Running an Aleph Node on Mainnet

Running a node on the Mainnet is very similar to the Testnet, with only a few important differences:
  • some configuration variables change (most importantly the BOOT_NODES)
  • snapshot and chainspec need to be downloaded from the appropriate locations
  • Aleph Node Runner users need to supply the --mainnet flag
  • There admission process is permissionless and requires no input from the user. The only hard requirement is the minimal bond of 25000 AZERO
