description: Setting up your validator node has never been so easy. Get your validator running in minutes by following step by step instructions.

Installation

dYdX Protocol
dYdX Protocol

Network name: dYdX Protocol | Chain ID: dydx-mainnet-1 | Latest version: protocol/v4.1.0 | Custom Port: 238

Setup validator name

Replace YOUR_MONIKER_GOES_HERE with your validator name

MONIKER="YOUR_MONIKER_GOES_HERE"

Install dependencies

Update system and install build tools

sudo apt -q update
sudo apt -qy install curl git jq lz4 build-essential
sudo apt -qy upgrade

Install Go

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/go
curl -Ls https://go.dev/dl/go1.19.8.linux-amd64.tar.gz | sudo tar -xzf - -C /usr/local
eval $(echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin' | sudo tee /etc/profile.d/golang.sh)
eval $(echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/go/bin' | tee -a $HOME/.profile)

Download and build binaries

# Clone project repository
cd $HOME
rm -rf dydx
git clone https://github.com/dydxprotocol/v4-chain/ dydx
cd dydx
git checkout protocol/v4.1.0

# Build binaries
make install

# Prepare binaries for Cosmovisor
mkdir -p $HOME/.dydxprotocol/cosmovisor/genesis/bin
mv ~/go/bin/dydxprotocold $HOME/.dydxprotocol/cosmovisor/genesis/bin/
rm -rf build

Install Cosmovisor and create a service

# Download and install Cosmovisor
go install cosmossdk.io/tools/cosmovisor/cmd/cosmovisor@v1.4.0
