This section of Findora docs will help you build a validator node.
Welcome to the validator section of our documentation. This section will walk you through the process of installing and running a validator on Findora. If you have questions or need assistance, join the Findora community on Telegram or Discord and request for access to the Validator Support channels.
First, review the System Requirements page to understand what type of hardware and software is required to run a validator node on Findora. You will need this information as you proceed further.
Next, you must acquire a server. We suggest using a server hosting provider such as Contabo, Digital Ocean, or AWS. In the Aquire a Server section, we use Contabo as an example of how to rent a virtual server for your validator.
Finally, you may choose one of two paths for setting up a validator:
Manual Setup - This method walks you through the process, step-by-step.
Toolbox Setup (Recommended) - This method uses a toolbox to do much of the heavy lifting for you. The toolbox provides you with a set of tools for managing and troubleshooting your validator.
You can install the toolbox separately after following the steps in Manual Setup.
