Bitcore Node

A Polis 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 Polis Core with additional indexing 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 poliscore-node
poliscore-node start

Note: For your convenience, we distribute polisd binaries for x86_64 Linux and x86_64 Mac OS X. Upon npm install, the binaries for your platform will be downloaded. For more detailed installation instructions, or if you want to compile the project yourself, then please see the Bitcore branch of Polis Core with additional indexing.


  • GNU/Linux x86_32/x86_64, or OSX 64bit (for polisd distributed binaries)
  • Node.js v0.10, v0.12 or v4
  • ZeroMQ (libzmq3-dev for Ubuntu/Debian or zeromq on OSX)
  • ~200GB of disk storage
  • ~8GB of RAM


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

poliscore-node create -d <polis-data-dir> mynode
cd mynode
poliscore-node install <service>
poliscore-node install https://github.com/yourname/helloworld

This will create a directory with configuration files for your node and install the necessary dependencies. For more information about (and developing) services, please see the Service Documentation.
