Hello Node Operator!

How to run your own Flow node

To run a node in the Flow network, the node must:

  • be registered with sufficient stake
  • be authorized by the service account

Before proceeding, ensure you have the stake required for your new node and that your node will be authorized by the service account (apply here).

To set up a new Flow node you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Provision the machine on which your node will run.

  2. Generate and register your node identity.

  3. Start your node!
