Introduction

The following guide aims to provide examples to help you start building Dash-based applications. To make the best use of this document, you may want to install the current version of Dash Core, either from source or from a pre-compiled executable.

Once installed, you'll have access to three programs: dashd, dash-qt, and dash-cli.

  • dash-qt provides a combination full Dash peer and wallet frontend. From the Help menu, you can access a console where you can enter the RPC commands used throughout this document.

  • dashd is more useful for programming: it provides a full peer which you can interact with through RPCs to port 9998 (or 19998 for testnet / 19898 for regtest).

  • dash-cli allows you to send RPC commands to dashd from the command line. For example, dash-cli help
