dVPN node setup
If you want to contribute to the Sentinel network and share your bandwidth you can set up a dVPN node that utilizes the Sentinel protocol. Every node owner can set their own price for customers using their bandwidth. Of course it’s up to the user to decide which node they will use as their dVPN.
In order to setup a dVPN node some basic Linux experience will come in handy, however the process it pretty easy to follow and unlike validators dVPN node owners do not have a global impact on the blockchain. Therefore if something goes wrong it doesn’t effect others and you can start over again. You we recommend to have at least 100 DVPN in your node account. This is needed, as a tiny amount is used to make a transaction to the blockchain letting it know your node is still online. There are 3 ways to get started with setting up a dVPN node:
- 1.dVPN launcher
- 2.Cloudmos on Akash
- 3.Doing it manually (for experienced users only)
The dVPN launcher will make setting up a dVPN node a lot easier compared to doing it manually.
