Node registration will open on February 28th at 2:00pm PT (22:00 UTC). An additional one thousand nodes will be able to register. Rewards will increase to 1,500 TNT per reward period.

A Simpler Registration Process

The new registration process allows node operators to upgrade before registration opens.

  1. Upgrade Node — Node operators should upgrade to version 1.3.6 as soon as possible. The release is out now.
  2. Restart Node — When registration opens, type ‘make restart’. Chainpoint Nodes automatically attempt to register when restarted or upgraded.

The command ‘make upgrade’ will upgrade and restart a Chainpoint Node.

IMPORTANT: Nodes must upgrade to 1.3.6 to be eligible for rewards.

Chainpoint Node 1.3.6 New Features

Nodes will now submit one hash to Core every five seconds. The time to retrieve a calendar proof may increase by up to four seconds. This change is being made in preparation for additional changes to Core.

Upon install, a Chainpoint Node will automatically create a 2GB swap file. If a swap file already exists, none will be added.

Tierion’s Discord Community is live! With over 4,000 members in Tierion’s Telegram channels, it can be difficult to follow the conversation. Discord makes it easier to segment discussions into multiple topics.

Chainpoint API Tutorial

Our team created a guide that shows how to use a Chainpoint Node’s API to create a Chainpoint proof. Each Chainpoint Node has an HTTP API. You can interact with Nodes using any programming language that supports HTTP calls.

Chainpoint Client (beta)

The Chainpoint Client makes it easy to create software that uses 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 client.
