Run a Node
VALIDATOR REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
We are excited that the Constellation Mainnet is launching soon! In this spirit we are looking for pioneers who want to participate in hosting Constellation nodes in order to lay the foundation of a strong global network.
The MainNet will launch with up to 100 foundation nodes. Applicants will be selected based on a set of criteria that best align with the trajectory of the Constellation Network. However, once proven to be stable, this number will increase and the scope of participants will widen.
Applicants will be selected based on a set of criteria that best align with the trajectory of the Constellation Network and global distribution.
Focus on Stability
Although the Constellation nodes are built to be lightweight, the initial operators will be running a full node in order to maintain stability across the node clusters. And as the network’s stability is battle-tested, lighter nodes will be able to join the network.
Node Operator’s Handbook
Within this document, you will find the essential information on running a node and the related governance aspects of the early network. This is the start of a living network that is built, evolved and supported by you.
This Handbook is meant to be understood in combination with the Constellation Constitution and the Code of Ethics that we will collaborate with you, our community. As founders of the Constellation Network we want to make sure that our values and principles live on in the governance of the network.
