Updated Tutorial

*Note you may need to use sudo , This tutorial can be used for steps , We recommend to follow
latest procedure from waves documentaton
Step 1
Update all packages to the latest one.
sudo apt update
Step 2
Add extra functonality and sofware to Ubuntu (it could already be i nstalled on some occasions)
sudo apt install -y sofware-propertes-common
sudo apt install -y build-essental
sudo apt install -y nano
Step 3
Install Java development kit (I use openjdk but this one is recommended).
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt update
sudo apt -y install oracle-java8-installer
Check if you have the l atest version
java –version
Step 4
Download the latest fullnode from Waves repository.
Link: htps://github.com/wavesplatorm/Waves /releases/
Command: [Look for latest version]
wget htps://github.com/wavesplatorm/Waves/releases/download/v0.15.4/waves_0.15.4_all.deb
Step 5
Install the downloaded .deb file:
sudo dpkg -i waves_0.15.4_all.deb
Step 6
Create a new Waves wallet either on;
htps://waveswallet.io/ (contains encoded base 58 seed)
htps://wavesplatorm.com/ (does not contain encoded base58 seed) You can encode your seed
yourself by using a bas e58 encode tool.
Store credentals of your new wallet in a safe place.
Step 7
Open the Waves config file with an editor like nano or vim (usually
sudo nano /usr/share/waves/conf/waves.conf
Step 8
Configure waves.conf
Remove the comment from node name by deletng the #
# Node name to send during handshake. Comment this string out to set random node name.
node-name = “Some Unique Name”
Set the declared address to the external IP address of your node:
# String with IP address and port to send as external address during handshake. Could be set automatcally if
uPnP is enabled.
declared-address = “”

Set your wallet setngs (set a local password and use the base58 string of your wallet.
# Wallet setngs
wallet {
# Password to protect wallet file
# Wallet seed as BASE58 string
seed = “yourbase58stringofyourwallethere_thisis_a_very_long_string”

Set your node REST API.
Change “enable = no” to “enable = yes”
Set bind address to your IP (this could also be your internal IP if you’re not connectng from the
# Node’s REST API setngs
rest-api {
# Enable/disable node’s REST API
enable = yes
# Network address to bind to
bind-address = “”
# Port to listen to REST API requests
port = 6869
# Hash of API key string
api-key-hash = “API KEY HASH HERE”
Set features you wish to support by votng for it (if there’s a vote ongoing).
features {
supported = [4, 5, 6, 8] }
Step 9
Make sure the Waves node starts automically as the server boots
systemctl enable waves.service
Start the Waves node
service waves start
Watch the Wavesnode log live (press ctrl+c to cancel)
journalctl -u waves.service -f
The Waves node is now downloading the blockchain. This process could take quite some tme.
Once you see the Blockheight is the same as on htps://wavesexplorer.com/ you are fully s ynced.
Check if your node is s howing up at (use ctrl+f to find your IP)
Step 10
Set api-key-hash. The password is the password you used in # Wallet setngs. You can replace
‘localhost’ with your IP if the command is not working.
You can find your API key hash by issueing the following command:
curl -X POST –header ‘Content-Type: applicaton/json’ –header ‘Accept: applicaton/json’ -d
‘YOURPASSWORDHERE’ ‘htp://localhost:6869/utls/hash/secure’
Open waves config and set API key hash:
sudo nano /user/share/waves/conf/waves.conf
# Hash of API key string
api-key-hash = “API KEY HASH HERE”
Restart Waves node:
service waves restart
DONE! Your Waves Platorm full node is up and running. I you want to beter security for your
node I encourage reading:
Startng, restartng, stopping or get the status of the node:
sudo service waves start
sudo service waves restart
sudo service waves stop
sudo service waves status

It is necessary to configure Waves coin before its assets
