2 min readAug 6, 2020

With this guide you’ll be able to launch a Fantom read-only validator in 2 minutes! A script will take care of all the configuration for you.

You will need to execute 3 steps:

  1. Connect to your VPS (We tested it on an EC2 AWS Instance running on Ubuntu 18)

2. Login in Super User mode with the command below:

sudo su

3. Launch the node configuration script:

curl -s | bash

You should now be able to see your read-only node synchronizing with the Opera network. You’ll have something like this :
