Method 2: PKT Mining on AWS Using Docker Image (Updated March 2022)

Occasionally, the method described above will not work for a variety of reasons. However, the Docker image method will always work.

Step 1:

First, update your existing list of packages:

sudo apt update

Step 2:

Installing a few prerequisite packages lets apt use packages over HTTPS:

sudo apt install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl software-properties-common

Step 3:

Add the GPG key for the official Docker repository to your system:

curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -

Step 4:

Add the Docker repository to your APT sources:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] focal stable"

Step 5:

To update our package database with the latest versions of Docker, we’re going to add the Docker repo to Ubuntu.

apt-cache policy docker-ce

Step 6:

After all that, you’re ready to install Docker. Don’t forget to type Y and hit Enter.

sudo apt install docker-ce

Step 7:

Docker should be installed, the daemon started, and the process enabled to start on boot. Check that this is true:

sudo systemctl status docker

Step 8:

It’s time to install the PKT docker image. Type:

docker pull thomasjp0x42/packetcrypt

Step 9:

Replace the wallet address with yours:

docker run thomasjp0x42/packetcrypt ann -p <your_wallet_address> <pool_1> <pool_2> <pool_3>

It would be something like this:

docker run thomasjp0x42/packetcrypt ann -p pkt1qnrrhxwarlm4x4a47zxu0shylm4jh502vj9jypu

When you see ke/s, it means it’s working fine.
