Technical Update: Factom Binaries

Tech Update Binaries

Our Dev Team has created easy to use Factom Binaries together with installers for WindowsMac, and Linux. There are three binaries required to run Factom: factomd, fctwallet, and factom-cli, they wrap up Factom in stand-alone executables that contain everything you need to run. Code, runtime, system tools, and system libraries are all held within the binaries. This guarantees that Factom will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running on. This means simplified and easier to use Factom. To get started, you will need to follow the “Factom Binaries Install Guide” available at http://factom.org/howto.

Work is in progress to have Factom available via Docker soon and we will release an announcement in due course.

Thanks for being an awesome and supportive community.
