If you feel extremely lucky or your have a supercomputer to your disposal you may try to mine for bitcoins to earn some extra cash. The complexity of Bitcoin’s block chain hashing algorithm gets stronger every 2 weeks to combat the Moore’s law so be sure to bring in some decent hardware. In this article we will show how to easily deploy a Bitcoin mining node with docker.
The automated trusted build of the Bitcoin mining node “linuxconfig/bitcoin-node” docker image can be used to instantly deploy a Bitcoin node on any host running docker service.
The docker Bitcoin mining node image runs on Debian Linux and includes bitcoin daemon binaries directly downloaded from bitcoin.org. It is deployed under “root” user account. The
rpcpassword are automatically generated during a first launch and can be located in
The Bitcoin node server is configured to listen on
8333 port and this to allow for node to node commutation as well as
8332 port to accept JSON-RPC communications.
To deploy your Bitcoin node run the following linux command.
# docker run -d --name=bitcoin-node -h bitcoind -p 8332:8332 -p 8333:8333 linuxconfig/bitcoin-node
