Bitcore has Bitcoin built right in, so joining the peer-to-peer network is simple.
You'll need to have Node.js and ZeroMQ dependencies installed, and be running as a user without root privileges. For more detailed info, check out our expanded guide.
npm install -g bitcore
Once you install Bitcore, the
bitcored command will be available in your terminal. Run it to start your node.
Your Bitcore node is now connecting to the peer-to-peer network and downloading the blockchain.
You can watch the download progress by opening Insight, the bundled blockchain explorer, in a web browser.
