Warden Protocol nodes

A Warden Protocol node is a server running the software (binary) of the Warden Protocol.

  • Providing services: RPC, GRPC, API, etc.
  • Becoming a validator

This section explains how to run a node and become a validator.

If you're building an Omnichain Application and wish to run a node locally for testing purposes, check this guide: Run a local chain.
