UTXO Chaincode

The UTXO example chaincode contains a single invocation function named execute. This function accepts BASE64 encoded transactions from the Bitcoin network. This chaincode will parse the transactions and pass the transaction components to the Bitcoin libconsensus C library for script verification.

The purpose of this chaincode is to

  1. Demonstrate how the world state can be used to store and process unspent transaction outputs (UTXO).

  2. Demonstrate how to include and use a C library from within a chaincode.

A client for exercising this chaincode is avilable at https://github.com/srderson/hyperledger-fabric-utxo-client-java.

The following are instructions for building and deploying the UTXO chaincode in Hypereledger Fabric. All commands should be run with vagrant.

First, build the Docker image for the UTXO chaincode.

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/hyperledger/fabric/examples/chaincode/go/utxo/
docker build -t utxo:0.1.0 .

Next, modify the core.yaml file in the Hyperledger Fabric project to point to the local Docker image that was built in the previous step. In the core.yaml file find chaincode.golang.Dockerfile and change it from from hyperledger/fabric-baseimage to utxo:0.1.0

Start the peer using the following commands

peer node start

In a second window, deploy the example UTXO chaincode

CORE_PEER_ADDRESS=localhost:7051 peer chaincode deploy -p github.com/hyperledger/fabric/examples/chaincode/go/utxo -c '{"Function":"init", "Args": []}'

Wait about 30 seconds for the chaincode to be deployed. Output from the window where the peer is running will indicate that this is successful.

Next, find the image ID for the deployed chaincode. Run

docker images

and look for the image ID of the most recently deployed chaincode. The image ID will likely be similar to


Make a note of this as we'll be using it later.

Stop the running peer.

Build a peer docker image by running the following test. This will allow for easy testing of the chaincode by giving us the ability to reset the database to a clean state.

go test github.com/hyperledger/fabric/core/container -run=BuildImage_Peer

Using the Docker image that we just built, start a peer within a container in chaincodedev mode.

docker run -it -p 7051:7051 -p 7053:7053 hyperledger/fabric-peer peer node start --peer-chaincodedev

In another window, start UTXO chaincode in a container. The refers to the UTXO image ID noted in a prior step.

docker run -it <image ID> /bin/bash

Build the UTXO chaincode.

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/hyperledger/fabric/examples/chaincode/go/utxo/
go build

In another window, deploy the chaincode

peer chaincode deploy -n utxo -c '{"Function":"init", "Args": []}'

The chaincode is now deployed and ready to accept transactions.
