The Core wallet was compiled on the latest distribution release of Raspbian OS(Stretch 2018-06-27)

Requirements

  • Raspberry Pi 2B/3B(+)
  • SD Card(Minimum 16GB) with Raspbian OS installed
  • Some Coffee and free time 😛

Increase Swapfile

  • Turn off swapfile.

sudo dphys-swapfile swapoff

  • Edit the file “/etc/dphys-swapfile”.

sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile

We are going to change the default size of the swap file from 100 to 2048.

CONF_SWAPSIZE=2048
  • Press CTRL-X and then Y, then Enter to save the file.

  • Type:

sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=20

  • Edit the file "/etc/sysctl.conf".

sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf

  • Add to end of configuration file.

vm.swappiness=20

  • Press CTRL-X and then Y, then Enter to save the file.

Install the Core Dependencies and Uninstall libssl-dev

  • The reason we are uninstalling libssl-dev is that it requires an older version to compile the wallet on Raspbian Stretch.

  • Copy and paste the entire commands below.

sudo apt-get update && 
sudo apt-get install -y build-essential git autoconf libminiupnpc-dev openssl libevent-dev libtool libboost-all-dev qt4-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev libqrencode-dev autoconf libdb-dev protobuf-compiler libdb4.8++ libdb5.3++-dev && 
sudo apt-get remove -y libssl-dev

Edit Repo Sources

Edit the file "/etc/apt/sources.list".

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

  • Find:
stretch main contrib non-free rpi
  • Edit where it says stretch to jessie
  • Press CTRL-X and then Y, then Enter to save the file.

Re-install libssl-dev

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y libssl-dev

Revert edit on sources.list

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

  • Find:
jessie main contrib non-free rpi
  • Edit where it says jessie back to stretch
  • PressCTRL-X and then Y, then Enter to save the file.

Install Berkeley DB

  • Copy and paste the entire commands below.
mkdir ~/bin &&
cd ~/bin &&
wget http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz &&
tar -xzvf db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz &&
cd db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix/ &&
../dist/configure --enable-cxx &&
make &&
sudo make install &&
cd ~/bin

Install BitF Core

  • Copy and paste the entire commands below.
git clone https://github.com/BitFdev/BitF-source-code &&
cd BitF-source-code &&

./autogen.sh &&
./configure --disable-tests --enable-upnp-default --with-incompatible-bdb --without-gui --with-libressl &&
make &&
sudo make install &&
cd ~
  • Note: If you run into permission issues, type:
    `

Start BitF Daemon

  • Create BitF Directory.

mkdir ~/.BitF

  • Create and edit "BitF.conf" file.

sudo nano ~/.BitF/BitF.conf

  • Just copy and paste the entire settings below(additional seed nodes included). Change yourmadeusername and yourmadepassword to your own name and password.
rpcuser=yourmadeusername
rpcpassword=yourmadepassword
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
port=7337
listen=0
server=1

logtimestamps=1
maxconnections=256

addnode=178.128.39.66
addnode=178.128.32.217

addnode=178.128.39.66
addnode=178.128.32.217
addnode=209.97.182.142
  • PressCTRL-X and then Y, then Enter to save the file.

  • Start the daemon and let it sync.

BitFd

  • To view blockhain sync:

tail -f ~/.BitF/debug.log

  • PressCTRL-c to exit

Setup & Encrypt Wallet

  • This is very strongly recommended to keep your funds secure but not required. Change YOUR_PASSWORD to your own password.

BitF-cli encryptwallet YOUR_PASSWORD

To Unlock Wallet

  • TIMEOUT_TIME is the timeout period for how long the wallet will be unlocked.

BitF-cli walletpassphrase YOUR_PASSWORD TIMEOUT_TIME

Create New Address

  • Change YOUR_WALLET_NAME to your own wallet name.

BitF-cli getnewaddress YOUR_WALLET_NAME

Unlock Wallet for Staking Only

  • Change YOUR_PASSWORD to your own password, 99999999 is the timeout period for how long the wallet will be unlocked, but is enabled for staking only with true.

BitF-cli walletpassphrase YOUR_PASSWORD 99999999 true

  • After unlocking the wallet for staking, wait sometime before checking Staking status.

BitF-cli getstakingstatus

  • Results should look the same.
{
  "validtime": true,
  "haveconnections": true,
  "walletunlocked": true,
  "mintablecoins": true,
  "enoughcoins": true,
  "mnsync": true,
  "staking status": true
}

Backup Wallet!!!

  • Example: BitF-cli backupwallet ~/Backup.

BitF-cli backupwallet ~/YOUR_DESTINATION_DIRECTORY

  • For more wallet commands:

BitF-cli help

Thank you :)

You need wallet to get any new coin with you , thank you for this information abt wallet and it’s way to download the same

Hi!, Nice post. Good job. I have a question, I see that you can unlock your wallet for staking puposes, it means that you can generate some additional tokens just having some bitF cryptos in your wallet??. This is the second token besides Ontology, where you can do that!.

·

Yes, that is correct. Majority of Proof of Stake coins can do this. There is a lot more than 2 coins that can do this.

Yeah this is the trending for cryptos, I just have heard about it, last friday. I have to make a new research. Thanks for sharing this information!.
