Configuration

The configuration file config.ini in your data directory is commented and contains the following essential settings:

Attention

We suggest you to examine BitShares configuration items if you are interested starting a node.

Example

Example of a config.ini file in the data directory.

As a default, most parameters have been commented. You have to uncomment to set values.
