Nodes are decentralized systems that provide compute resources that keep the network running.

Nodes provide computational resources that process transactions and store data.

Setup a Node

There are two types of Nodes:

  • Full Node: Contains the complete technology stack.
  • Light Node: Contains a limited set of essential components to run the application.

For detail steps on how to deploy your own Full of Light node, please refer to the Deployment Page.

Connect to a Node

In cases you are running a Light Node, there are some configuration parameters that might need to be configured for the application to connect correctly.

configuration parameters


As a validator, you can provide computing resources to the application. The recommended spec for running a validator are the following:

CPU - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz
Storage - An NVMe solid state drive of 1 TB (As it should be reasonably sized to deal with blockchain growth).
Memory - 64GB ECC.
