AOK software runs on all operating systems: Linux, macOS and Windows. You can get latest binaries from GitHub or build it on your own using code from master branch.

Once you downloaded (or compiled) binaries at your machine, you will have this two binaries:

  • aokchaind - headless AOK daemon responsible for syncing blockchain and providing wallet service
  • aokchain-cli - command line client which allows interact with AOK node and wallet


You can specify node params in aokchain.conf file at .aokchain folder (or C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\AokChain on Windows).

./aokchaind -daemon

Stopping node

If you launched AOK node in daemon mode, it can be stopped using cli utility like this:

aokchain-cli stop
