Install & Run BTFS2.0 Node

Install BTFS 2.0
BTFS can run on most Linux, macOS, and Windows systems. We recommend running it on a machine with at least 2 GB of RAM (it’ll do fine with only one CPU core), but it should run fine with as little as 1 GB of RAM. On systems with less memory, it may not be completely stable. Only support compiling from source for mac and unix-based system.
Build from Source
Clone the go-btfs repository
git clone https://github.com/bittorrent/go-btfs
Navigate to the go-btfs directory and run make install.
Initialize a BTFS Daemon
navigate to the btfs director
$ ./btfs init Generating TRON key with BIP39 seed phrase...

Start the Daemon
Start the BTFS Daemon
./btfs daemon --chain-id <chainid>
Specify the chain for btfs to run by --chainid, the chainid of the test network is 1029, and the start command becomes:
btfs daemon --chain-id 1029

Run the Daemon
When starting the BTFS daemon for the first time, the system will create a node account and at the same time print a string of messages: cannot continue until there is sufficient (100 Suggested) BTT (for Gas) available on After seeing such a message, it is necessary to recharge the node account with BTT through an external account, and the system suggests a minimum of 100 BTT, which is used as gas to deploy a node vault contract by the node account.

After the recharge, the BTFS node will create the vault contract

At this point, the BTFS node is up and running
- the node address and private key need to be saved, and the private key needs to be kept private and secure.
- The vault address needs to be saved, look for the self vault field in the print message, the address after it is the vault address.
