The NuLink Worker is the node to provide cryptographic service in the NuLink network. It provides Proxy Re-encryption service in the Horus network and it will provide more services such as ABE, IBE, ZKP and FHE in NuLink mainnet. The staker needs running a Worker node to be eligible for token reward.
There are four steps to run a NuLink Worker:
- 1.Create Worker Account
- 2.Install NuLink Worker
- 3.Configure and Run a Worker node
- 4.Bond the Worker node with your staking account
- Debian/Ubuntu (Recommended)
- 30GB available storage
- 4GB RAM
- x86 architecture
- Static IP address
- Exposed TCP port 9151, make sure it's not occupied
- Nodes can be run on cloud infrastructure.
Prepare an ETH type account for the Worker. We suggest creating a Worker account different from the staking account.
If you already know how to create one and access the keystore file, you can skip this step. Otherwise we recommend you to use Geth to create the Worker account. Please check here for details.
Start to download and install NuLink Worker. Install it using Docker (recommended) or install it with local installation. See here for more details.
Initialize the configuration and start the Worker Node. If install via docker, need to initialize the configuration and run it in Docker. Otherwise please check here for more details regarding local running.
Don't forget to bond it with your staking account to get reward after successfully running a NuLink Worker node using the NuLink Staking Dapp.
- Connect with the Staking account and make sure you have staked tokens in the staking pool
- Enter the Worker address and URI to bond
- Click “Bond Worker”
