Quickstart with Docker
The easiest way to get started is by running a local docker instance of the Node client software. The image is pre-configured to run in “local-only” regression-test mode.
Details and installation instructions can be found at the bitcoin docker node github page
The Bitcoin Client Node software we will be using is the implementation known as BitcoinSV. You can obtain a copy of the software from the bitcoinsv download page. At the time of writing the latest version of the software is 1.0.10; you might want to download a newer version if available.
All the source code for the latest stable release of the Bitcoin SV Node Client is also available for download/forking on GitHub
