A Bitcoin full node for building applications and services with Node.js. A node is extensible and can be configured to run additional services. At the minimum a node has an interface to Bitcoin Core with additional indexing for more advanced address queries. Additional services can be enabled to make a node more useful such as exposing new APIs, running a block explorer and wallet service.


npm install -g
bitcore-node-zcoin start

Note: For your convenience, we distribute bitcoind binaries for x8664 Linux and x8664 Mac OS X. Upon npm install, the binaries for your platform will be downloaded. For more detailed installation instructions, or if you want to compile the project yourself, then please see the Bitcore branch of Bitcoin Core with additional indexing.


  • GNU/Linux x8632/x8664, or OSX 64bit (for bitcoind distributed binaries)
  • Node.js v0.10, v0.12 or v4
  • ZeroMQ (libzmq3-dev for Ubuntu/Debian or zeromq on OSX)
  • ~200GB of disk storage
  • ~8GB of RAM


Bitcore includes a Command Line Interface (CLI) for managing, configuring and interfacing with your Bitcore Node.

bitcore-node-zcoin create -d  mynode
cd mynode
bitcore-node-zcoin install 
bitcore-node-zcoin install

This will create a directory with configuration files for your node and install the necessary dependencies. For more information about (and developing) services, please see the Service Documentation.
