We aim to provide the general AEON public a list of IP's to connect to. We scan the AEON network using our daemon and then get information from daemons we find to find even more nodes. Our list is updated on a daily basis.
Each machine that runs the AEON daemon software is considered a node. Public nodes, or open nodes, are nodes ran by unknown operators who allow you to use their node to broadcast your transaction. There are risks to using public nodes, such as IP+time logging, in which operators of the node can tell when your IP started a transaction. Due to the natural privacy of AEON, your destinations are unknown to that node!
There are many reasons for using a public node. You're new to the project and want a wallet address that is always sychronized to collect and see your sweet AEON's! Perhaps you are a merchant who does not have the resources currently allotted for accepting AEON, but you want to start accepting immediately. Whatever the case, there may be open nodes for use.
Each node may operate in different places and on different hardware. Performance, and reliabilty, of the node you use may not be optimal for your setup. As always, use your own node when you can!
|Status||Node IP Address||Time scanned||Reverse DNS|
To use with aeon-wallet-cli, use these commands
aeon-wallet-cli.exe --daemon-address ADDRESS.OF.HOST:11181
./aeon-wallet-cli --daemon-address ADDRESS.OF.HOST:11181
There are many pool operators, node operators and more in the AEON community. Some offer their nodes up for use!
If you would like to offer your node up for inclusion in the list of open public nodes: you can simply add the following code to the launch of your daemon (and open your firewall), and our script will sniff you out and add your node to the random list
--rpc-bind-ip 0.0.0.0 --rpc-bind-port 11181 --restricted-rpc --confirm-external-bind
