Build Linux binary from source and become a Full Node Operator

Instruction to install the oraid binary in docker


Operating System

This tutorial assumes that your node is using Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04. It does not work with Ubuntu 16.04

Go version

The Golang version should be from 1.18 and above


If your node does not have Make, install using: apt update && apt install make


You need to install Gcc to build the binary. Type: apt update && apt install gcc

Build the binary from source

# clone the Oraichain network repository
git clone https://github.com/oraichain/orai.git
# enter the repo
cd orai
# checkout the latest tag
git checkout <tag>
The <version-tag> will need to be set to either a testnet or the latest mainnet version tag.
The current mainnet version tag will be v0.41.3 - i.e:
git checkout v0.41.3-statesync-script
Next, you should be able to build the binary file using the below command:
# in orai dir
go mod tidy
make install
To confirm that the installation has succeeded, you can run:
oraid version
The current binary version for Linux users is v0.41.3-statesync-script
Libwasmvm version: oraid query wasm libwasmvm-version, which should give: 1.2.4

Connecting to the network as a full-node operator

Statesync is the quickest way to let your node catch up with the network by starting at a specified trusted height and fetch snapshot data from other peers.
To use the statesync method, please run the following script:
After running the script, your node will be ready to run as a full node!
