Download and Build

Select an operation system and install and build.

Note

  • BitShares requires a 64-bit operating system to build, and will not build on a 32-bit OS.
  • BitShares now supports Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  • BitShares now supports OpenSSL 1.1.0

Build Script:

git clone https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-core.git
cd bitshares-core
git checkout master # may substitute "master" with current release tag
git submodule update --init --recursive
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo .
make

Upgrade Script (prepend to the Build Script above if you built a prior release):

git remote set-url origin https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-core.git
git checkout master
git remote set-head origin --auto
git pull
git submodule update --init --recursive # this command may fail
git submodule sync --recursive
git submodule update --init --recursive
