Docker for easy Zcash Installation


Just a few hours ago I was contacted by Florian Maier @marsmensch via Twitter that he had created a Docker file to help speed up the Zcash  installation process.

For those of you who are not familiar with Docker, it’s a popular open source project based on Linux containers. Docker provides a lightweight environment to run code in to help simplify the installation process. For more details about Docker check out their website and watch a video tutorial here

With this build you can be mining Zcash (on the test-net) in no time.
