Joining Nimbus Testnet1

Edit on Github

Testnet1 is a cutting edge highly breakable in-flux testnet we use to test new features. If you do join, please take the time to report any bugs.

Joining Nimbus Testnet 1

Note: Works only on non-Windows right now. If on Windows, consider using our Vagrant box.

Before following the instructions below, please make sure you have Go installed. Follow official instructions and make sure it’s above version 1.12. This is required because we build the Libp2p Go daemon.

git clone https://github.com/status-im/nimbus
cd nimbus
git fetch
git checkout devel
make update deps
cd vendor/nim-beacon-chain
make clean-testnet1 testnet1
./scripts/testnet1.sh

Your node should be connecting to others now:
