Run a Node

Tutorials about running a node for Conflux network.

📄️ Node Types

In the Conflux Network, there are different types of nodes that you can run, each serving different purposes and having different requirements. There are 3 types of nodes: Archive Node, Full Node and Light Node. The difference between three types of nodes lies in the amount of data reserved for storage. The Archive Node takes the most and the Light Node takes the least. Of course, more data consumes more hardware resources. In general, if you want to participate in mining, a fullnode will suffice . you need to run an archivenode if you want to use it as RPC service. The lightnode is mainly used as a wallet.
