NODE TIERS

Incentivized Distributed
Enterprise Hardware

FluxNodes require high-uptime, enterprise-grade hardware to operate on and provide real, useful computing power to the network.

Operating a FluxNode is available to anyone with the required Flux collateral and hardware, creating a fully decentralized network both in organization and geography.

Bad-actor mitigation is done through collateral requirements as well as benchmarking and anti-cheat measures built into the system.

Flux-Node Structure

There are three tiers of FluxNodes with different levels of required collateral and hardware specifications, outlined below.

CUMULUS

1000 FLUX

Hardware Requirements

2 Cores
4 Threads
8 GB RAM
220 GB SSD/NVME
180 Mb/s DWS
240 EPS Min. Requirements

25 Mb down/up speed

VPS and ARM64 compatible

Deterministic Block Reward

7,5%

NIMBUS

12,500 FLUX

Hardware Requirements

4 Cores
8 Threads
32 GB RAM
440 GB SSD/NVME
180 Mb/s DWS
640 EPS Min. Requirements

50 Mb down/up speed

VPS and ARM64 compatible

Deterministic Block Reward

12,5%

STRATUS

40,000 FLUX

Hardware Requirements

8 Cores
16 Threads
64 GB RAM
880 GB SSD/NVME
400 Mb/s DWS
1520 EPS Min. Requirements

100 Mb down/up speed

VPS compatible

Deterministic Block Reward

30%

The above requirements are the minimum that a node provider must have to overcome the benchmarking system. If a node owner provides more resources than the above, the network will use all the resources that can be found on the specific server.

New Staking Node-Titan & Cirrus

New Nodes allow users to participate in the network growth. Estimate launch Q3-Q4 2022

Titan-Staking

50 FLUX minimum stake

Hardware Requirements

8 Cores
16 Threads
64 GB RAM
880 GB SSD/NVME
400 Mb/s DWS
1520 EPS Min. Requirements

100 Mb Bandwidth

VPS and ARM64 compatible

  • Titan Nodes will allow users to pool together resources to run Enterprise level hardware with exposure to new customer set.
  • Flux will never be held by 3rd parties, all lockups will be on chain with Infinity contracts.
  • The lockup will be 3, 6, 12 months lockup per node.
  • After lockup period, the node will expire and release all users funds to users with rewards.
  • Focus will be on entry level investors and targeted mid small to mid-tier business.
  • FluxOS will be the "Staking" portal.

Cirrus Node

5 FLUX (TBD)

Hardware Requirements

2 Cores
4 Threads
8 GB RAM
220 GB SSD/NVME
180 Mb/s DWS
280 EPS Min. Requirements

25 Mb Bandwidth

VPS and ARM64 compatible

  • Completely off chain. Test-Nodes
  • Not listed on Flux chain determinist node list.
  • Entry level to learn how decentralized networks work.
  • Rewards based on dApps installed and running.
  • Low 5 Flux collateral to reduce barrier of entry.
  • Reward based on the dApp spawned on the network.

How much is the ROI?

The rewards & ROI will depend heavily on the total VPS cost, FluxNode Tier, number of active nodes on the network and the price of Flux. 

The “FluxNodes dashboard” will help you make that decision on what is right for you.

The dashboard can be easily navigated and provides key information like the total enabled nodes, daily, monthly, yearly rewards, revenue, ROI and more.

FluxNodes Economics
REWARD STRUCTURE

Block reward distribution

The block reward is split 50% POW / 50% FluxNode operators, for each and every block. The rewards for FluxNode ownership are designed to be stable with a sustainable ROI.

Parallel Rewards

Cumulus

Node receives 7.5% of blockfind or 5.625 Flux

Nimbus

Node receives 12.5% of blockfind or 9.375 Flux

Stratus

Node receives 30% of blockfind or 22.5 Flux

POW

Miner receives 50% of blockfind or 37.5 Flux

FLUX NODE SETUP

Setting up your FluxNode

In order to run a FluxNode you need to meet certain required collateral and hardware specifications.

FluxNode Requirements

FluxNode Video Setup

Setting up a FluxNode is easy, you just need to be comfortable with working on the command line. There are multiple ways to setup a FluxNode and here we share the most used ones for beginers. Below are a series of video guides which walk you through the setup process bit by bit.

Multi-tool-box Installation Script

Our developers have built a multi tool box script for an easy installation of Fluxnodes. The multi tool box allows you to install, check or change parameters in nodes. But also the establishment of notifications on different platforms such as discord or telegram.

Multi-tool-box Info
