Users can utilize our platform for multiple purposes. Our platform will enable you to run your own node in blockchain of their choice in multi-cloud and multi-region supported environment. Currently Run Your Node only supports Mina protocol, helping Mina community members participate in Mina’s testnet. Please be careful to use our service for only designated purposes, your nodes can be shut down for attempting any other actions than node operation. Please read our terms of service for more information.
Users are charged based on the type of protocol, network, node and cloud settings. Detailed information about pricing options will differ, you will be informed about the pricing options at the beginning of the blockchain selection.

Users will be able to deploy maximum of 2 nodes at the moment. One node is for producing blocks and the other one is for operating a snarker node. Option for deploying two nodes will be selected as a default, you will receive two nodes if you select block producer & snarker option in the selection phase. Once you deploy 2 nodes, you will not be able to deploy more nodes further.
Our platform is based on cloud service from respected cloud infrastructure providers. Currently you can deploy your nodes on Naver CLOUD (based in South Korea) and Digital Ocean. You will be able to deploy their nodes on AWS and Google Cloud Platform at the launch of the official version of Run Your Node service.
We recommend you to deploy their nodes in closest region to your current location. For example if your residence is located in Asia, we recommend you to deploy your node in South Korean region. Or if you are accessing the service from Europe, we recommend you to choose Germany as your region. We will support more regions from all around the world to enable users have more options of their preference.

Second, you can access to node status page by clicking the nodes on the list. Once you access the details page, you will get informed about the key statistics of your node: system usage, network stats, key blockchain stats and errors. Last, you can click detailed node status to check all the information about current node operation and blockchain network. Our block producer & snarker performance dashboard will be provided to all Mina testnet participants.
You will be able to access their console by clicking the console button at the main page of dashboard. You can find the console button at the right of the node list.
