In a production environment we suggest the following minimum specs for a node:

4 cores, 16GB RAM, 40GB SSD, 1Gbit connection, Ubuntu18.04

The system can be bare-metal or virtualized.

In order to save disk space we suggest to only store the last 100k ledgers unless there is a real need for a full history rather than relying on a Full History Node.

Preparing the system

sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt dist-upgrade && sudo apt install software-properties-common net-tools ufw htop -y
wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb /'
sudo apt-get update

Install the daemon

Production (live)

sudo apt-get install casinocoind -y

Update to 4.0.6

sudo systemctl stop casinocoind.service
sudo rm /usr/bin/casinocoind && sudo rm /opt/casinocoind/bin/casinocoind
sudo wget
sudo mv casinocoind-18 casinocoind
sudo chmod 777 casinocoind
sudo cp casinocoind /usr/bin/ && sudo cp casinocoind /opt/casinocoind/bin/
sudo systemctl start casinocoind.service
sudo rm casinocoind

Verify the setup

Check if the daemon is running and syncing by using

 casinocoind server_state 

For continuously updates do

 watch casinocoind server_state 


Once the installation is completed, the daemon will automatically be started and begin to sync.

The daemon configuration can be customized and is located in:
