Bitfount Quick Start

Welcome to Bitfount! We’re glad to have you here. Deploying Bitfount involves a few easy steps:

  1. Create Account: If you don’t have access already, sign up to join the wait-list for a Bitfount account at
  2. Install Bitfount: Run:
pip install bitfount
  • Bitfount requires Python 3.8 or 3.9 to be installed.

  • If you wish to explore Bitfount without installing our libraries locally, please see our interactive tutorials.

  • For more detailed installation guides by operating system, see the Installation Guides in the dropdown menu on the left.

  1. Connect Data: You or your partners will need to connect data to a Pod and set up access controls prior to analysis. We recommend starting with the Running a Pod Tutorial to see how this process works. For details on how to connect your own data, see For Data Custodians.
  2. Analyse Data: You or your partners can train Bitfount-supported or custom models on Pod-connected data. We recommend executing the Running a Pod Tutorial and the Querying and Training a Model Tutorial to learn the basics of this process. For more detailed instructions, please see For Data Scientists.
