Quick start

We've launched our Mainnet Candidate network!
The vast majority of instructions relating to the node are identical or highly similar than those for the Testnet. More complete instructions & resources are coming soon, here are some quick technical instructions on how to get started right away.
​

Install a node on the mainnet candidate on Linux

Node operations are basically the same as those on the Testnet, here's how you can install a node on Linux.
mkdir -p mainnet/config
cd mainnet
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Taraxa-project/taraxa-ops/master/taraxa_compose_mainnet/docker-compose.yml
docker-compose up -d
docker-compose logs
More instructions and scripts for other environments coming soon.

​

Find node's public address

It's the same command as the one on testnet, except the container name is different. Instead of taraxa_compose_node_1, it's mainnet_node_1.
docker exec mainnet_node_1 cat /opt/taraxa_data/conf/wallet.json
Per usual this name may be different in different environments, so to be sure you've got the right container name, just execute docker ps.

​

Get node proof of ownership

It's the same command as the one on testnet, except the container name is different. Instead of taraxa_compose_node_1, it's mainnet_node_1.
docker exec mainnet_node_1 taraxa-sign sign --wallet /opt/taraxa_data/conf/wallet.json
Per usual this name may be different in different environments, so to be sure you've got the right container name, just execute docker ps
​

Upgrade

To update the node please run the following commands in the mainnet directory:
wget -O docker-compose-new.yml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Taraxa-project/taraxa-ops/master/taraxa_compose_mainnet/docker-compose.yml && mv docker-compose-new.yml docker-compose.yml
sudo docker-compose down
sudo docker-compose pull
sudo docker-compose up -d
sudo docker-compose logs -f
