Calin Culianu aka cculianu, an Electron Cash developer have started a new project called Fulcrum.
I decided to package Fulcrum for Fedora Linux and distribute it via COPR.
Fulcrum is a fast & nimble SPV server for Bitcoin Cash. It is written with C++ and Qt.
It is possible to include the server into the official Fedora repository in the future.
# Enable package repo
$ sudo dnf copr enable jonny/BitcoinCash
# Download and install the package
$ sudo dnf install fulcrum
# Start the fulcrum service
$ sudo systemctl start fulcrum.service
# View the logs
$ journalctl -f -u fulcrum.service
# View the status
$ systemctl status fulcrum.service
Sounds strange, but my intentions was to call the package fulcrum, will find out why I needed to call it Fulcrum-contrib-rpm.
Update: I managed to rename the package name to fulcrum.
The config file is located
There is a dedicated user called
fulcrum that runs the server via systemd, the datadir used is
The executable is installed in
/usr/bin/fulcrum and can also be executed as a normal user.
