Unlike other blockchains, a full node IoTeX can be install into lowenergy devices (raspberry). Now its database is 1.6 GB large

This guide help you to deploy a testnet node


The iotex-core is packaged into a docker image. So you must have docker into your 64bit system.

I create a github repository to deploy a full node quickly.

Below a sequence of commands:
  1. repository download
    • git
      • git clone
    • zip
  2. copy the file config.template.yml into config.yml

  4. execute start command
    • docker-compose up -d
Use follow command to show the application log

docker logs iotext_iotex-core_1

In addition to iotex-core software i put another official software: iotex-explorer
