Setup your own Node

What can I do, what should I not do?

You have different options to start your own Masternode in the DefiChain Network.
You can find a detailed Comparison in the Defichain Wiki in english and german.
I only support Option 3, held your Collateral in your own Wallet at home and start a VPS in a datacenter for Staking and to stabilize the network.
When you want to host your Node at home, do it by yourself :-)

Recommended Hardware Requirements

  • 4-8 vCPUs
  • 8 - 16 GB RAM
  • 200 GB SSD Storage
  • Redundant Internet Connection

My personal favorite is the VPS 2000 G10 from Netcup.

We prefer Debian 12 (64 Bit) Minimal with restricted root-user Access or Ubuntu 22.04.

For detailed Installation instructions, visit the Guide in the wiki: English or German Version.
