Installing the Node

The node installation could be done as easily as running 3 commands as shown below. The script currently supports Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

Usage Instructions

1. Clone the repository to the home folder and run it

$ cd && git clone https://github.com/ethernity-cloud/mvp-pox-node.git
$ cd mvp-pox-node && sudo ./etny-node-installer.sh

2. Run the script again after system restart (if restart is required)

$ cd mvp-pox-node && sudo ./etny-node-installer.sh

3. Upon executing the script, you will be presented with a prompt to select the network. The interface will look something like this:

  • If you want the node to run automatically on a network where it has gas (Priority: Polygon Mainnet, bloxberg Mainnet), type 1 and press Enter.
  • If you want to connect to the Polygon Mainnet (ECLD), type 2 and press Enter.
  • If you want to connect to the Polygon Testnet (tECLD), type 3 and press Enter.
  • If you want to connect to the bloxberg Mainnet (ETNY), type 4 and press Enter.
  • If you want to connect to the bloxberg Testnet (tETNY), type 5 and press Enter.
  • If you want to exit the script, type 6 and press Enter.
4. During the installation process, the installer script may prompt you with the message:
A. "Would you like to stop the service? (Y/n)". Y
B. "Do you want to use the default value of 3 ETNY / hour? (Y/n)", you can choose one of the following options (we recommended the default option):
  • If you want to use the default value of 3 ETNY / hour, simply type "Y" and press Enter.
  • If you want to specify a different value, type "n" and press Enter. The installer script will prompt you to enter a value between 1 and 10 for the ETNY / hour.
