Frequently Asked Questions

I already have MyNode / Umbrel running, can I use this tool too?

Yes! MyNode and Umbrel are both based on Linux and have Docker pre-installed. You can use all features of Bitcoin DCA.

Things you should keep in mind: The default user doesn’t have permission to run Docker by default. MyNode uses user admin and Umbrel uses umbrel.


Add your unprivileged user to the correct group to execute Docker commands without root: $ sudo usermod -aG docker ${USER}. You might need to log out & log back in for this to take effect.

See Getting started for more information.

How do I make sure the time is set up correctly?

You can check the current system time with this command:

$ date
Fri May 28 08:46:37 CEST 2021

In some cases, it is possible that the timezone is configured incorrectly. On MyNode, Umbrel or on any other Debian-based system you can update this as following:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
