Run a full Vertcoin node with one command

docker-vertcoind Run a full Vertcoin node with one command

A Docker configuration with sane defaults for running a full Vertcoin node.

Usage docker run -v /home/username/vertcoin:/data -p 8333:8333 lukechilds/vertcoind

If there's a vertcoin.conf in the /data volume it'll be used. If not, one will be created for you with a randomly generated JSON-RPC password.


To access JSON-RPC you'll also need to expose port 8332. You probably only want this available to localhost:

docker run -v /home/username/vertcoin:/data -p 8333:8333 -p lukechilds/vertcoind CLI Arguments

All CLI arguments are passed directly through to vertcoind.

You can use this to configure via CLI args without a config file:

docker run -v /home/username/vertcoin:/data \ -p 8333:8333 \ -p \ lukechilds/vertcoind -rpcuser=jonsnow -rpcpassword=ikn0wnothin

Or just use the container like a vertcoind binary:

$ docker run lukechilds/vertcoind -version Vertcoin Core Daemon version v0.11.1.0-9c5018b Copyright (C) 2009-2017 The Vertcoin Core developers Copyright (C) 2009-2017 The Bitcoin Core developers Please contribute if you find Vertcoin Core useful.
