Binary Installation

This page will guide you through Binary setup steps.

Choose either Docker installation OR Binary installation.

Download the Binary

See GitHub for the latest release: https://github.com/keep-network/keep-core/releases

Under Assets, copy the path to the compressed binary and use the command below to download the file. Make relevant adjustments to version as necessary:

cd /home/keep
wget https://github.com/keep-network/keep-core/releases/download/XX.X.X-XX/keep-client-mainnet-XX.X.X-XX-linux-amd64.tar.gz

After the download completes, use the command below to display the contents of the folder:

ls -la

Extract the compressed file:

tar xzvf downloaded-file-name-here.tar.gz

You can save some time and prevent misspelling a file name by typing the first few letter of the file name and pressing the Tab key. This will autocomplete the file name. Be sure to verify the file name prior to pressing the enter key.

Configure tBTC v2 Client

To launch the tBTC v2 client, several configuration flags and environmental values need to be set. For simplicity, a bash script can be used rather than typing or pasting all the flags into the console.

The following flags must be set at minimum:

--ethereum.url "wss://mainnet-ETH-enpoint-here"
--storage.dir "/home/keep/storage"
--ethereum.keyFile "/home/keep/config/UTC--Your-Operator-Key-Name"
# to configure your node to use your machine's public IP
--network.announcedAddresses "/ip4/your.ipv4.address.here/tcp/3919"
# to configure your node to use DNS, provide your DNS in the following
# format
# /dns4/bootstrap-1.test.keep.network/tcp/3919

For a complete list of client commands and flags, see CLI Options.

To launch the client, execute the following:

./keep-client start --ethereum.url "wss://mainnet-ETH-enpoint-here" --storage.dir "/home/keep/storage" --ethereum.keyFile "/home/keep/config/UTC--Your-Operator-Key-Name" --network.announcedAddresses "/ip4/your.ipv4.address.here/tcp/3919"

If everything is configured correctly, the client will request the password for the Operator Account. Supply the password and press Enter.
