Join the Network
Validators should expect to provision one or more data center locations with redundant power, networking, firewalls, HSMs and servers.
We initially recommend this minimum hardware specifications and they might rise as network usage increases.

Install injectived and peggo
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 actually running the Injective Chain node, we need to initialize the chain, and most importantly its genesis file.
# The argument <moniker> is the custom username of your node, it should be human-readable.
# the Injective Chain has a chain-id of "injective-888"
injectived init $MONIKER --chain-id injective-888
Running this 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 a seed node.
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
Configure systemd service for injectived
Edit the config at
ExecStart=/bin/bash -c '/usr/bin/injectived --log-level=error start'
Starting and restarting the systemd service
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart injectived
sudo systemctl status injectived
# enable start on system boot
sudo systemctl enable injectived
# To check Logs
journalctl -u injectived -f
Sync with the network
sudo systemctl stop injectived
aws s3 sync --acl public-read --no-sign-request --delete s3://injective-snapshots/testnet/injectived/data $HOME/.injectived/data
aws s3 sync --acl public-read --no-sign-request --delete s3://injective-snapshots/testnet/injectived/wasm $HOME/.injectived/wasm
sudo systemctl start injectived
