Grin mainnet seeds needed


#1

Hi all,

For all testnets we’ve been fine with a few informal seeds setup by developers and just *.seed.grin-tech.org but mainnet should be held to a (much) higher standard. So on behalf of the team I’d like to request:

  1. A few additional DNS names, with the following requirements:
    • Commit to own the domain for at least 2 years, let us know if an issue arises ASAP.
    • Know how to setup A records.
    • Be available under a contact email address to add/remove records within 48h (preferably).
  2. Multiple additional Grin seeds with the following requirements:
    • Commit to maintain and upgrade Grin regularly for the next year at least.
    • Let us know ASAP if you plan to stop or can’t upgrade regularly anymore.
    • Run on decent hardware (anything with 2 vCPUs and 4GB or more is fine) with decent bandwidth (>2 Mbps should be enough) and publicly available P2P ports.
    • Know enough Grin configuration to change the max peers limit to 250.
    • Know enough to set it up so it auto-restarts on crash (belt and suspenders never hurt).

Thanks in advance for you help!

I’ve been running testnet for a while now on my dedicated machine. I’d like to help. Both requirements are not a problem for me.

My 2 cens:

"mainnet.seed.grin.icu", // gary.peverell@protonmail.com
"floonet.seed.grin.icu", // gary.peverell@protonmail.com

  1. Are we talking about dynamic DNS seeders here? Either way, I can provide a DNS seeder at seed.grin.plutomonkey.com with dynamic or static records.
  2. Happy to do this. I have dedicated hardware with a fixed IP, with high bandwidth and availability. Keeping things updated and correctly configured shouldn’t be an issue.

#5
"floonet.grin-seed.prokapi.com", // @hendi / info@prokapi.com
"mainnet.grin-seed.prokapi.com", // @hendi / info@prokapi.com

I commit to always pointing these to the 3+ nodes powering grinexplorer.net, and I’ll update all of them on a rotating basis.


#6

floonet.grin-seed.norvegicum.com”, // grin@norvegicum.com
grin-seed.norvegicum.com”, // grin@norvegicum.com


#7

Happy to commit to 2 years:

“node-1.grin-node.online”
available at admin@grin-node.online


#8

@haarts IP address?
@gary thanks! that works
@hendi will you be adding the nodes reported by others as well?
@scottyd IP is 95.216.193.239, correct?
@jasondavies No seeder yet, @quentinlesceller started one here but it’s not finished yet. So static records for now.


#9

@igno.peverell 95.216.193.239 is correct!


#10

2 dedicated node for floonet:
106.12.219.131
106.12.117.21

These 2 is prepared for the mainnet:
106.12.208.167
106.13.10.40


#11

I would like to provide two DNS names, for mainnet and floonet:

"mainnet.seed.grin.that.world", // hi@that.world
"floonet.seed.grin.that.world", // hi@that.world

I run my own DNS authority server on this domain. I’ve been holding this domain for more than 2 years and I commit to continue to hold it for at least another 2.

I’m a Rust developer myself, and happy to see Grin about to launch its mainnet!


#12

Hello,
Is it possible to maintain a grin seed and still remain anonymous ? (if yes, how ?)
Is it for example possible to maintain a grin seed at an onion address ? Does this already exist ?

It’s my 1st post here, I profit to thank all developers for what seems to be quite a nice project.


#13

Is it too late to contribute?!

"floonet.grin-seed.wasm.xyz" @ 35.231.69.52 /// @pkrasam /// pkrasam@gmail.com
"mainnet.grin-seed.wasm.xyz" @ 104.196.22.82 /// @pkrasam /// pkrasam@gmail.com

I am so excited and looking forward to Grin in 2019.


#14

You might want to spell-check that:-)


#15

I’m in the process of creating a small deployment project for running a Grin node (this works but is rough around the edges: https://nest.pijul.com/haarts/grin-seed). What would be a dead simple why of checking the new node is accepting P2P connections? Some telnet command perhaps?

@igno.peverell IP addresses are forthcoming! Give me a couple of more days.

Sorry, late night typos :grin:

What I meant was e-x-c-i-t-e-d
