Minima | Testnet (EN)

Let's Node!

⠀Minima is an ultra-lightweight, fully decentralized blockchain that can run on a smartphone or IoT device without any difficulties.


Information about the project

To the content


⠀Minima is:

  • A cooperative distributed PoW network without miners, immune to the attributes of a centralized, miner-centric paid system.
  • Fully decentralized cryptosystem of collaborating users, without any centralized points of failure, capable of supporting the largest network of full nodes that have ever been assembled;
  • Compact blockchain capable of running on a smartphone.
  • Stable, open, global and censorship resistant P2P network with an embedded base-level blockchain for secure payments, token processing and contracts.
  • Scalable, programmable, without any storage required, quantum-safe, evidence-based, Tx-PoW cascading chain.


⠀At this stage, the following phases are known:

  • July 28 2021 — launching incentivized testnet;
  • 3Q 2022 — mainnet launching.


⠀Every day for the work of the node is charged 1 Minima coin. After the end of the testnet, coins will transfer to the mainnet at a ratio of 1:1. Additional rewards can be obtained for bugs searching.

Device Requirements

⠀Remove previous verison (if exists)

wget -O minima_cleanup_v98.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minima-global/Minima/master/scripts/minima_cleanup_v98.sh && chmod +x minima_cleanup_v98.sh && sudo ./minima_cleanup_v98.sh

⠀Install node

wget -O minima_setup.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/minima-global/Minima/master/scripts/minima_setup.sh && chmod +x minima_setup.sh && sudo ./minima_setup.sh -r 9002 -p 9001

Ignoring this error

⠀Install extra packages

apt install curl jq -y


For lovers of beauty

⠀Install Docker

. <(wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SecorD0/utils/main/installers/docker.sh)

⠀Create a container with a node

docker run -dit --restart on-failure --name minima_node -p 9001:9001 -p 9002:9002 secord/minima

⠀Add commands to the system as aliases:

  • To view the log of the node;
  • To view the information about the node.
. <(wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SecorD0/utils/main/miscellaneous/insert_variable.sh) -n minima_log -v "sudo journalctl -fn 100 -u minima" -a
. <(wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SecorD0/utils/main/miscellaneous/insert_variable.sh) -n minima_node_info -v ". <(wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SecorD0/Minima/main/node_info.sh) 2> /dev/null" -a

⠀Wait for the node launching



For thrill seekers
