diva.exchange

Distributed value exchange upholding security, reliability and privacy.

Diva is an application (free software, GPLv3). It enables everyone to manage and trade digital values (like crypto currencies). Every installation of diva (like on your laptop) is your personal and private bank and exchange. There is no dependency to any cloud or other central service. Diva includes all necessary services locally. Therefore a complete diva installation consists of several parts:

  • an instance of the “Hyperledger/Iroha” Blockchain
  • the private and secure communication network “I2P” (aka “darknet”)
  • the diva application

There are two flavours of diva available: a light version (without blockchain instance) and a full version (everything).

About

This is a research project driven by a small community of researchers which are highly motivated by exploring and understanding the unknown. Respect the GPLv3 license terms!

How to get in touch

You can get in touch using the features on this platform, via Issues or Pull Requests, or you can use one of those channels:

Please contact us in English or German.

Beware of Dragons

This project is unstable and highly experimental. Feedback and pull requests are always welcome!

Get Started - Local Installation

To get diva up and running, achieve this:

  1. Install Docker and Docker Compose
  2. Pull the diva repositories from codeberg
  3. Build the Docker images within your local environment
  4. Start the Docker containers

Please read on to get that done!

Currently diva requires Docker. Docker is just a “Container Framework” helping you to install “something else” on your existing system (like your laptop) without interfering with your existing environment. Docker works on Linux, MacOS and Windows.

Get a short overview of Docker here: https://docs.docker.com/get-started/. Just read the short introduction to get the point (first two paragraphs).

How to Install Docker and Docker Compose

Install Docker and Docker Compose before you install diva.

Windows

Docker: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/install/

Docker Compose: https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/

MacOS

Docker: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/install/

Docker Compose: https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/

Linux

Usually just something like: sudo apt-get install docker.io More details, Ubuntu flavours: https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/ubuntu/

Docker Compose: https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/

How to Install diva

Have you installed Docker? If not, please do so first (see above).

Now get the diva repository via clone or download:

  1. clone the diva repository: git clone https://codeberg.org/diva.exchange/diva.git ~/diva.exchange/diva

  2. download and unpack the code repository to your local device.

    We assume that you store the downloaded repository within your User folder, which is usually located here:

    • Windows: C:\Users\YourUsername\
    • MacOS: /Users/YourUsername/
    • Linux/Ubuntu flavour: /home/YourUsername/

    We assume as well, that you create a folder called “diva.exchange” within your User folder where you unpack the DIVA repository.

Then, from the project folder and using your terminal:

  1. Install the project by running: ./bin/install.sh
  2. Then start it by running: ./bin/start.sh

Test it, as privileged user: docker ps -a should show a running i2pd container and an iroha container. Also, test it with your browser: http://localhost:7070 - you should see the I2Pd webconsole. I2P is up and running.

You also have now two services available locally: the application DIVA and the API.

  • The application on http://localhost:3911 (this is DIVA - all you do happens locally - no data transferred over the network).
  • The API is boring but super important. You can access it using your browser, http://localhost:3912.

⚠️ Please note: your using a development branch. There might be dragons.

How to Stop

To stop, yet keep the containers and data, run from the project folder:

./scripts/cleanup.sh

How to Stop and Clean Up

To stop and completely remove the docker container. All data within the containers (like the blockchain) will be lost - that’s fine if you want to have a fresh start.

Run from the project folder:

./scripts/cleanup.sh

How to Build the Docker Images

Windows

tbd.

Linux and MacOS

tbd.

First Glance at I2P

Use the i2pd web-console to explore the i2pd router running within the docker container i2pd. To access the webconsole, open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:7070.

I2P needs some time to get properly integrated in the network. Please be patient for at least 3 minutes.

To access the I2P network just set the HTTP proxy of your favourite browser (Firefox, see: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-settings-firefox) to localhost:4444. Depending on your browser your mileage may vary.

After changing the HTTP proxy, your chosen browser will be connected to the I2P network and you can navigate to http://diva.i2p or any other I2P site of your choice.
