How to start with ‘ecoin’?

To start to use Ecoin on you GNU/Linux box (tested on: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS 64bits & Debian Sid 64bits & Trisquel 7.0 64bits), you need to install some dependencies, compile sources and create a configuration file.

To do that, you can follow the next steps:

1) Update your machine:

sudo apt-get -y update

2) Install libraries:

sudo apt-get -y install libssl-dev libssl-dev libboost-dev libdb5.3 libdb5.3++ build-essential libdb5.3-dev libdb5.3++-dev libboost-all-dev

3) Clone main repository:

git clone

4) Compile source:

cd ecoin/src/
make -f makefile.linux

5) Create a configuration file:

cd $HOME
mkdir .ecoin
echo “rpcuser=ecoinrpc” >> .ecoin/ecoin.conf
echo “rpcpassword=enter here your password” >> .ecoin/ecoin.conf
echo “addnode=” >> .ecoin/ecoin.conf

After that, you will be able to start using Ecoin normally; send and receive, mining blocks, etc..

For example:

– To start daemon:
./ecoind –daemon

– To obtain info about your mining process:
./ecoind getmininginfo

– To obtain info about your ECO account:
./ecoind getinfo

– To stop daemon:
./ecoind stop
