What is Litecoin Core?

Litecoin Core is a program that implements the Litecoin protocol for remote procedure call (RPC) use. Learn more about Litecoin Core.


How to use this image

This image contains the main binaries from the Litecoin Core project - litecoind, litecoin-cli and litecoin-tx. It behaves like a binary, so you can pass any arguments to the image and they will be forwarded to the litecoind binary:

❯ docker run --rm uphold/litecoin-core \
  -printtoconsole \
  -regtest=1 \
  -rpcallowip= \
  -rpcpassword=bar \

By default, litecoind will run as user litecoin for security reasons and with its default data dir (~/.litecoin). If you'd like to customize where litecoind stores its data, you must use the LITECOIN_DATA environment variable. The directory will be automatically created with the correct permissions for the litecoin user and litecoind automatically configured to use it.

❯ docker run -e LITECOIN_DATA=/var/lib/litecoind --rm uphold/litecoin-core \
  -printtoconsole \

You can also mount a directory in a volume under /home/litecoin/.litecoin in case you want to access it on the host:

❯ docker run -v ${PWD}/data:/home/litecoin/.litecoin --rm uphold/litecoin-core \
  -printtoconsole \

You can optionally create a service using docker-compose:

  image: uphold/litecoin-core

The uphold/docker-litecoind docker project is under MIT license.
