# SBP Node

This document mainly introduces how to config supernode and SBP registration. Before reading this article, please see Node - Installation to install gvite first.

# SBP Configuration

In order to set up a supernode, first you need install a full node and then enable mining related properties.

# Create Wallet

# Edit node_config.json

Append 4 properties in node_config.json

  • Set Miner as true
  • Set CoinBase in format of index:address. For example: 0:vite_f1c2d944b1e5b8cbfcd5f90f94a0e877beafeced1f331d9acf.
  • Set EntropyStorePath as your mining address. For example: vite_f1c2d944b1e5b8cbfcd5f90f94a0e877beafeced1f331d9acf.
  • Set EntropyStorePassword as your keystore password corresponding to above address.

Below is a complete example

Copy { "Identity": "vite-node", "NetID": 1, "ListenInterface": "", "Port": 8483, "FilePort": 8484, "MaxPeers": 10, "MinPeers": 5, "MaxInboundRatio": 2, "MaxPendingPeers": 5, "BootSeeds": [ "https://bootnodes.vite.net/bootmainnet.json" ], "Discover": true, "RPCEnabled": true, "HttpHost": "", "HttpPort": 48132, "WSEnabled": false, "WSHost": "", "WSPort": 41420, "HttpVirtualHosts": [], "IPCEnabled": true, "PublicModules": [ "ledger", "public_onroad", "net", "contract", "pledge", "register", "vote", "mintage", "consensusGroup", "tx", "debug", "sbpstats", "dashboard" ], "Miner": true, "CoinBase": "0:vite_d2fef1e5ffa7d9139bd7c80a672e0530789bac6c7c9ff58dc6", "EntropyStorePath": "vite_d2fef1e5ffa7d9139bd7c80a672e0530789bac6c7c9ff58dc6", "EntropyStorePassword": "123456", "LogLevel": "info" }

# Reboot Node

Execute the following command

Copy ps -ef|grep gvite

to obtain existing gvite process id

Copy ubuntu 27268 1 99 16:00 ? 01:54:56 ./gvite -pprof

Kill it

Copy kill -9 27268

Then reboot

Copy ./bootstrap


Copy ps -ef|grep gvite

to check if gvite is rebooted successfully

# SBP Registration

Registering new SBP requires staking 1,000,000 VITE. Please ensure you have the amount in your account.

Log in Vite Web Wallet (opens new window) and navigate to SBP Registration page.

Fill in Node Name and Block Creation Address.

Please note that Block Creation Address is the address you configured on node server and is only responsible for producing new blocks. Do NOT use your Staking Address as Block Creation Address.

# SBP Name

Give your SBP a nice name. Bad name will not help recognition or attracting votes. SBP name cannot be changed once registration is done.

# SBP Ranking List
