Hosting a Node

If you're interested in hosting a node, sign up and we will contact you. You can get started by following the Node Setup instructions if you have the required hardware.

Due to the chip supply shortage Raspberry Pi 4Bs 1GB, which we use to encrypt communications over the Yggdrasil network, are in short supply. Places to find them, when they are available, include Microcenter in Cambridge, MA and PiShop. You can find other sellers at the bottom of the Raspberry Pi 4B page.

We are looking at using old PCs as a fallback until Raspberry Pis are available. If you want to help with that effort, contact us.
