:money_with_wings: CryptoCurrency for all
:warning: DEPRECATED IN FAVOR OF https://github.com/ArkEcosystem/core :warning:*
The Token Exchange Campaign is up at https://tec.ark.io
This version is still alpha, use at your own risks
You need to provision a linux (ubuntu tested) server (digital ocean, vultur or other).
Then use the excellent ark-commander script
cd wget https://ark.io/ARKcommander.sh bash ARKcommander.sh
For developers, please read below in section "Developer Installation"
This is a fork from Lisk with the following features: - Removed sidechains (deprecated in favor of smartbridge) - Removed custom node version - Removed UI for stability and security reasons - Changed some constants (block rewards, blocktime etc...) - Added simple PBFT before forging new block - Ditch addresses from the protocol in favor of bitcoin like system, enabling HD Wallet as for BIP32 - Completely rewritten node management using a single NodeManager and messaging system - Completely rewritten round management (removed mem_round, reward block fees to forger) - Added 64 bytes vendorField as first iteration of smart bridge - Made peers management entirely in-memory for efficiency - Strengthened the transaction management and broadcast (reject often, reject soon) - Rearchitect with relay nodes and forging nodes - Nodes broadcast only block headers.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y curl build-essential python git
Install PostgreSQL (min version: 9.5.2)
sudo apt-get install -y postgresql postgresql-contrib sudo -u postgres createuser --createdb --password $USER createdb ark_test
Install Node.js (tested with version 6.9.2, but any recent LTS release should do):
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs sudo npm install -g n sudo n 6.9.2
Install grunt-cli (globally):
sudo npm install grunt-cli -g
Clone this repository
git clone https://github.com/arkecosytem/ark-node.git cd ark-node
Install node modules:
npm install libpq secp256k1 npm install
To launch Ark on testnet:
createdb ark_testnet node run start:testnet
To launch Ark on devtnet:
createdb ark_devnet node run start:devnet
To launch Ark on mainnet (when launched):
createdb ark_mainnet node run start:mainnet
NOTE: The port, address, genesis block and config-path can be overridden by providing the relevant command switch:
node app.js -p [port] -a [address] -c [config-path] -g [genesisBlock-path]This allow you to run several different networks, or your own private chain
Generate a genesisBlock.json + a default config.json containing all passphrases of genesis delegates
node tasks/createGenesisBlock.jsYou can find generated files in tasks/ - genesisBlock.json - config.json - delegatesPassphrases.json (containing details about the genesis delegates) - genesisPassphrase.json (containing the details of account having all premined arks)
Obviously you can hack away tasks/createGenesisBlock.js for your own custom use.
You can the start with your own chain on a single node (all delegates will forge on your single node) using:
createdb ark_newtest npm run start:newtest
Then you can distribute the config.json (without the delegates secrets inside, and with custom peers settings) to peers to let them join your chain
Load git submodule ark-js:
git submodule init git submodule update
You should run using test configurations
npm run start:test
Run the test suite:
Run individual tests:
npm test -- test/api/accounts.js npm test -- test/api/transactions.js
NOTE: The master passphrase for this test genesis block is as follows:
