Running a Centrifuge node

Hi Guys,

Can we run a node on the windows OS?

Does anyone know of any video tutorial walkthroughs to set a node up?

I’m really excited to get going on this. :smiley:

I don’t think it’s suitable unless you have a dedicated pc , and I think you have to run some virtual Server which is the best way

Thanks for the info might look at getting a Raspberry Pi

If I did want to run it locally would I be looking to use the linux OS?

@SoraMigiSu : Are you trying this out for fun or in a “production” grade instance for an asset originator? If the latter, you should have some kind of fault tolerance and at least some dedicated hardware.
If you have a WinOS server, you could look at WSL to run linux code.
However, usually it’s easier to just run some native linux OS somewhere.

Kind regards

By this are you referring to remotely on the cloud

I’m going to keep studying to try an wrap my head around what I’d have to do, I defiantly fancy running a dedicated machine.

I like the idea of running the node locally and not through a proxy.

Thanks,
Nick

I’d like to run this hopefully

Ok, me personally I’d then run it in a cloud setup.

Hey Nick,

if you want to run a validator then uptime is key (yes, because of slashing) and I’d personally never put my tokens to a validator that runs its own hardware - unless I am extremely confident that they know what they are doing.

A good documentation on the topic at large you can find here. This is not 1:1 for Centrifuge, but gives you a good overview.

That makes sense, appreciate the explanation and I’ll definitely check the article out :+1:

What are we thinking is a ball park figure for the cost of the RADs to run a node for an asset originator?

Mods feel free to chime in :wink:

Would this work on an Mac? Sorry if this has been answered previously

Was looking for this thread so thanks. Few Qs (I am a pleb when it comes to running nodes so kindly tolerate):

  1. I have a windows system that I also use for personal use (ie it’s not idle) and I have never run any VPS - should I even bother trying to run a node?
  2. How much will it cost to set up a VPS
  3. Is there a tutorial I can follow to set up?
  4. Are there any collective nodes where I can contribute to earn rewards (ie like how I can stake my ETH with Binance rather than run my own staking nodes)

Maybe this is more for Mods/Owners but will help to get clarity on all of this :slight_smile:

Thanks
