Setting Up the Environment

Before you can begin minting DRC-20 tokens, you need to properly set up your environment. This involves several steps, including updating your system, installing essential software like Node.js and Git, and cloning the necessary repository. In the following sections, we'll guide you through each of these steps in detail to ensure you're well-equipped to proceed with the token minting process. Let's begin!

Important reminder: Copy-Pasting Commands : While going through this setup guide, it's essential to remember that the typical CTRL+V keyboard shortcut for pasting does not work in the terminal or the PuTTY interface. Instead, to paste any command into the terminal, you should right-click of your mouse to copy. This will ensure that the commands you're copying from this guide are accurately replicated in your terminal session. Keep this in mind as we proceed through the setup steps.

System Update

First, it's always a good idea to update your Ubuntu system. You can achieve this by running the following commands in your terminal:

bashCopy codesudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Node.js Installation

Next, you'll need to install Node.js on your VPS. This can be accomplished by using the commands below:

bashCopy codecurl -fsSL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

Verify Node.js Installation

To ensure Node.js has been installed correctly, you can display its version by typing the following command:

bashCopy codenode -v

Git Installation

Afterwards, Git will need to be installed. This can be done by entering:

sudo apt-get install git

Clone the GitHub Repository

With Git installed, you can now clone the verydogelabs/inscription-wallet repository to your VPS:

git clone

To navigate into the cloned repository, use the cd command:

cd inscription-wallet

Now, you are ready for the next step.
