We welcome bootstrap bakers for Limanet! The process is opt-in: please make yourself known in the baking slack, or make a Pull Request against the teztnets repo Limanet definition file.

For the first 8192 blocks, Limanet will run the Kathmandu protocol. Please start your Kathmandu bakers.

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 v15.1

Follow instructions from the Tezos documentation.

Alternative: Use docker

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

docker run -it --entrypoint=/bin/sh tezos/tezos:v15.1

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 v15.1
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 Limanet network

Run the following commands:

tezos-node config init --network limanet

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-limanet.log &

Bake on the Limanet 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-PtLimaPt run with local node ~/.tezos-node mykey --liquidity-baking-toggle-vote pass

You may run the accuser as well:

tezos-accuser-PtLimaPt run

💡 Again, to keep your processes alive in background:

nohup tezos-baker-PtLimaPt run with local node ~/.tezos-node mykey --liquidity-baking-toggle-vote pass > ./baker-limanet.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.
