Installing Ethereum's geth on macOS

A quick guide of what worked for me. 

Geth is the official implementation that allows you to run an Ethereum node. There are several others.

I installed it with Homebrew based on the official geth guide for macOS.

Homebrew installation:

$ su admin
$ /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

Geth installation:

$ su admin
$ brew tap ethereum/ethereum
$ brew install ethereum

Verify (as regular user):

$ geth
  • wait for message "Starting P2P networking"
  • interrupt (Ctrl-C)
  • check that there are no obvious errors
