Command line interface for making swaps and trades on TDEX
- Install with yarn
$ yarn global add tdex-cli
- Install with npm

Custom datadir (optional)
Configure custom directory for data persistence. You should have write permissions.
$ export TDEX_CLI_PATH=/absolute/path/to/data/dir $ tdex-cli help
- Show current persisted state
$ tdex-cli info
- Set the network to work against
NOTICE With the --explorer flag you can set your own electrum REST server (Blockstream/electrs) for connecting to the blockchain.
# Mainnet # This uses blockstream.info as explorer $ tdex-cli network liquid # Regtest # This uses nigiri.network as explorer $ tdex-cli network regtest # Custom Esplora $ tdex-cli network regtest --explorer http://localhost:3001

Advanced: BUY/SELL example on regtest with Nigiri
This example shows how to buy and sell tokens using a tdex daemon running on a Nigiri regtest network and
Run the daemon
- Clone and build the daemon from Tdex-network/tdex-daemon
$ git clone https://github.com/TDex-network/tdex-daemon $ cd tdex-daemon $ make build-linux $ make build-cli-linux
- Launch the tdex daemon
make run-linux sets env variables such as the daemon use the default nigiri regtest network.
$ nigiri start --liquid $ make run-linux
Then let's use the operator CLI to setting up our daemon.
# init the cli configuration $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 config init # generate a new mnemonic $ SEED=$(./build/tdex-linux-amd64 genseed) # init the provider's wallet $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 init --seed $SEED --password secret # unlock the wallet using the password $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 unlock --password secret
Next, we need to fund the fee account of our provider.
$ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 depositfee # the wallet will return a confidential address, we need to send some LBTC to this one # here, we use nigiri faucet for example # /!\ REPLACE by your deposit address /!\ $ nigiri faucet --liquid YOUR_FEE_ACCOUNT_ADDRESS_HERE
Well, now let's create a market:
# first create an empty market $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 depositmarket # this will return an address, we need to send it some LBTC and some ALTCOIN # again, let's use nigiri for that # let's fund the market address with LBTC # LBTC will be the base asset of the market $ nigiri faucet --liquid YOUR_MARKET_ADDRESS # Let's generate a new ALTCOIN and send 100 assets to the market address # The generated altcoin will be the quote_asset $ nigiri mint YOUR_MARKET_ADDRESS 100 # /!\ Copy the altcoin asset hash in the clipboard!
We need to open the new market, by default a new market is not tradable.
# Select the market using `config set` $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 config set base_asset 5ac9f65c0efcc4775e0baec4ec03abdde22473cd3cf33c0419ca290e0751b225 $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 config set quote_asset ALTCOIN_ASSET_HASH_HERE # Then make the market tradable $ ./build/tdex-linux-amd64 open
Congrats! The daemon is running and has a tradable market LBTC/ALTCOIN.
tdex-cli to trade
Now we will use
tdex-cli, the CLI for traders.
# set up network to regtest + config local nigiri explorer $ tdex-cli network regtest --explorer http://127.0.0.1:3001 # connect to localhost daemon $ tdex-cli connect localhost:9945 # generate new wallet (or import it from seed) using wallet $ tdex-cli wallet # let's generate a new address and fund it $ tdex-cli wallet address $ nigiri faucet --liquid TRADER_ADDRESS_HERE
Our trader account owns LBTC, thus he can use
trade to SELL them (and so buy some altcoins!).
# list the market available $ tdex-cli market list # copy the market recently created, it should be something like 'LBTC-6f02' # then select this market (replace by your market pair!) $ tdex-cli market LBTC-6f02 # use `trade` and select SELL and follow the instructions $ tdex-cli trade
We have sent 1 LBTC and receive 50.125 ALTCOINs ! Now I BUY some LBTC using my ALTCOINs:
# Select the BUY option this time! $ tdex-cli trade # and follow the instructions, try to buy 1 BTC
