From Binaries


Prebuilt binaries might not be available for a specific release or architecture, in this case you have to build from source.

Installing Tendermint

Namada binaries require a unique fork of Tendermint from Heliax. Please follow these instructions.

Installing GLIBC

Finally, you should have GLIBC v2.29 or higher.

MacOS: the system-provided glibc should be recent enough.

Ubuntu 20.04: this is installed by default and you don't have to do anything more.

Ubuntu 18.04: glibc has v2.27 by default which is lower than the required version to run Namada. We recommend to directly install from source or upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04, instead of updating glibc to the required version, since the latter way can be a messy and tedious task. In case, updating glibc would interest you this website gives you the steps to build the package from source.

Downloading the binaries

Now that you have all dependencies installed, you can download the latest binary release from our releases page by choosing the appropriate architecture.

Placing the binaries onto $PATH

For ubuntu and mac machines, the following command should work for placing namada into path

Once inside the directory containing the binaries:

sudo cp ./namada* /usr/local/bin/
