You can run ithaca testnet by passing the argument --network ithacanet to tezos-node run.

⚠️ Tenderbake has no endorser. The endorser binary does not exist. This is normal. Running the baker daemon is enough.

⚠️ To bake with a Ledger device, you need the latest version of the app, 2.2.15.

Report bugs

You are encouraged to run the baker in debug mode:

export TEZOS_LOG="*baker* -> debug"

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 v13.0

Follow instructions from the Tezos documentation.

Alternative: Use docker

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

docker run -it --entrypoint=/bin/sh tezos/tezos:v13.0

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 v13.0
opam init # if this is your first time using OPAM
make build-deps
eval $(opam env)
export PATH=$HOME/tezos/_build/install/default/bin/:$PATH

Join the Ithacanet network

Run the following commands:

tezos-node config init --network ithacanet

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-ithacanet.log &

Bake on the Ithacanet 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-012-Psithaca run with local node ~/.tezos-node faucet

You may run the accuser as well:

tezos-accuser-012-Psithaca run

💡 Again, to keep your processes alive in background:

nohup tezos-baker-012-Psithaca run with local node ~/.tezos-node faucet > ./baker-ithacanet.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.
