Join the Network
Node operators should expect to provision one or more data center locations with redundant power, networking, firewalls, HSMs and servers.
The minimum hardware specifications are as follows, though they might rise as network usage increases:
6+ vCPU x64
32+ GB RAM
500 GB+ SSD
See the Injective chain releases repo for the most recent releases. Non-validator node operators do not need to install
sudo mv peggo /usr/bin
sudo mv injectived /usr/bin
sudo mv libwasmvm.x86_64.so /usr/lib
Initialize a New Injective Chain Node
Before running the Injective Chain node, we need to initialize the chain as well as the node's genesis file:
# The argument <moniker> is the custom username of your node, it should be human-readable.
# Injective Testnet has a chain-id of "injective-888"
injectived init $MONIKER --chain-id injective-888
init command will create
injectived default configuration files at
Prepare Configuration to Join Testnet
You should now update the default configuration with the Testnet's genesis file and application config file, as well as configure your persistent peers with seed nodes.
git clone https://github.com/InjectiveLabs/testnet.git
# copy genesis file to config directory
aws s3 cp s3://injective-snapshots/testnet/genesis.json . --no-sign-request
mv genesis.json ~/.injectived/config/
# copy config file to config directory
cp testnet/corfu/70001/app.toml ~/.injectived/config/app.toml
cp testnet/corfu/70001/config.toml ~/.injectived/config/config.toml
You can also run verify the checksum of the genesis checksum - a4abe4e1f5511d4c2f821c1c05ecb44b493eec185c0eec13b1dcd03d36e1a779
