nodeos is the core service daemon that runs on every Antelope node. It can be configured to process smart contracts, validate transactions, produce blocks containing valid transactions, and confirm blocks to record on the blockchain.

Why run a node

Running a local node will enable you to test transactions in a truly self-sufficient manner and remove third parties.

  • Local Development node for testing Antelope contracts.
  • Produce blocks for TLOS rewards.
  • Boost RPC callback performance and network security.
