Prepare to participate

Install RNode

We will not be working on the RChain test net. To participate in this session, please see instructions below.

Note If you used a previous version of RNode, please delete your existing .rnode directory. Most errors experienced using RNode v0.6.1 relate to content in the directory from a previous version.

Please install RNode prior to the start of the testing session. If you have run RNode previously please see  CORE-961 Getting issue details... STATUS  and  CORE-963 Getting issue details... STATUS  for support for resolving issues you may experience preventing the successful running of RNode today.

RNode version for this session

Updated 12:52 UTC We will use RChain Node 0.6.4 (5d620e25b42f328d046cf4b1596446be7f55fe9d)

Get the bootstrap address

Updated 12:52 UTC Connect to the network via the RChain testing bootstrap node shown on RNode bootstrap addresses.

NOTE the format of the bootstrap address changed. The new format is in dev and will move to other supported bootstrap nodes over the next few weeks. Please see RNode bootstrap addresses for more information.

Select a validator key

Create your run command

Now that you have your bootstrap address and validator key, you can run RNode. If you need more information, please see User guide for running RNode for running instructions.

Check your version

New You can now check your version of RNode via the gRPC server.

curl -s localhost:40403/version
