  • These commands will retrieve the latest, stable version of the Akash software, store the version in a local variable, and install that version.
cd ~/Downloads
AKASH_VERSION="$(curl -s "")"
curl | sh -s -- "v$AKASH_VERSION"

  • Move the binary file into a directory included in your path
sudo mv ./bin/akash /usr/local/bin

Download the archive for your system from the release page, extract it, and install the akash binary into your path.

# configure akash version
AKASH_VERSION="$(curl -s "")"
# install akash
curl | sh -s -- "v$AKASH_VERSION"
The final step is to make sure that the akash binaries are available in your shell PATH. This page contains instructions for setting the PATH on Linux.

Installing Akash suite from source
$ go get -d
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git checkout "v$AKASH_VERSION"
$ make deps-install
$ make install
Akash is developed and tested with golang 1.16+. Building requires a working golang installation, a properly set GOPATH, and $GOPATH/bin present in $PATH.
Once you have the dependencies properly setup, download and build akash using make install
