For an overview of the installation process for different platforms, building the package from source, configuration and operation of the Aeternity node please refer to Aeternity node documentation.

We keep our protocol, APIs and research spec in separate protocol repository.

How to start

We publish packages for major platforms on GitHub. Each release comes with release notes describing the changes of the Aeternity node in each particular version.

Please use the latest published stable release rather than the master branch. The master branch tracks the ongoing efforts towards the next stable release to be published though it is not guaranteed to be stable.

Quick Install

By using the installer to install the latest stable version:

bash <(curl -s

Or running a docker container (latest tag):

docker pull aeternity/aeternity
docker run -p 3013:3013 -p 3015:3015 aeternity/aeternity
