You can now run your own decentralised exchange node and trade STEEM with:
all using a Light Wallet with built-in deposit/withdraw and FIAT gateway.
A few steps will have you up and running. The system uses a Light Wallet which can connect to trusted secure servers or your own local blockchain (run from the command line).
P2P Decentralised Exchange Node setup for Ubuntu x64 - ( copy and paste to your terminal )
You can run on your own computer, a local server, VPS or VirtualBox.
### 1. Download the software to build for Ubuntu Linux x64 using git: # update your system and install ntp sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade sudo apt-get install ntp sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata # to set your time zone # Install the build tools sudo apt-get install gcc g++ cmake make libbz2-dev libdb++-dev libdb-dev libssl-dev openssl libreadline-dev autoconf libtool git libncurses-dev build-essential kernel-package libncurses-dev doxygen libboost-all-dev autotools-dev automake # you may have to run this on a fresh install and reboot #sudo dpkg --configure -a #sudo reboot # download the P2P node software git clone https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-2.git # build the P2P node software cd bitshares-2 git checkout bitshares git describe --tags git submodule update --init --recursive cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release . make witness_node cli_wallet
### 2. Run your new P2P Decentralised Exchange Node ~/bitshares-2/programs/witness_node/witness_node --rpc-endpoint "127.0.0.1:8090" # will allow only your computer's wallet to connect to the blockchain # ~/bitshares-2/programs/witness_node/witness_node --rpc-endpoint "0.0.0.0:8090" # will allow anyone to connect their wallet to your copy of the blockchain # you can also strip and copy witness_node to your bin folder for easy blockchain startup mkdir ~/bin strip ./programs/witness_node/witness_node strip ./programs/cli_wallet/cli_wallet cp ./programs/witness_node/witness_node ~/bin cp ./programs/cli_wallet/cli_wallet ~/bin

I have used VirtualBox to run the blockchain on Ubuntu.
Remember to install openssh and forward ports in VirtualBox host
Network settings then ssh in (you can use putty on windoze).
# ssh email@example.com -p 3022
3. The fun part - download the Light Wallet software for your OS
Download the Light Wallet here:
BitShares Light Wallet
Set your user name and password (if you found the post useful, you could add by24seven as your Referrer and get a few Free PERKS too)
Connect to your local chain after it has synchronised
In the Light Wallet under
settings * API CONNECTION click on
wss://bitshares.openledger.info/ws and change it to your own blockchain node from part 2
or server ip
If you are using a VPS it is recommended you use ssh to connect to the API eg:
ssh -L 6080:localhost:8090 user@vpsserverip
then connect to the API with
in the Light Wallet
Welcome to your own Decentralised Exchange
