These instructions assume you have installed HOPRd on your machine and you are able to access http://localhost:3000/.
To use HOPR, you’ll need two types of funds:
- the native token of the blockchain the HOPR token is linked to (for example: ETH)
- HOPR token
With this command, we will run hoprd and store logs.
When running this command the first time, it will create a folder
db in the current
working directory where it will store the encrypted key to your node and your off-chain
DEBUG=hopr* npx hoprd --admin --init --announce --identity .hopr-identity --password switzerland --forwardLogs
Accessing HOPRd on a VPS¶
ssh -L 3000:127.0.0.1:3000 root@`<VPS ip address>` # you'll then be prompted to enter your password
Then visit http://localhost:3000 on your browser.
