Software Included

Getting started after deploying bcoin

bcoin is already enabled as a service and should start automatically. Visit your new bcoin 1-Click App Droplet via ssh root@your_Droplet_IP, and then try running the command bcoin-cli info to get the blockchain sync progress.

API Creation

In addition to creating a Droplet from the bcoin 1-Click App via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 4GB bcoin Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
       -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"bcoin-18-04"}' \
