What are the requirements to run a node on betanet? #
- 250 GB SSD storage
- Quad core CPU less than 10 years old if self hosting
- Dual core CPU works if hosted with newer Xeons / EPYC
- 16 GB of ram, 4+ GB of virtual memory recommended
- Hosting: 8 GB RAM + 8 GB Virtual Memory
How do GUI and CLI features help me in operating a node? #
With GUI, you can start running a node with a few clicks of your mouse. Shardeum is one of the first L1 networks to enable user-friendly GUI feature for node validators. CLI is the primary interface used by the vast majority of blockchain networks. It is enabled for more advanced users and developers who intend to work with nodes more deeply and technically
What is the reward I will get by running an honest node on betanet? #
Your node will earn Betanet SHM, but these will not have any value. That said, we will be keeping track of the addresses that helped out during Betanet. While we haven’t yet decided on Mainnet rewards for Betanet users, we’ll announce in due time if and when it is decided.
Can I operate archive nodes on betanet? #
During betanet the community can operate Validator nodes. After mainnet, the community can also operate Archiver nodes.
What is the process for bug bounties? #
Details of the bounties will be announced after the release of Betanet.
Where do I report the bugs on betanet? #
Please report bugs on the Sphinx network here.
When and how can I apply for grants? #
The Shardeum Foundation plans to launch a grants program in 2023. Early adopters that have demonstrated measurable progress in development and community growth on Shardeum’s testnets will be prioritized.
I am not looking for grants but I am keen to get your support in promoting the dApp I am building on Shardeum #
Please submit this form
Can I get advisory support from the team for my project? #
Shardeum’s Leadership Advisory Group is available to brainstorm and discuss the potential of projects and its GTM strategy. These leaders have led and helped world-class projects launch and succeed, and they are available to help and advise.
Where can I look for active projects that are deployed on Shardeum so far? #
You can find and interact with the active projects building on Shardeum in our ecosystem page of the website here
How can I get my dApp to be enlisted or added as part of active projects on Shardeum? #
Please list your dApps that you are building on Shardeum here
Why does it take several days for my node to move from standby to validator nodes? #
Please know that we just launched Sphinx recently so it takes time for projects and DApps to deploy their contracts and/or integrate with the network. Once we have more projects building on Sphinx, we will have more users using the products and services built on the network. And that will create a multiplier effect resulting in terms of number of transactions on the network. When the transaction volume increases, the network will detect the higher load and subsequently accepts more active validators with a more frequent node rotation. This will take some time as you can imagine. We request you to be patient till such time and stay excited to operate a node as easily as you could on Shardeum. Let’s enable decentralization for all!
