In this short tutorial you’ll see how to install the packages necessary to use the BitGo SDK. First you need to install Node.js, which you can find at this downloads page.

Installing Node.js will also install the Node package manager (npm), which you can use to download BitGo’s Javascript SDK package:

$> mkdir BitGoProject
$> cd BitGoProject
$> npm install --save bitgo

That’s it! You’ve downloaded all the packages necessary to start working with the SDK.

Next, make a BitGo account at, and then check out the Authentication Guide to see how to acquire an API access token. While using testnet, you can always use '0000000' as your OTP code. You can then explore the examples directory to get code snippets to start building!
