Optional: Setup and run a Gnosis Chain (formerly xDai) Node
This process is optional and suggested for experienced node runners only.
While not mandatory (public RPC endpoint connection is possible), we encourage users to also run a Gnosis Chain L1 node to increase decentralization. You can run the GC client on the same machine where you run the Gnosis Beacon Chain client or choose a different setup.
Select either OpenEthereum or Nethermind as your client of choice. Follow these instructions to get started:
Once your node is setup, take note of the RPC endpoint - you will need it later in the setup. The default is typically http://x.x.x.x:8545 where x.x.x.x is your instance ip.
Additional client RPC endpoint info:
