NODE TIERS

Incentivized Distributed
Enterprise Hardware

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

CUMULUS

10,000 FLUX

Hardware Requirements

2 vCore
4 GB RAM
50 GB HDD/SSD
2.5 TB Bandwidth

VPS and ARM64 compatible

Deterministic Block Reward

7,5%

NIMBUS

25,000 FLUX

Hardware Requirements

4 vCore
8 GB RAM
150 GB SSD
4 TB Bandwidth

VPS and ARM64 compatible

Deterministic Block Reward

12,5%

STRATUS

100,000 FLUX

Hardware Requirements

8 vCore
32 GB RAM
600 GB SSD
6 TB Bandwidth

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.

What will be the specifications needed for the Flux nodes after the collateral halving in 2022?

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.

1. Cumulus -> March 1st to March 22th, between this dates both old and new collaterals are valid to run a Cumulus, after 22th only the new collateral and requirements.

2. Nimbus -> March 15th to April 5th, between this dates both old and new collaterals are valid to run a Nimbus, after 5th only the new collateral and requirements.

3. Stratus -> April 1st to 30th April, between this dates both old and new collaterals are valid to run a Stratus, after 30th only the new collateral and requirements.

4. Blocks numbers will be announced closer to March 1st.

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.

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.

Preparing to Run a ZelNode

If you prefer the written word over video then we also have a step by step guide available: FluxNode setup guide.

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

Docker Installation

1) Log in root account

2) Type " bash -i <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RunOnFlux/fluxnode-multitool/master/multitoolbox.sh) "

3) Select option "Install Docker" ( just hit "1")

4) Put your user name

5) Reboot or Switch to user accont

Node Installation
