Please Note

It is assumed you have already built spacecoin from source.

The instructions use the program screen to keep the process running in the background.


  1. Open a Terminal.

  2. Navigate to the spacecoin/src directory:

    cd spacecoin/src

  3. Start a new screen for spacecoin:

    screen -S spacecoin

  4. Start spacecoin:


    Here you will see all of the output from spacecoind as it starts up and syncs.

  5. Use Ctrl + A + Ctrl + D to exit the screen.

    You can return to it at any point with screen -r spacecoin.

You can now use spacecoin-cli to interact with the daemon.
