Requirements

Installing dependencies and setting things up are required to run a node.
You can either run a node on your own hardware or use a cloud provider. We would recommend choosing one of the big cloud providers, e.g. Amazon AWS, Google Cloud.
Bare metal with equivalent or high specs are even better.

For normal node

Minimum hardware specifications:
  • CPU: 4 cores
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • Network bandwidth: 1 Gbps
  • Storage: SSD (solid-state drive)
  • Storage capacity: depends on the types of your nodes.
    • 2.5 TB: is sufficient if you're running using a pruned datadir.
    • 5 TB: is needed if you'd like to run with a full size (non-pruned) datadir.
    • 1 TB: is sufficient if you're running using a no-history genesis in snapsync mode (and then wait till it get synced to the latest block).
Operating system: Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS (64 bit)

For validator node

Minimum hardware specifications:
  • CPU: 8 cores
  • RAM: 32GB
  • Network bandwidth: 1 Gbps
  • Storage: SSD (solid-state drive)
  • Storage capacity: depends on the types of your nodes.
    • 2.5 TB: is sufficient if you're running using a pruned datadir.
    • 5 TB: is needed if you'd like to run with a full size (non-pruned) datadir.
    • 1 TB: is sufficient if you're running using a no-history genesis in snapsync mode (and then wait till it get synced to the latest block).
Operating system: Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS (64 bit)
Once you have prepared your machine,
