cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

sudo nano bitcoin.list

We’re almost ready to start the compiling process. We only need to change the libssl version to an older version. We can do this by the following commands:

cd && sudo apt-get remove libssl-dev

Set your repository list to point to "jessie " instead of "stretch", and save and exit this by ctrl x and clicking y:

If you changed it to Jessie update again and install libssl-dev again.

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

Now let’ get started. First we will make a folder for the BC wallet by:

mkdir bitcoinc

If the folder is made we move into that folder by the following command:

cd bitcoinc


Now we need to clone the BC source


git clone https://github.com/Bitcoin-Confidential/BitcoinC-Core.git


If the cloning is done you will see there is a new folder. You can see this folder by running the ls command:

ls

Now let’s move into the source folder as root by typing:


sudo -i 

cd /home/pi/bitcoinc/BitcoinC-Core/



This is one of the latest steps. We are going to compile the wallet right now. This can take a while! don’t worry just grab a beer and wait. We can start the compiling by the following command:

sudo qmake && sudo make


If it’s al done you we be back in the ~/bitcoinc/BitcoinC-Core  folder. We can now run the wallet just by typing: 


./bitcoinc-qt

To make life easier we can make a shortcut on our Desktop. We do this by typing:


cp BitcoinC-Core /home/pi/Desktop


Congrats! You got a wallet running on your raspberryPI!!
