When you have a node successfully installed, please fill out our node operator onboarding form so that you can acquire CHEQ testnet tokens required for staking on the network. You will need to have the following details on hand to fill out the form:
Node ID for your node
IP address / DNS record that points to the node (if you're using an IP address, a static IP is recommended)
Peer-to-peer (P2P) connection port (defaults to 26656)
Basic token functionality for holding and transferring tokens to other accounts on the same network
Creating, managing, and configuring accounts and keys on a cheqd node
Staking and participating in public-permissionless governance
Governance framework for public-permissionless self-sovereign identity networks
A non-exhaustive list of future planned functionality (not necessarily in order of priority) is highlighted below:
DID method specification
Creating and querying DIDDocs
Creating and managing Verifiable Credentials anchored to DIDs on cheqd testnet
We plan on adding new functionality rapidly and on a regular basis. We are also exploring mechanisms to showcase our product roadmap and gather feedback from our community members. We welcome feedback on our cheqd Community Slack workspace.
Building from source
cheqd-node is created with Starport. If you want to build a node from source or contribute to the code, please read our guide to building and testing.
