Here is a simple sandbox environment for trying out the bitcoin command line interface! Select Start Scenario to bootstrap your own private instance!

Please note that this instance has been configured in regtest mode for the sake of testing. Or as Satoshi famously said:

Please do these tests on the test network. That’s what it’s for. Thanks.

Alternatively, we have also provided a simple docker container configured in regtest mode that you can install for testing purposes.

gr0kchain:~ $ docker volume create --name=bitcoind-data
