2 vCPU + 4 GB Memory + 25 GB Storage 

Launching a Type-1 (validator) node

Log into your server with root account and run the following command: 

export NODE_URL= NETWORK=test NODE_TYPE=type1 KEYSTOREFILE='{“version”:3,”id”:”bbcfab…aaf3ee”,”address”:”f455d4…ebf819″,”crypto”:{“ciphertext”:”25121c…376013″,”cipherparams”:{“iv”:”75b9d3…0fz3a6″},”cipher”:”aes-128-ctr”,”kdf”:”scrypt”,”kdfparams”:{“dklen”:32,”salt”:”2049cb…bddf22″,”n”:131072,”r”:8,”p”:1},”mac”:”b01c1e…fce3d2″}}’ KEYSTOREFILE_PASSWORD=’Unova123′ && source <(curl -s

NODE_URL – IP of your instance preceded by http://
EMAIL – your email address
NETWORK – the network you want to onboard your node on (test/main)
NODE_TYPE – type1 (stands for validator node)
KEYSTOREFILE – content of your keystore file
KEYSTOREFILE_PASSWORD – password of your keystore file
