Binary releases can be downloaded from https://github.com/status-im/nimbus-eth2/releases/latest.

We currently have binaries available for Linux AMD64, ARM and ARM64, Windows AMD64 and macOS (AMD64 and ARM64).

Download

The binaries are available at the bottom of the page under Assets. You should see a list that looks like the following:

Assets

Click on the file that corresponds to your OS and architecture, unpack the archive, read the README and run the binary directly (or through one of our provided wrapper scripts).

Installation

To install or upgrade a binary release, simply unpack the downloaded archive in a directory of your choice.

# Create a directory that can hold the beacon chain data and applications - this should be a fast SSD
mkdir -p nimbus-eth2
# Unpack the archive into the `nimbus-eth2` directory you just created
tar xvf nimbus-eth2_Linux_amd64_22.6.1_2444e994.tar.gz --strip-components 1 -C nimbus-eth2

After unpacking, you may wish to verify the checksum.

Reproducible builds

We've designed the build process to be reproducible. In practice, this means that anyone can verify that these exact binaries were produced from the corresponding source code commits. For more about the philosophy and importance of this feature see reproducible-builds.org.

For instructions on how to reproduce those binaries, see "README.md" inside the archive, as well as the in-depth guide.
