Get Started

While Sensei is in beta the only way to install is it to build it yourself from source. When a stable release is ready we will publish binaries for major platforms and release apps for the popular node-in-a-box providers.


You will need rust to build Sensei. If you need instructions for how to set this up on your machine please see the rust-lang instructions.

Currently Sensei requires bitcoind with an electrum server running in order to work. Before the 1.0 release we plan to support more backends.

Install and run Sensei

  • Clone the repository git clone
  • Move into the directory cd sensei
  • Run from source cargo run --bin senseid -- --network=regtest
