About Aleph.im

Aleph.im’s core mission is to help decentralized apps and protocols strip off the centralized parts of their stack, achieving a fully decentralized architecture. Our ecosystem achieves this by providing decentralized databases (including file storage), computation and a decentralized identification (DID) framework. You can think of aleph.im as a decentralized AWS or firebase.

Read this first!

  1. It is NOT possible to register your node from your NULS or NEO wallet. If you still have ALEPH tokens on these blockchains then you need to swap them first. Head over to swap.aleph.im
  2. You need a minimum of 200K ALEPH tokens to register a node.
  3. You can only register one node per account/wallet.
  4. If you want to register several nodes, you will need to split your ALEPH (ERC-20) holdings between different accounts and register the nodes from each respective account.
  5. Node and staking rewards will start on the 25th. You will not get more rewards if you start staking on the 18th. It just gives everyone equal chances to be there from the beginning.

  1. Connect your wallet
  2. Register your node
  3. Create your mulitaddress

  5. Stake as a node operator

1. Connect Your Wallet

Go to account.aleph.im and click on “Connect to a wallet” to connect to your Ethereum wallet.

Choose one of the relevant wallets.

2. Register Your Node

Once you finish step one described above, you will see the screen below with your wallet address and balance in the top right corner.

Click on “Create node” to start the registration process.

This pop-up will appear, enter a node name and click on “Continue”

On the following screen, it is asking you for a multiaddress. You will only be able to update this information once you have set up a node. You will have until the January 11th 2020 to complete this action. Until then, you can leave it empty and complete it later. Your node will be registered and stakers will be able to start staking, but rewards will not start until the 25th of December 2020 and you have the required 500K ALEPH staked.

This pop-up will appear, click on “Sign” to confirm.

You will then see the updated screen below. It will show a new list at the top containing the node you have registered with its status and further information.

Voilà!

3. Create your multiaddress

Now comes the part for setting up your physical node. There are two options to do this:

  1. Through our partner nodeforge.io. Follow the NodeForge instructions here.
    You can skip option 2 if you choose this option.
  2. Or set up your own node. Follow Aleph.im node setup instructions here!
    After this go back to account.aleph.im to pair your multiaddress on your node info page.

You only need to sign your message and your done!

Congratulations! You're done!

4. Setup another node

If you want to register several nodes, you will need to split your ALEPH (ERC-20) holdings between different accounts and register the nodes from each respective account.

5. Staking as a node operator

  1. Create a new account on your wallet
  2. Transfer the amount you want to stake to that account
