Installing CometBFT

Installing CometBFT

In addition to the Namada binaries, it is required to install CometBFT before running Namada.

Downloading the latest release

Namada is compatible with CometBFT release v0.37.2

You can download the precompiled CometBFT binaries from their official GitHub repository (opens in a new tab).

  • Download release v0.37.2 for use with Namada here (opens in a new tab).
  • While newer versions may be available on the release version, these have not been tested to be fully compatible and should not be used with Namada.

Adding the CometBFT binary to $PATH

If you have go installed and downloaded, you may want to add the CometBFT binary to your $GOPATH/bin directory. This can be done by running the following command in the root directory of the repository

cp /path/to/cometbft/binary $GOPATH/bin/

Otherwise, we recommend you simply copy it to your /usr/local/bin which may require sudo permissions.

sudo cp /path/to/cometbft/binary /usr/local/bin/

In order to check that the installation was successful, you can run the following command

cometbft version

Which should output something like:

0.37.2
