Deploy a Node

There are three different classifications of Ontology nodes:

Triones node | Ontology MainNet

Triones nodes are bookkeeping nodes that participate in the network consensus, and must be voted in by user staking of ONT, after applying to be a consensus node. For more incentive and consensus related information, click here.

Synchronization node | Ontology MainNet / Polaris TestNet

Synchronization nodes do not participate in network consensus, and only synchronize the blocks generated by the Triones (bookkeeping) nodes.

Single node | Ontology Privatenet / Polaris TestNet

Ontology supports single node network deployment for development in a private testing environment.

Follow this link for a guide on how to deploy a node.
