OPEN: Node Deployment Accelerator (NDA)


Node Deployment Accelerator (NDA) is an innovative GitHub repository designed to simplify the deployment process for various blockchains. It streamlines the setup of blockchain nodes, empowering users to initiate their desired blockchain deployment effortlessly.


Node Deployment Accelerator (NDA) aim to revolutionize the deployment process for various blockchains such as Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Polygon (Matic), and others. This open-source solution streamlines the setup of blockchain nodes, empowering users with varying technical backgrounds to effortlessly initiate their desired blockchain deployment. By cloning the repository and navigating to the respective chain ticket, users can customize specific variables, configure firewall ports, and execute a single command docker-compose up -d. This streamlined process swiftly initializes the desired blockchain node while allowing users to dedicate their efforts to contributing to the Pocket Network’s growth and functionality, bypassing the complexities of node setup.

The simplicity of deploying chain nodes assumes pivotal importance in driving decentralization efforts within the Pocket Network ecosystem. As the network grapples with centralization concerns, enabling any user to deploy a chain node on personal hardware becomes imperative. Initiatives like GANDALF and the forthcoming Shannon, where each POKT node will be staked with a single chain, underscore the significance of simplified node deployment. This approach not only fosters broader participation but also ensures a more evenly distributed node network, bolstering decentralization within the ecosystem.

The NDA repository plays a vital role in democratizing access within the Pocket Network. By simplifying the configuration and launch of blockchain nodes, it bridges the gap for individuals seeking to engage with the network. As a go-to resource for node deployment information, it aims to attract individuals searching for such guidance online, potentially redirecting them towards Pocket Network. This redirection could serve as an entry point for future stakers or clients, nurturing a more inclusive and decentralized ecosystem. Facilitating easy engagement not only democratizes access but also fortifies the network’s resilience, paving the way for a more robust and distributed future.

Hey @Breezytm -

This one is open starting May 15. We’ll process a half month payment for May, and set you up on a hedgey stream after May’s impact report if we keep this grant open.

Please open a quick grant in Karma using the ETH wallet you’d like to be paid to. You’ll create a Milestone for May (what you plan to work on ) and then end of month an ‘Update’ to report on how much impact + success you’ve had. Here’s a write-up on how to use Karma.

Let me know if you have any questions!
