Bitcoin-like Crypto Running on Raspberry Pi

About: Author of the USOS operating system, Low cost cryptocurrency inspired on Satoshi Nakamoto. Please, participate along with me in making a distributed dev community around US cryptosystem.

Instructions for running a node.

The USOS Operating System is made of raspbian running the us-cryptoplatform package.

You don't have to ask for permission to join.

Just follow these simple instructions and run a node earning cryptocurrency every minute,

with negligible cost in hardware, energy or bandwidth.

Both Raspbian and us-cryptoplatform are Free open source software.


An usual configuration is when you have:
* Internet Router with a *public* IP4 address (either static or dynamic).

* Raspberry PI 3B+ with at least 16GB of SDCard capacity.

* An Android mobile or tablet.

* A laptop with SDCard reader at hand for the initial setup.

Step 1: Set Up

In your laptop:
download and install the Tor browser from

Use Tor to access this URL: http://j4s7lnwr7uzorjfk.onion/

Step 2: Have USOS Operating System Downloaded

USOS is an operating System for Raspberry Pi derived from raspbian, which is derived from debian.

USOS adds up the Crypto-platform protocol.

Download the Operating System image for raspberry pi:

It will take some time as it is pretty big file (~2GB)

Remember the directory where you saved it.

Step 3: Record the SD Card

Use a program like Etcher

to Record USOS into the micro SDCard

Step 4: Assemble Pi and Connect to Router

Insert the SDCard with USOS Operating System into the raspberry PI.

Connect the raspberry pi to your home router using a (short) ethernet cable.

Power Up the raspberry pi.

Check your Router

UPNP shall be enabled. The node needs to program port forwarding for the following ports:





Step 5: Find Out the Local IP Address of Your Node

From your laptop of home computer:


check your local ip (in this example we assess we're in 192.168.0.*)

$> hostname -I

Find other computers in your LAN

$> nmap -sP 192.168.0.*
gt; nmap -sP 192.168.0.*

gt; nmap -sP 192.168.0.*

gt; nmap -sP 192.168.0.*

Nmap scan report for<br>Host is up (0.0018s latency).
MAC Address: B8:27:EB:EC:D5:A6 (Raspberry Pi Foundation) 

In this example the IP address of the node would be


Use the default credentials:

user: gov
