).
