FAQ for ALICE V2
The installation process is currently tested on Linux. Installing a node on other operating systems may be possible but not officially supported yet.
No. It is not possible because a node run on a laptop/PC are likely to have much more downtime than one run on a server.
Although It is technically possible to run numerous nodes on ALICE, it is NOT beneficial and NOT recommended. No matter how many nodes you run on ALICE, you will not be able to run more than one node in the Canary Network. That is because in the Canary network, a mechanism will be applied to verify the uniqueness of each node's operator.
The date of node-drop distribution and the Pioneer launch have yet to be announced. There are five conditions for the ALICE node operators to get the full reward:
<server-ip>is actually the public IP of the server that you have used to connect to your server and installed the node on. It is shown in the details of your server's dashboard or in the email you received from the server provider.
The node address is the address that your node uses to sign requests with. It is automatically generated by the node and its private key is held in the config file of the node.
The staking address, on the other hand, is the address of the owner of the node which is used to stake tokens when adding the node to the network. It is generated by the owner's wallet (for example MetaMask), and its private key is held inside the wallet.
No. The node running rewards shown in the dashboard are just test tokens and have nothing to do with the node-drop incentive; that is, they carry no real value but help developers make sure the system is operating accordingly.
The following commands can be used to remove the Muon node's docker containers and images:
docker stop muon-node redis mongo
docker rm muon-node redis mongo
docker image prune
If you installed the node by cloning the
muon-node-jsrepository, you can also remove the folder by:
rm muon-node-js -rf
To do so, follow these steps:
- Use a
nano backup.jsoncommand to create a file named
backup.jsonon your server. This opens the file in the server terminal.
- Copy and paste the backup content that you saved when you backed up your node into the file.
- Save and close it by pressing ctrl + x and then press y to confirm saving the changes.
NB: Getting errors like "command not found" when entering
nano backup.envmeans that you do not have the nano installed. You can install nano on:
- Ubuntu/Debian using:
sudo apt-get -y install nano
- RedHat/CentOS/Fedora: using:
sudo yum install nano
To get the full node-drop (Minimum amount of bonded PION to run a node), there are five conditions
- Proof of uniqueness verification
- Joining the network before February 27th, 5 p.m. CET
- Having a valid IP address for the period between February 28th until April 28th
- Running the node for at least 60 days after February 27th
- Having 90% uptime since joining
This is how the rewards will be calculated:
First, the number of days on which each verified node has been up 90% of the time is calculated, that is , days on which the node has been up for more than twenty-one and a half hours.
After the 60th day of 90% uptime, the node operator starts to get 20% more reward for each 30 days, which is also calculated on a daily basis: one thirtieth of the 20% for each day.
So the reward plan, in short, is as follows:
- The reward for running a node before Feb 27th: 20% of the node-drop (Minimum amount of locked PION for running a tier 1 node)
- The reward for running a node for 60 days with 90% daily uptime after Feb 27th (until the launch of Pioneer): 80% of the node-drop
- The reward for running a node after 60 days with 90% daily uptime (until the launch of Pioneer): 20% more for each month (calculated per day)
This shows your uptime on the new network and does not include your uptime on the old ALICE network. However, you can see the rewards for running your node in the Bonded ALICE Power box, that is a reflection of your uptime on the old ALICE network.
The node-drop plan continues up until the launch of Pion. After joining ALICE V2, you can see your rewards from the old ALICE network in the Bonded ALICE Power box, and the rewards for V2 in the Reward box.
Try opening port 9011 and 8011 on your server firewall by running the following commands (one by one):
sudo ufw reset
sudo ufw allow 8011/tcp
sudo ufw allow 9011/tcp
It is 10,000 $ALICE. So if your node-drop is less than that or if you want to run a new node, refer to the dashboard and click on "Get Started with a New bonALICE" or use the BUY link at the top to purchase the amount you need.
Upgrading and withdrawing are not activated yet, but will soon be. Check our socials for updates.
This is not recommended at all. If you don't join ALICE V2, you will only be eligible for what you earned with your Alice node, that is, you will miss the further 20% monthly bonus. And you miss the chance of gaining practical experience of using the token (staking, creating NFTs, claiming and withdrawing rewards, etc).
If you haven't passed your uniqueness on ALICE, you cannot join the network by claiming the node-drop. To install a node on ALICE V2, you need to use the "Buy ALICE" button (top of V2 dashboard) to purchase ALICE using tBNB. Then use the "Get started with a new bonALICE" to add your node to the network. (ALICE is just a valueless test token and you just need to have some tBNB.)
Important: The last date for going through uniqueness verification is September 15. Only people who have passed UV up until that date will be eligible for the node-drop. This means if you have run an ALICE node and have all the requirements except uniqueness, you will not be eligible for the node-drop.
