Beta Rewards Network Launch Wed 12GMT — Here's what you need to do!

Ok, so a little home work for you intrepid Betaneers who will be running nodes and riding the Rewards Waves.

If you have been running nodes in test nets here’s what you need to do to prepare and reset, ready for the Beta to begin.

You’ll need to reset your tools, ready to get on the new Network, and get your Discord Username locked and loaded if you plan to participate in the Beta Rewards Program that is.

Here’s how to do that:

If you are a Node Launchpad user

  1. Go and grab the latest Node Launchpad (v0.3.7)
  2. Run it. You can follow these instructions you need to
  3. Press [Ctrl+R]
  4. Type the word reset and Press Enter
  5. Double check your Discord Username is correct in the top right or add it by using [Ctrl+B] if you haven’t already

And you are set to go!

If you are a Node Manager (CLI) user

  1. Run safenode-manager reset
  2. Press ‘y’ to reset the nodes

And remember when the time comes, set the owner flag when adding nodes. i.e:

safenode-manager add --owner <discord_username>

This should be passed in everytime.

Want to check your Discord Username

Go to the Autonomi Discord and use the handy bot command /get-id

only know for linux, but looks like node-launchpad config file changed in update, I just deleted its directory and it’s fine now.

./local/share/safe/launchpad/*

Does Launchpad 0.3.6 work also, or only 0.3.4 is supported?

thanks but i have no clue where to find it on mac

Where is the BOT? Please.

:frowning:

thisisnotbetarewardsnet@autonomi:~$ tar -xzf node-launchpad-0.3.4-x86_64-unknown-linux-musl.tar.gz 
thisisnotbetarewardsnet@autonomi:~$ ./node-launchpad
node-launchpad failed:
Error: 
   0: Failed to parse app data

I’m getting this error message on Windows 11 when I try to open launchpad. Anyone know what this means?

On an Ubuntu VPS, the setup was SOOO much better than the last testnet. The UX is greatly improved - great progress, and I’m sure feedback from Wave 1 will make it even easier for Wave 2 participants.

Fantastic work team!

Bring on Beta with rewards :clinking_glasses:

Is something like this perhaps enough?

$ rm -r .local/share/safe/launchpad
$ rm .config/systemd/user/safenode* .config/systemd/user/default.target.wants/safenode*

And then start with updated Launchpad anew?
