Standalone Installation

Instructions for the installation of the standalone PowerAgent package


Recommended hardware requirements most likely will be capped from beneath by the requirements of your execution and consensus clients. However, if you install the PowerAgent on a separate machine than the blockchain node, it should have at least:

  • 2-Core relatively modern CPU

  • 8 GB RAM

  • 20 GB SSD

  • Linux-based OS (Debian or Ubuntu are a good choice)

The package is not configured to work on MacOS.

Standalone installation

  2. Start a terminal session.

  3. Clone the repo into a separate folder:

git clone
  1. Follow the instructions specified here: powerpool-finance/powerpool-agent-v2-compose ( to obtain a keyfile. Here is the short version:

git clone
cd powerpool-agent-v2-compose
npm i
node jsongen.js ${A} ${B}

where ${A} is the private key of your worker, and ${B} is the password you choose to encrypt the private key.
