Install Injectived

injectived is the command-line interface and daemon that connects to Injective and enables you to interact with the Injective blockchain. Injective core is the official Golang reference implementation of the Injective node software.


  • Golang v1.16.1 - go1.17.1 linux/amd64
  • Ensure your GOPATH and GOBIN environment variables are set up correctly.
  • Linux users: install build-essential.
  • 8 vCPU (4 physical core), x86_64 architecture processor
  • 64 GB RAM (or equivalent swap file set up)
  • 1 TB of storage space

Option 1: From binary

The easiest way to install injectived and Injective core is by downloading a pre-built binary for your operating system. Download the most recent Injective Chain binaries from the official injective-chain-releases repo.

# Make sure to check the releases repo for the most recent version!

This zip file will contain three binaries and a virtual machine:

  • injectived - the Injective Chain daemon
  • peggo - the Injective Chain ERC-20 bridge relayer daemon
  • injective-exchange - the Injective Exchange daemon
  • - the wasm virtual machine which is needed to execute smart contracts.

Unzip and add injectived, injective-exchange and peggo to your /usr/bin. Also add to user library path /usr/lib.

sudo mv injectived peggo injective-exchange /usr/bin
sudo mv /usr/lib

Check your binary version by running following commands.

injectived version
peggo version
injective-exchange version

Confirm your version matches the output below

injectived version
Version dev (f32e524)

peggo version
Version dev (b5c188c)

injective-exchange version
Version dev (ca1da5e)

Option 2: From source

Note: you will only install injectived but not injective-exchange, peggo or using this option.

Get the Injective core source code

Use git to retrieve Injective core.

Clone the injective repo:

git clone

Build Injective core from source

Build Injective core, and install the injectived executable to your GOPATH environment variable.

cd injective-core
make install
