You need

  • bin/32/reddcoind (headless, 32-bit) or
  • bin/64/reddcoind (headless, 64-bit)

and

  • bin/32/reddcoin-cli (headless, 32-bit) or
  • bin/64/reddcoin-cli (headless, 64-bit)

from https://github.com/reddcoin-project/reddcoin/releases/download/v2.0.1.2/reddcoin-2.0.1.2-linux.tar.gz

Extract reddcoind and reddcoin-cli from reddcoin-2.0.1.2-linux.tar.gz and copy to home directory and set permissions:

  • chmod +x reddcoin*

Create Reddcoin Core wallet directory, download and extract blockchain snapshot into this folder

Create reddcoin.conf file for using Reddcoin Core command line interface and RPC calls

  • mkdir ~/.reddcoin && cd ~/.reddcoin
  • echo “rpcuser=”$USER >> reddcoin.conf
  • read RPC_PWD < <(date +%s | sha256sum | base64 | head -c 32 ; echo)
  • echo “rpcpassword=”$RPC_PWD >> reddcoin.conf

Start Reddcoin core wallet daemon (Attention: Add/Create extra swap file if memory 1GB or less)

  • cd ~
  • ./reddcoind -daemon

Get status in info (few minutes after wallet start up)

  • ./reddcoin-cli getinfo
