Install the software
⚠️ If you already have an existing Tezos installation, do not forget to backup and delete your
Download and install Tezos version v19.1
Follow instructions from the Tezos documentation.
Alternative: Use docker
To join Ghostnet with docker, open a shell in the container:
docker run -it --entrypoint=/bin/sh tezos/tezos:v19.1
Alternative: Build the software
⚠️ If this is your first time installing Tezos, you may need to install a few dependencies.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tezos/tezos.git
git checkout v19.1
opam init # if this is your first time using OPAM
eval $(opam env)
Join the Ghostnet network
Run the following commands:
octez-node config init --network ghostnet
octez-node run --rpc-addr 127.0.0.1:8732
Bake on the Ghostnet network
To improve reliability of the chain, you can take part in the consensus by becoming a baker. In that case, you will need some test tokens from the faucet.
If you are not a bootstrap baker, you need to register your key as a delegate using your alias or
pkh. For instance:
octez-client register key mykey as delegate
You may now launch the baker process.
octez-baker-Proxford run with local node ~/.tezos-node mykey --liquidity-baking-toggle-vote pass
You may run the accuser as well:
Note that you need a minimum amount of tez to get baking rights. If you are not a bootstrap baker, it will take you several cycles to start baking.
💡 Now that you are baking, you are responsible for the network health. Please ensure that the baking processes will keep running in the background. You may want to use screen, tmux, nohup or systemd. Also make sure that the baking processes will restart when your machine restarts.
