What is TecraCoin
TecraCoin is open source cryptocurrency developed mainly by Tecra. It focuses on fast transactions and reliable network with low transaction fees. TecraCoin is circulating medium on Tecra fundraising platform which enables tokenization of high-tech projects.
Tokenization process is decentralised and is fully compatible with Omni Layer asset platform.
TecraCoin developed and utilizes Merkle Tree Proofs (MTP) as its Proof-of-Work algorithm which aims to be memory-hard with fast verification and short proofs.
Running with Docker
If you are already familiar with Docker, then running TecraCoin with Docker might be the easier method for you. To run TecraCoin using this method, first install Docker. After this, you may continue with the following instructions.
Please note that we currently don‘t support the GUI when running with Docker. Therefore, you can only use RPC (via HTTP or the
tecracoin-cli utility) to interact with TecraCoin via this method.
Pull our latest official Docker image:
docker pull tecracoin/tecranode-mainnet
Start TecraCoin daemon:
docker run --detach --name tecracoind tecracoin/tecranode-mainnet
View current block count (this might take a while since the daemon needs to find other nodes and download blocks first):
docker exec tecracoind tecracoin-cli getblockcount
View connected nodes:
docker exec tecracoind tecracoin-cli getpeerinfo
docker stop tecracoind
docker cp tecracoind:/home/tecracoind/.tecracoin/wallet.dat .
Start daemon again:
docker start tecracoind
