Install Oasis Node Binary

The Oasis Node is a binary that is created from the Oasis Core repository’s go/ path.

It contains both the logic for running an Oasis node and also provides a CLI for handling registry, staking and other operations.


The Oasis Node is currently only supported on x86_64 Linux systems.

Downloading a Binary Release


We suggest that you build Oasis Node from source yourself for a production deployment of an Oasis node.

For convenience, we provide binaries that have been built by the Oasis Protocol Foundation. Links to the binaries are provided in the Network Parameters page.

Building From Source

Although highly suggested, building from source is currently beyond the scope of this documentation.

See Oasis Core’s Build Environment Setup and Building documentation for more details.


The code in the master branch might be incompatible with the code used by other nodes in the Mainnet.

Make sure to use the version specified in the Network Parameters.

Adding oasis-node Binary to PATH

To install the oasis-node binary for the current user, copy/symlink it to ~/.local/bin.

To install the oasis-node binary for all users of the system, copy it to /usr/local/bin.

Running ParaTimes

If you intend to run a ParaTime node you will need to additionally install the following software packages:

  • Bubblewrap 0.4.1+, needed for creating process sandboxes.

On Ubuntu 20.04+, you can install it with:

sudo apt install bubblewrap

On Fedora, you can install it with:

sudo dnf install bubblewrap
