Bitcore Node Dash

A Dash full node for building applications and services with Node.js. A node is extensible and can be configured to run additional services. At the minimum a node has an interface to Dash Core v0.12.1.x for more advanced address queries. Additional services can be enabled to make a node more useful such as exposing new APIs, running a block explorer and wallet service.


npm install -g bitcore-node-polis


  • Dash Core (v0.12.1.x) with support for additional indexing (see above)
  • Node.js v0.10, v0.12, v4 or v5
  • ZeroMQ (libzmq3-dev for Ubuntu/Debian or zeromq on OSX)
  • ~20GB of disk storage
  • ~1GB of RAM


Bitcore includes a Command Line Interface (CLI) for managing, configuring and interfacing with your Bitcore Node.

bitcore-node-polis create -d <polis-data-dir> mynode
cd mynode
bitcore-node-polis install <service>
bitcore-node-polis install
bitcore-node-polis start

This will create a directory with configuration files for your node and install the necessary dependencies.

Please note that Dash Core v0.12.1.x will be downloaded automatically. Once completed the polisd binary should be placed into the <polis-data-dir> folder specified during node creation.

For more information about (and developing) services, please see the Service Documentation.
