Operating an Oracle Node
Learn how to contribute to the Equilibria Network
Operating an Oracle Node is straight forward. Simply follow the guide below and after that there is nothing else to do. At the end of the staking period of a node, you must re-stake your XEQ to put it back online.

Setting up your server

Let’s get started. Choosing where to set up a Service Node is the biggest choice you will make when running a Service Node. There are a number of things to consider. Because you will be locking up funds for 6 weeks at a time, you will want to ensure that your server has:
  • A stable, relatively fast connection to be able to respond to ping requests to avoid being booted off the network
  • At Least a 50GB SSD or Hard disk drive, this will be used to store the block-chain.
  • A stable power supply. If your server goes down during the staking period, you may get kicked off the network, and not receive rewards while your funds are still locked for the remainder of the staking period.
  • At least 3gb RAM
Typically, the easiest and cheapest way to host a server outside of your home is to use a Virtual Private Server (VPS). There are thousands of options when it comes to VPS providers, but for now, just about anyone will do. Harrison and I have been using Digital Ocean and Vultr for all of our server needs and we would recommend their services. You can use our affiliate links to help support the project!

Quick Start Script

Community contributor Greggy has created an easy to use node installation script.
First lets pull the script to your server:
$ git clone https://github.com/EquilibriaCC/Node-Quick-Start.git Equilibria
Go into newly created folder Equilibria
$ cd Equilibria
Now let's run the script
$ bash equilibria.sh install
After that is complete we can now start the node
$ bash equilibria.sh start

Here are some additional commands:

To check service status:
$ bash equilibria.sh status

To check how it is working:

$ bash equilibria.sh log

To generate staking transaction:

$ bash equilibria.sh prepare_sn
