Setting up a Host

Host onboarding is temporailly suspended. It is expected to open again in June

Onboarding is now open for Host nodes on the Edge network, with support for Linux based AMD64/ARM devices available.

You can access our Apt repository here: archive.edge.network

Minimum Specifications

Our base recommendation is a device with the equivalent capacity of a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, with a 64GB SD.

Devices with higher performance/capacity will return a higher yield

Installation Process

The process has been designed to be as straight forward as possible.

The process is as follows:

  1. Install Docker (vs. 18.06+)

  2. Install Edge Cli (edge-cli)

  3. Connect your device to your console.edge.network account

  4. Provide your refundable proof of stake (the wallet address will be provided by a member of the team)

  5. Await enabling for production traffic in the network

Installing Cli

Add the Edge Repository to Your Sources

$ echo "deb https://archive.edge.network/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/edge.list

Import the Public Key for the Repository

$ wget -q -O - https://archive.edge.network/KEY.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Update Apt

$ sudo apt update

Install Edge Cli

$ sudo apt install edge-cli

Once done you will need to add you device your account at console.edge.network, which is done at the command line through Cli, as shown in the following steps.

Attach Your Device to Your Account

$ edge-cli login -u "[email protected]"

Register your Device

$ edge-cli register

Start the Node

$ edge-cli start

Note that edge-cli start will return a message if your device hasn’t been funded.

You only need to runedge-cli startonce. Edge self-restarts, including on reboot
