Test Chain for the Kathmandu Protocol Proposal
|Public RPC endpoint||https://rpc.kathmandunet.teztnets.xyz|
|Full network name||
|Tezos docker build||tezos/tezos:v14.1|
|Protocol at level 0||
|Protocol at level 8192||
For the first 8192 blocks, Kathmandunet will run the Jakarta protocol. Please start your Jakarta bakers.
Install the software
⚠️ If you already have an existing Tezos installation, do not forget to backup and delete your
Download and install Tezos version v14.1
Follow instructions from the Tezos documentation.
Alternative: Use docker
To join Kathmandunet with docker, open a shell in the container:
docker run -it --entrypoint=/bin/sh tezos/tezos:v14.1
Alternative: Build the software
⚠️ If this is your first time installing Tezos, you may need to install a few dependencies.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tezos/tezos.git cd tezos git checkout v14.1 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 Kathmandunet network
Run the following commands:
tezos-node config init --network kathmandunet tezos-node run --rpc-addr 127.0.0.1:8732
💡 A simple way to keep your process alive is to use
nohupto 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-kathmandunet.log &
Bake on the Kathmandunet 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 mykey as delegate
You may now launch the baker process.
tezos-baker-014-PtKathma run with local node ~/.tezos-node mykey --liquidity-baking-toggle-vote pass
You may run the accuser as well:
💡 Again, to keep your processes alive in background:
nohup tezos-baker-014-PtKathma run with local node ~/.tezos-node mykey --liquidity-baking-toggle-vote pass > ./baker-kathmandunet.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.
