Please check out the wiki and FAQ for information on this project.

Python 3.7+ is required. Make sure your default python version is >=3.7 by typing python3.

If you are behind a NAT, it can be difficult for peers outside your subnet to reach you when they start up. You can enable UPnP on your router or add a NAT (for IPv4 but not IPv6) and firewall rules to allow TCP port 8444 access to your peer. These methods tend to be router make/model specific.

Most should only install harvesters, farmers, plotter, full nodes, and wallets. Building timelords and VDFs is for sophisticated users in most environments. Chia Network and additional volunteers are running sufficient Timelords for testnet consensus.


Install instructions are available in the INSTALL section of the chia-blockchain repository wiki.


Once installed, a Quick Start Guide is available from the repository wiki.
