Full network name TEZOS_JAKARTANET_2022-04-27T15:00:00Z
Tezos docker build tezos/tezos:v13.0
Public RPC endpoint https://rpc.jakartanet.teztnets.xyz
Faucet Jakartanet faucet

Protocol at level 0 Psithaca2MLRFYargivpo7YvUr7wUDqyxrdhC5CQq78mRvimz6A
Protocol at level 8192 PtJakart2xVj7pYXJBXrqHgd82rdkLey5ZeeGwDgPp9rhQUbSqY

Jakartanet ran Ithaca for 2 cycles then switched to Jakarta at block 8192.

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 Jakartanet 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 $(opam env)
make
export PATH=$HOME/tezos/_build/install/default/bin/:$PATH

Join the Jakartanet network

Run the following commands:

tezos-node config init --network jakartanet

tezos-node run --rpc-addr 127.0.0.1:8732

💡 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 127.0.0.1:8732 > ./node-jakartanet.log &

Bake on the Jakartanet 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-013-PtJakart run with local node ~/.tezos-node faucet

You may run the accuser as well:

tezos-accuser-013-PtJakart run

💡 Again, to keep your processes alive in background:

nohup tezos-baker-013-PtJakart run with local node ~/.tezos-node faucet > ./baker-jakartanet.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.
