Run a Node on the
xx network

Resources for Node Operators

Joining the xx network MainNet requires two computers that meet the minimum required hardware specifications a cMix node computer and a cMix gateway computer.

The cMix node and gateway computers run the cMix software. Additionally, each cMix node computer acts as an xx network chain validator and each cMix gateway computer acts as an xx network chain node.

The Node Handbook details the procedure and instructions for configuring the OS, installing the required dependencies of the cMix and xx network chain software, and staking the node.

Staking requires a native xx network wallet for the stash and controller accounts to stake the node with the minimum stake (1,000 xx) through the xx network wallet.

Get Nominated
Get nominated, which helps maintain the status of an Active Node. Find nominators through the various xx community channels such as our Telegram and Discord channels and the xx network Forum.

Once your node and gateway are live, you can see how your node is doing on the cMix Dashboard.

Tarballs are designed for x86-64 linux distributions and contain everything needed to run xx chain, xx cMix, including CUDA support. Details of the deployment process can be found on the Node Handbook on the xx network wiki.
