Avalanche Node Setup Guide

Hey Community!

We want to provide a decentralized space that can be used by everyone including other blockchains to create a more censorship-resistant decentralized future. Avalanche is a wonderful blockchain project and it seems a guide might be needed to help everyone get started deploying nodes on Akash.

So, with the simple goal of helping another blockchain, we wanted to approach the community for support. We thought the best way to teach others how to do this is by the community showcasing their knowledge of the process!

Hi, im interested on working on this guide, but im confused about what would be deployed on akash, avalanche provider? or something else and im totally wrong?

This would be for a blockchain validator node.

It is interesting! Friend, but give me at least some initial data for launching your node? where can i find them?

My best suggestion would be to check these docs out Run an Avalanche Node - Avalanche

Did anyone made any submission? I’m new to Akash wanted to use it for my Validator. Is there any getting start video to understand the process involved.

We are extending the deadline to the weekend! The new date is updated in the OP.

This is still happening. As soon as we close the competition we will post the winning guide.

@mando222 Can I post it in parts? Because it is a bit long.

Hi Guys, we are doing really nice Guide. I hope the 4th of September is still inculded in time box =)
