Filecoin (cpp-filecoin)

C++17 implementation of blockchain based digital storage

Filecoin is a decentralized protocol described in spec

Minimal hardware requirements

Node minimal parameters:

Hard disk space: at least 200 GB
RAM: 8 GB
OS: Linux(Ubuntu), macOS. Other operating systems builds are not supported yet, so running on them may be unstable.

Miner minimal parameters:

CPU: 8+ cores
Hard Disk space: 256 GiB of very fast NVMe SSD memory space + 1 TiB of slow HDD memory space
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: GPU is highly recommended, it will speed up computations, but Mixing AMD CPUs and Nvidia GPUs should be avoided.

You can also read about lotus minimal requirements in filecoin-docs

Dependencies

All C++ dependencies are managed using Hunter. It uses cmake to download required libraries and do not require downloading and installing packages manually.

Target C++ compilers are:

  • GCC 9.3.0
  • Clang 9.0.1
  • AppleClang 12.0.0

Lotus CLI

fuhon-node supports subset of lotus CLI commands.
You may download pre-built binaries or build lotus from source.
Lotus CLI introduction.

Rust

filecoin-ffi provides pre-built binaries for some platforms.
If they are unavailable, you need Rust compiler to build them.
Rust installation instruction.

Build

# clone project
git clone --recursive https://github.com/filecoin-project/cpp-filecoin
# configure cmake
cmake cpp-filecoin -B cpp-filecoin/build
# build and install fuhon-node and fuhon-miner
cmake --build cpp-filecoin/build --target install
# check that fuhon-node and fuhon-miner are now available
fuhon-node --help
fuhon-miner --help

Usage

Interopnet node

Create the following fuhon-interopnet/config.cfg file

# use interopnet profile, corresponds to "make interopnet" lotus target
profile=interopnet

# enable debug logs to see sync progress
log=d

# bootstrap peers from https://github.com/filecoin-project/lotus/blob/master/build/bootstrap/interopnet.pi
bootstrap=/dns4/bootstrap-0.interop.fildev.network/tcp/1347/p2p/12D3KooWLGPq9JL1xwL6gHok7HSNxtK1Q5kyfg4Hk69ifRPghn4i
bootstrap=/dns4/bootstrap-1.interop.fildev.network/tcp/1347/p2p/12D3KooWFYS1f31zafv8mqqYu8U3hEqYvaZ6avWzYU3BmZdpyH3h

Start node

fuhon-node --repo fuhon-interopnet --genesis docker/interopnet/genesis.car
# you can omit --genesis flag after first run
fuhon-node --repo fuhon-interopnet

To use lotus CLI add --repo flag

lotus --repo fuhon-interopnet net peers

Mainnet node (from snapshot)

Download mainnet snapshot (docs).

LATEST_SNAPSHOT=$(curl -sI https://fil-chain-snapshots-fallback.s3.amazonaws.com/mainnet/minimal_finality_stateroots_latest.car | perl -ne '/x-amz-website-redirect-location:\s(.+\.car)/ && print $1')
curl -o mainnet-snapshot.car $LATEST_SNAPSHOT

Create following fuhon-mainnet/config.cfg file

# use downloaded snapshot file (do not delete that file)
use-snapshot=mainnet-snapshot.car

# bootstrap peers from https://github.com/filecoin-project/lotus/blob/master/build/bootstrap/mainnet.pi
bootstrap=/dns4/node.glif.io/tcp/1235/p2p/12D3KooWBF8cpp65hp2u9LK5mh19x67ftAam84z9LsfaquTDSBpt

Start node (first run may take some time)

fuhon-node --repo fuhon-mainnet --genesis cpp-filecoin/core/docker/mainnet/genesis.car
