Install the software

⚠️ If you already have an existing Tezos installation, do not forget to backup and delete your ~/.tezos-node and ~/.tezos-client.

Download and install Tezos version v11.0

Follow instructions from the Tezos documentation.

Alternative: Use docker

To join Hangzhounet with docker, open a shell in the container:

docker run -it --entrypoint=/bin/sh tezos/tezos:v11.0

Alternative: Build the software

⚠️ If this is your first time installing Tezos, you may need to install a few dependencies.

git clone git@gitlab.com:tezos/tezos.git
cd tezos
git checkout v11.0
opam init # if this is your first time using OPAM
make build-deps
eval $(opam env)
export PATH=$(pwd):$PATH

Join the Hangzhounet network

Run the following commands:

tezos-node config init --network hangzhounet

tezos-node run --rpc-addr

💡 A simple way to keep your process alive is to use screen or nohup to keep it running in the background while redirecting logs into files at the same time. For example:

nohup tezos-node run --rpc-addr > ./node-hangzhounet.log &

Bake on the Hangzhounet network

To improve reliability of the chain, you can take part in the consensus by becoming a baker. In that case, you will need some test tokens from the faucet.

If you are not a bootstrap baker, you need to register your key as a delegate using your alias or pkh. For instance:

./tezos-client register key faucet as delegate

You may now launch the baker process.

tezos-baker-011-PtHangz2 run with local node ~/.tezos-node faucet

You may run the accuser as well:

tezos-accuser-011-PtHangz2 run

💡 Again, to keep your processes alive in background:

nohup tezos-baker-011-PtHangz2 run with local node ~/.tezos-node faucet > ./baker-hangzhounet.log &

Note that you need a minimum amount of tez to get baking rights. If you are not a bootstrap baker, it will take you several cycles to start baking.
