I've installed bitcoin core as the documentation in bitcoin.org and its working great. then, I tried to install bitcoin-ABC manually as following:

  1. wget bitcoin-cash-gnu.tar.gz
  2. tar xzf bitcoin-cash-gnu.tar.gz
  3. cd bitcoin-cash-gnu/bin
  4. ls

bitcoin-cli bitcoin-qt bitcoin-tx bitcoind test_bitcoin

  1. I have renamed bin directory files so it doesn't conflict with bitcoin-legacy.

bitcoinCash-cli bitcoinCash-qt bitcoinCash-tx bitcoinCashd test_bitcoinCash

  1. then i've installed it on /etc/usr/bin

sudo install -m 0755 -o root -g root -t /usr/local/bin bitcoin-cash-gnu/bin/bin/*

Then I tried to run bitcoinCashd and

Command not found


I was able to successfully install Bitcoin ABC on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, alongside Bitcoin Core, using these instructions:

  1. Download the appropriate binary from here: https://download.bitcoinabc.org/

    For me, the command would be:

    wget https://download.bitcoinabc.org/0.16.2/linux/bitcoin-abc-0.16.2-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz

  2. Extract the archive:

    tar xzvf bitcoin-abc-0.16.2-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz

  3. Rename the binary files:

    cd bitcoin-abc-0.16.2/bin/; rename 's/bitcoin/bitcoinCash/' *

  4. Install the files into /usr/local/bin:

    sudo install -m 0755 -o root -g root -t /usr/local/bin *

And voilà!

bitcoinCashd -version outputs:

Bitcoin ABC Daemon version v0.16.2.0-6af5e93


bitcoind -version outputs:

Bitcoin Core Daemon version v0.15.1


ls /usr/local/bin outputs:

bitcoinCash-cli  bitcoinCash-seeder  bitcoind    test_bitcoin
bitcoinCashd     bitcoinCash-tx      bitcoin-qt  test_bitcoinCash
bitcoinCash-qt   bitcoin-cli         bitcoin-tx
  • I did exactly the same, but when I called bitcoinCashd it didn't work – Adam Jan 15 '18 at 13:14
  • Is /usr/local/bin in your $PATH? – kemp Jan 15 '18 at 13:47
  • Your answer just gave me the chance to trust my solution and try again thanks! – Adam Jan 15 '18 at 14:03
