What's the pricing to run a Checker node?


  1. What does NaaS mean in terms of node delegation?

→ NaaS stands for Node-as-a-Service. Typically, running a digital node requires specific hardware, reliable internet connectivity, and technical knowledge (Windows or Linux). With NaaS, particularly with NodeOps, you can outsource all these technical requirements. NodeOps handles hardware, node installation, and updates, and ensures 100% uptime. With just a few clicks, your node will be up and running without any technical expertise needed.

  1. Does NodeOps take some of my AETHIR rewards (i.e., vATH or ATH tokens)?

→ No, NodeOps does not take any of your rewards. You only need to pay a fixed fee for node operation or subscription. All rewards from node operations are entirely managed by you.

  1. Can I ensure 100% uptime using NodeOps as a NaaS provider?

→ Absolutely. With several years of experience in blockchain and node management, NodeOps maintains over 18,000 nodes. We offer dedicated customer support and high-spec hardware to ensure smooth node operations and 100% uptime.

  1. Why should I choose NodeOps? What other benefits do node operators get?

→ By running your node with NodeOps, you earn $NODE Points ($1 = 1 NODE), which can be redeemed later. You also gain exclusive access to future whitelist and airdrop opportunities from our partner projects.

  1. I am a complete novice and unsure how to set up my node.

→ We provide comprehensive tutorials in text and video formats to help you set up your node without issues. Additionally, our support team is available via email and our ticketing system. We also offer 1-on-1 meetings with node operators if needed.

  1. I participated in the testnet using NodeOps. Does this bring any advantage?

→ Yes, testnet participants using NodeOps will receive a free 1-month extension of their subscription + NODE Points Already dropped to users

→ Yes, you can. Sign in with the same email, connect all your wallets, and subscribe using the same email. You'll have a unified Dashboard (NodeFolio) to manage all your nodes.

  1. If I purchase additional Checker Nodes, do I need to subscribe again?

→ If you have purchased additional checker node licenses via the same wallet, you do not need to purchase additional subscriptions, if it is a different wallet, you would have to subscribe through the new wallet.
