Project description

Running your RCNet node

Get a computer with Ubuntu 18.04.

  • DigitalOcean droplets are our favorites if you are new.

Install prerequisites:

Install Git if your OS doesn't have it preinstalled

Cent OS
sudo yum install git
sudo apt-get install git-core

Install Node requirements

sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y python3-pip redis-server mongodb

Open your ports:

sudo ufw allow 443/tcp

sudo ufw allow 10000:10999/tcp

Download Cilantro

git clone

NOTE: Capnproto takes a very long time to install because it compiles from source. Please be patient!!

Setup Node Configuration

python3 scripts/

Enter your Signing Key (Private Key) as a Hex String

Find your Signing Key / Private Key in the Lamden Vault Chrome Plugin. If you don't have a wallet yet, get one by following the instructions here:


Enter your wallet password to expose your Private Key, as shown above.

Enter Constitution File Name

This is the file name of the initial configuration. Constitution files are located in the constitutions folder. If you don't know which one to use, ask an admin.

Example names: rcnet.json, nojan.json, nohup.json.

If you are not part of the constitution, this step will fail. You can't join the network if you are not a participant.

Start your node

make stop-db
make start-db
python3 scripts/

If you want to leave your node up and running while you log out of ssh, add nohup and & like this:

make stop-db
make start-db
nohup python3 scripts/ &

Your node is now up and running!
