📄️ Set up validator node
The Vega node is the implementation of the Vega protocol. It secures the network using VEGA, the network's governance and staking token, and relies on a BFT consensus engine now known as CometBFT, formerly Tendermint.
📄️ Set up non validator node
The main reason to run a non validator node is to support a data node. We strongly discourage you from running a data node with a validator node.
📄️ Set up a data node
Before you set up a data node, you'll need to have a non-validator node and confirmed it's running correctly.
📄️ Set up a block explorer
A Vega block explorer is a powerful tool for navigating and understanding the blockchain. It is an essential component for anyone looking to interact with a blockchain network, especially if you want to explore transaction history, monitor network activity, or verify the integrity of the blockchain's data.
