Get configuration files

WARNING

In this course we use the CARDANO TESTNET, so let's get the configuration files for it.

DO NOT USE MAINNET DURING THIS COURSE.

Starting the node and connecting it to the testnet requires 4 configuration files:

  • topology.json

  • BYRON genesis.json

  • SHELLEY genesis.json

  • config.json

In your home directory, create a new directory for the configuration files:

cd
mkdir relay
cd relay

Or with the command line using:

wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-config.json
wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-shelley-genesis.json
wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-byron-genesis.json
wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-topology.json
