AXE is a decentralized X11-based cryptocurrency. The foundation of AXE network is hybrid PoW/PoSe system. First-tier nodes provide hash power to move data and secure the blockchain, while the second tier of full nodes adds extra privacy and increases network performance.
AXE core clients are full nodes, upgradeable to Masternodes and the most secure way to access the network. Full node client downloads a complete copy of the blockchain and participating in transactions verification. Thin (mobile) clients are using SPV protocol to communicate with full nodes and perform operations without downloading a full copy of the blockchain.

The second tier of AXE network - masternodes. They sustain a certain minimum level of network performance and provide additional privacy (PoSe).
Allows for near-instant transactions. AXE InstantSend transactions are fully confirmed within four seconds.
Gives you financial privacy by obscuring the source of funds on the blockchain.
Use AXE-gitian to perform deterministic binary builds using Vagrant and VirtualBox with Ansible. This section covers build process on macOS (linux instructions). Gitian provides a way to be reasonably certain that the AXE executables are really built from the exact source on GitHub and have not been tampered with. It also makes sure that the same, tested dependencies are used and statically built into the executable.
Multiple developers build from source code by following a specific descriptor ("recipe"), cryptographically sign the result, and upload the resulting signature. These results are compared and only if they match is the build is accepted.
Download and install the latest version of GPG Suite from here.
Download and install the latest version of Vagrant from here.
Download and install the latest version of VirtualBox from here.
git clone https://github.com/AXErunners/axe-gitian
Edit your gitian.yml file:
# URL of repository containing AXE source code.
# Specific tag or branch you want to build.
# The [email protected] in the e-mail address of your GPG key, alternatively a key ID.
# OPTIONAL set to import your SSH key into the VM. Example: id_rsa, id_ed25519. Assumed to reside in ~/.ssh
Place Apple SDK tarball (MacOSX10.11.sdk.tar.gz) into axe-gitian folder for macOS builds.
Start the build with vagrant up --provision axe-build.
Then connect to the box with vagrant ssh axe-build.
Prepare the container and start building with:
#replace $SIGNER and $VERSION to match your gitian.yml
./gitian-build.py --setup $signer $version
./gitian-build.py -B $SIGNER $VERSION
Commit assertions from the box using git (access token might be needed) or use vagrant scpplugin to transfer data.
Enter the following file at the end: /swapfile none swap sw 0 0
Install AXE on VPS
git clone https://github.com/axerunners/axerunner
~/axerunner/axerunner install sentinel
Generate masternode bls key on local machine
Download AXE core from releases. Open your local Axe wallet (axe-qt)and let it sync with the network. After downloading the blockchain you can create masternode address with the key. Open debug console to enter bls generate and getaccountaddress mn. Send 1000 AXE to just generated mn address.
masternodeblsprivkey is generated with bls generate
Press enter to make sure there is a blank line at the end of the file, then press Ctrl + X to close the editor and Y and Enter save the file. We now need to restart the masternode for this change to take effect. Enter the following commands, waiting a few seconds in between to give Axe Core time to shut down:
Prepare a ProRegTx transaction
we need to get a new, unused address from the wallet to serve as the owner address. This is different to the collateral address
Then either generate or choose an existing second address to receive the owner’s masternode payouts:
You can also optionally generate and fund a third address to pay the transaction fee. The private keys to the owner and fee source addresses must exist in the wallet submitting the transaction to the network. If your wallet is protect by a password, it must now be unlocked to perform the following commands. Unlock your wallet for 5 minutes:
walletpassphrase yourSecretPassword 300
We will now prepare an unsigned ProRegTx special transaction using the protx register_prepare command. This command has the following syntax:
We will now submit the ProRegTx special transaction to the blockchain to register the masternode.
This command must be sent from a Axe Core wallet holding a balance, since a standard transaction fee
is involved. The command takes the following syntax:
protx register_submit tx sig
tx: The serialized transaction previously returned in the tx output field from the protx register_prepare command
sig: The message signed with the collateral key from the signmessage command
Your masternode is now registered and will appear on the Deterministic Masternode List after the transaction
is mined to a block. You can view this list on the Masternodes -> Masternodes tab of the Axe Core wallet,
or in the console using the command protx list valid, where the txid of the final protx register_submit
transaction identifies your DIP003 masternode.
At this point you can go back to your terminal window and monitor your masternode using axerunner/axerunner status,
by entering ~/.axecore/axe-cli masternode status
At this point you can safely log out of your server by typing exit. Congratulations!
Your masternode is now running.
Axe Electrum is a lightweight client for AXE network. Check with AXE wiki for more details. The source code is available at @AXErunners' GitHub repository.
Download binaries or follow this guide to install Axe Electrum from source on your system.
ElectrumX is a server-side application for AXE SPV protocol. The current version requires precise system configuration and is not fully automated for fast deployment. The script below is used for fast and easy setup of electrumx server on working AXE core node.
To start, input following line:
Finish the configuration by adding your AXE node's RPC login/pass in DAEMON_URL as user:[email protected]:/
DB_DIRECTORY = /db
# AXE node RPC credentials
DAEMON_URL = axerunner:[email protected]:9337/
# Listen on all interfaces:
#BANNER_FILE = /etc/electrumx/electrum.banner
#Uncomment the above line if you want to have a banner and create the banner file
Add the ports in the firewall exception:
sudo ufw allow 50001
sudo ufw allow 50002
Starting and stopping electrumx server service electrumx start service electrumx start
Create AXE address to receive payments
Download the Axe core, Axe Electrum or mobile client. Generate a new address to receive payments from the mining operation.
Connect to your ASIC miner and enter values according to the following sample:
