SWIPP is a modern cryptocurrency based on a secure hashing algorithm - offering blazingly fast anonymous transactions. The code base is actively developed by a skilled software engineering team with decades of experience. Swipp - a modern cryptocurrency
The currency is a long-term project with a long-term development plan. The currency features sane returns and specifications intended to create a healthy cryptocurrency with longevity.
The first step is to clone the Swipp repository into a local directory on you computer. In order to be able to do this, we also need to install git:
sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/teamswipp/swippcore
Make sure you answer "Yes", to all the questions asked by apt-get.
When this is done, we need to install a few build tools in order for the build to succeed, such as GNU make and GCC:
sudo apt-get install build-essential make g++
After we have prepared the needed build environment, we also need to install a number of library dependencies used by the Swipp wallet:
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev libssl1.0-dev libdb5.3++-dev libminiupnpc-dev libz-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
Building the CLI/RPC version
If the build environment is properly prepared, we should be able to build the wallet by executing the following command:
cd swippcore/src make -j8 -f makefile.unix
With a little luck, the build succeeds, leaving you with an executable file "swippd" in the current directory.
Building the QT version
The QT wallet needs a number of additional dependencies. Execute the following command to complement the build environment with the default libraries and build tools from QT:
sudo apt-get install qt5-default qttools5-dev-tools
Once completed, we should be able to generate the make file from the Swipp project file by running the following command:
cd swippcore qmake swipp.pro
Now simply build the project bu executing the following command:
If successful, this should generate an executable file "swipp-qt" in the current directory.
Building a distribution-independent QT version
You can generate a distribution-independent AppImage executable by following the instructions in the section above.
Next, you simply execute the following script:
Once completed, you should end up with an executable "swipp-qt-x86_64.AppImage" file in the current directory. This executable is completely distribution-independent and should run on any recent linux variant and version.
The master branch is our main development branch. When you run or update to a new Swipp version, we recommend that you only use commits where a new version has been tagged. We tag new versions at regular intervals - even when we do not make an official release. Any tagged release can be considered stable and safe to run. Running any other version at any other commit in-between is not supported and done at your own risk.
