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
Our base recommendation is a device with the equivalent capacity of a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, with a 64GB SD.
The process has been designed to be as straight forward as possible.
The process is as follows:
Install Docker (vs. 18.06+)
Install Edge Cli (
Connect your device to your console.edge.network account
Provide your refundable proof of stake (the wallet address will be provided by a member of the team)
Await enabling for production traffic in the network
$ echo "deb https://archive.edge.network/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/edge.list
$ wget -q -O - https://archive.edge.network/KEY.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt update
$ 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.
$ edge-cli login -u "[email protected]"
$ edge-cli register
$ edge-cli start
edge-cli start will return a message if your device hasn’t been funded.
