I tried to install a couple of coins from GitHub code, but none succeeded. For example, this (or other): https://github.com/muddafudda/PayCon

Please step-by step guide

    You need to read the file doc/build-unix.txt I think. Jan 31, 2017 at 12:28

You have to install the required dependancies first

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev

sudo apt-get install -y libdb++-dev libssl-dev libboost1.48-all libboost-chrono1.48-dev


git clone https://github.com/cryptotech/PayCon.git 

cd PayCon/src/leveldb

sh build_detect_platform build_config.mk ./


cd PayCon/src

make -f makefile.unix
  • It would be helpfull, if you told him where you got this info from.

  • Thank you for success. Missing this place a coin description: "PayCon cd / src / leveldb build_detect_platform build_config.mk sh ./ " That there is not a signatory to the developer.

  • In addition, after the start I get: "Error: To use PayCond, you must set a rpcpassword in the configuration file: /home/droid/.PayCon/PayCon.conf It is recommended you use the following random password: rpcuser=PayConrpc rpcpassword=BciiVvwLyPyHdWD35K18WHbADcckvkEn6hLjckbZoFX8 (you do not need to remember this password)

  • That is fairly typical message from any Altcoin - you just need to create a file /home/droid/.PayCon/PayCon.conf and put in the data it says. You can also add more startup configuration parameters in there rather than on the command line.

  • Fine. Im create that .conf file in ./PayCon folder. How to starting? Where is the wallet?

You gave instructions for a daemon.

cd PayCon



That should spit out a qt

Just make sure the permissions in build_detect_platform are open, if not, change them.

  • Plus, on Linux, you do not have to build leveldb before you compile. That is strictly Windows.

  • The build-unix.md doc builds the daemon and Qt and other tools too Oct 6, 2017 at 1:02
