bitcoin-26.0p1 – P2P payment system (cvsweb github mirror)


Bitcoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant
payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer
technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions
and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network.
Bitcoin is also the name of the open source software which enables
the use of this currency.

Available flavors:

  no_x11: Built daemon and CLI tools only, no Qt5 GUI tools

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

RPC user and password

Change rpcuser/rpcpassword in ${SYSCONFDIR}/bitcoin.conf before starting
bitcoind via rc.d(8).

Run the following command to create a RPC password:

${LOCALBASE}/share/bitcoin/rpcauth.py USERNAME

Storage requirements

You may wish to reduce storage requirements by pruning (deleting) old blocks.
Enable prune in ${SYSCONFDIR}/bitcoin.conf brefore you start bitcoind first
time or enable block pruning on the command line:

    -prune=N: where N is the number of MB to allot for raw block & undo data.

The minimum allowed size is 550MB. See bitcoind(1).
