This article is part of the Admin Setup (Step-by-Step) guide.
After setting up your DigitalOcean account, click Create Droplet to start a new server:
Click the dropdown box under Ubuntu and choose 16.04 x64 as the distribution (instead of the default 18.04):
The size of the DigitalOcean droplet you create will depend on which coins you intend to support.
Current cryptocurrency options include: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Zcash, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, and Litecoin.
- For one to three coins (not including Ethereum), use 8 GB RAM / 4 vCPUs.
- To support Ethereum and/or four coins or more, use 16 GB RAM / 6 vCPUs.
Do not click the green create button yet, as we'll continue to additional options in the next steps.
