Getting Started

Humanode Launcher

To facilitate the process of becoming a Humanode for our community, we've been working hard on an application that will help with installing and configuring the blockchain node.
Install the app on your desktop (or laptop), and then install the node with it either locally - on the same system where the desktop app itself runs, or remotely - on an Ubuntu system via SSH. The remote system can be headless - i.e. a usual Cloud VM or VPS will work fine.
You don't have to keep the desktop app open, when you close the app the node continues to run in the background.
Follow this guide to learn the details on how to set up and use the desktop app and how to become a Humanode!
