Your Keys, Your Coins.

Get Started With Vultr

In order to use Tilt you will either need to run your own private instance of our open-source wallet software or generate and import keys in bulk. This guide will walk you through setting up a VPS (Virtual Private Server) with Vultr.com to run a private always-on Tilt wallet instance for only $2.50/mo.

1. Create an account on Vultr.com.

2. Deploy a new "Cloud Compute" server. Select "Ubuntu 21.04 x64" as the OS. We recommend the "IPv6 ONLY 10GB SSD" server size for $2.50/mo (only available in certain locations). You can choose whatever location you'd like.

3. Connect to your new server using a terminal or SSH app (find your password under Vultr's server information, by clicking on your Cloud Instance).

$ ssh root@your_new_ipv6_address

4. Install the prerequisite software.

root@vultr:~# sudo apt-get install build-essential python3 python3-dev python3-venv libgmp3-dev

5. Create and switch to a new user (choose a good password or better yet use ssh keys).

root@vultr:~# adduser tilt
root@vultr:~# su - tilt

6. Download and install the Tilt wallet software.

tilt@vultr:~$ wget https://tilt.cash/releases/v0.0.2.tar.gz
tilt@vultr:~$ tar -zxvf v0.0.2.tar.gz
tilt@vultr:~$ cd tilt-0.0.2
tilt@vultr:~$ python3 -mvenv env
tilt@vultr:~$ source env/bin/activate
(env) tilt@vultr:~/tilt-0.0.2$ pip install .
(env) tilt@vultr:~/tilt-0.0.2$ echo "cd tilt-0.0.2 && source env/bin/activate && cd .." >> ~/.profile

7. Create your Tilt wallet, register with the Tilt service, and start the local wallet service.

(env) tilt@vultr:~/tilt-0.0.2$ tilt init
(env) tilt@vultr:~/tilt-0.0.2$ tilt register
(env) tilt@vultr:~/tilt-0.0.2$ tilt start

8. Make sure Tilt starts if your server is rebooted.

(env) tilt@vultr:~/tilt-0.0.2$ exit
root@vultr:~# echo -e "#\x21/bin/bash\nsu - tilt bash -c 'tilt start' &\nexit 0" > /etc/rc.local
root@vultr:~# chmod +x /etc/rc.local

9. To connect and use Tilt in the future (use the password for the tilt account that you created in step #5).

$ ssh tilt@your_ipv6_address
(env) tilt@vultr:~$ tilt balance doge
[2021-05-07 11:55:03] [INFO] {'ok': True, 'balance': 0}
(env) tilt@vultr:~$ tilt help
...

That's all for now!
