Bitmark Node

Introduction

bitmark-node is the easiest way for anyone to join the Bitmark network as a fully-validating peer. You can create, verify, and mine Bitmark transactions. Contains the following programs:

  • bitmarkd: Main program
  • prooferd: Mine Bitmark blocks
  • bitmark-wallet: Pay for transactions (support bitcoin / litecoin)
  • bitmark-cli: Command line interface to Main program
  • bitmark-webui: A web user interface for basic control of bitmark-node

Chain

Bitmark provide two diffrent chains for the bitmarkd to join in. They are testing, bitmark.

In order to finish a transaction, you need to send bitcoin or litecoin to the proofing(mining) address of the bitcoin or litecoin which can be configured in the proofing block via web ui.

Please note that: there is a default value given in both chain. Please set your own value if you want to validate a transfer via you own addresses.

Here is a table to indicate what bitmark chain corresponds to which coin chain

Bitmark Bitcoin Litecoin
testing testnet testnet
