Onboarding is open for Linux based AMD64/ARM devices via our Apt repository at: https://archive.edge.network
Our base recommendation is a device with the equivalent capacity of a Raspberry Pi 4, with a 64GB SD.
Devices inline with this will fall in to the Edge Compute #1 bracket in terms of power allocation (https://edge.network/en/pricing/).
Devices with higher performance/capacity will be captured in higher tier brackets.
The process has been designed to be as straight forward as possible.
The process is as follows:
- Install Docker (vs. 18.06+)
- Install Edge Cli (
- Connect your device to your my.edge.network account
- Provide your refundable proof of stake (the wallet address will be provided by a member of the team)
- Await enabling for production traffic in the network
Here’s the process for installing Cli:
Add the Edge repository to your sources
$ echo "deb https://archive.edge.network/ /" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/edge.list
Import the public key for the repository
$ wget -q -O - https://archive.edge.network/.gpg | sudo apt- -
$ sudo apt update
Install Edge Cli
$ sudo apt install edge-cli
Once done you will need to add you device your account at my.edge.network, which is done at the command line through Cli as follows:
Attach your device to your account
$ edge-cli login -u "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Register your device
$ edge-cli register
Start the node
$ edge-cli start
edge-cli start will return a message if your device hasn’t been funded.
Important! You only need to run
edge-cli start once. Edge will self-restart in future including on reboot.
And that’s it.
Note: devices will not be visible on your dashboard until they have been enabled for production on the network. Once your device has been set up a member of the team will be in touch for the funding of your device’s PoS and the enabling of the device on the network. This process will be fully automated post the initial onboarding testing period.
