Block Collider Node (ARC BLOCK)

Release Candidate 2 - "Arc Block"

Mining node with Borderless SAFE MODE OFF. Trades can be executed between all five blockchains. This is meant for development only.


  • This is real Bitcoin, Ethereum, NEO, Waves. Lost coins cannot be recovered, redacted, or reset. It is both the point and the consequence of a truly decentralized marketplace.
  • This could be called the 'nightly' build in that it versions very quickly until April 21st 2019.
  • If you are running this there is a private group on embnation.com (think Bitcoin Phantom IRC in the old days). It is invite only.
  • Running this node assumes you are a programmer, better yet you are an Evangelist or member of Block Collider Advanced.
  • Everything is open source in this repo except for the final NRG regard algorithm and the move from the 32 bit to 64 PoD to prevent ASIC fabrication.


  1. Check behind you for validators.
  2. Download and run BORDERLESS http://borderless.blockcollider.org install instructions you will need a BSEC wallet https://portal.blockcollider.org
  3. Once you have uploaded your wallet, in the upper right hand side select Settings. The following fields will be available: hostname, port, and secure cookie.
  4. Edit the secure cookie field with a secret value.
  5. Once you have done so start up your miner and append '--scookie={YOUR SECRET VALUE}',
  6. Refresh BORDERLESS and welcome to UD MODE.

The Vote

On April 21st, on EMB Nation, the community will spend two days trying out the final build. The vote will either extend development a month or release the ARC BLOCK to the world.

Getting NRG

Unique to an ARC Block Node your node will mine on it's own by default.

Selecting An Executive Branch

Unique to an ARC Block Node you can join hidden executive branches (get it?) which allow you to sync your blocks and compete with other miners. Enter at your own risk.

  • carter
  • mckinley
  • garfield
  • lincoln
  • harding
  • kennedy
  • coolidge

To specify an executive branch add the environment variable 'export BC_NETWORK="EXECUTIVE BRANCH NAME}"'

Where is my NRG from Before Target

If you were a miner lucky enough to participate in Before Target your NRG balance in the arc block. We won't release it until after the community vote on April 21st. No Bitcoin Gold double-spend foolery!

Help & Support


Rumor the forger has fired up the kiln again and the mysterious forged Emblems, founders hoodies, and other gear will appear and disappear through the month on EMB Nation, the code base, and the Executive Branches. We will also be hiding private keys around filled with DOGE because who can haz fun big no DOGE. We will never give away EMB.
