You need the dotnet command line tools.

This project targets Net Core version 3.0 (preview 5).

Optionally, if you want to use TurtleCoin-Crypto as opposed to the native C# cryptography implementations, then you will also need to compile the turtlecoin-crypto-shared library from the link below and place the resulting file in the "Include" folder before compiling the solution.


Install the dotnet sdk from here -

Once this is installed, you should have access to the dotnet executable from a standard cmd.

Alternatively you can attempt installing Visual Studio to install dotnet, however I found that it installed the wrong version for me.

Once you have the correct dotnet sdk installed (Verify by running dotnet build or another of the below commands via CLI) you can interact with the project via Visual Studio, if you like.

To do so, open up the CantiLib.sln file in Visual Studio. To run the daemon, just hit the green arrow labeled Daemon. To run the tests, choose the Test menu, then Run, then All Tests.

Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, RHEL, openSUSE

(There is a drop down box to choose the distro you are using)

Arch Linux

Yep, it's a special snowflake edition

  • Install dotnet-sdk from the repos:

pacman -S dotnet-sdk


  • Run dotnet build from this base directory.


  • Enter the CS-TurtleCoin directory

  • Run dotnet run

  • This will launch the daemon.


The main code base is available in the CantiLib folder.
