Additional Registered Nodes

Node registration will open on January 24th at 2:00pm PT (22:00 UTC). An additional one thousand nodes will be able to register. Rewards will increase to 1,250 TNT per reward period.

The registration process is simple. Node operators should upgrade to version 1.3.5. Upgrading takes a few seconds. Nodes will automatically attempt to register when upgraded.

IMPORTANT: Version 1.3.5 of the Chainpoint Node software will be released moments before registration opens. Nodes must upgrade to be eligible for rewards.

Monthly Registrations

Our team is working on a substantial update to the Chainpoint software that allows Chainpoint nodes to join the network at any time. Until it is released, we’re moving to one registration event per month. Each event will be accompanied by an increase in the TNT per reward period.

Chainpoint Client (beta)

The Chainpoint Client makes it easy to create applications that use Chainpoint. This javascript client can be used in both Browser and Node.js based Javascript applications using callback functions, Promises (using .then.catch), or Promises (using async/await) functional styles.

We’ve created a live code notebook on Runkit that demonstrates how to use the Chainpoint client.

We encourage developers to test the client and submit any issues to the Chainpoint Client Github repo.

We’re Hiring

Tierion has several openings for experienced developers to join our team in San Francisco. Our toolchain is based on Node.js, CockroachDB, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, Redis, and Consul. Everything is glued together with Docker, Docker Compose, and Kubernetes. View full job description
