Test Net Instructions

To help with test net please join the signal group via this link https://signal.group/#CjQKICa9F2r95FQoGhYjc02lwNgKZCOfDEZngfoWgr_ZkHc4EhAOywghKv4DebEkPsicSCFb

If on Linux or mac:

follow instructions 1 -10 from link below:
git clone https://github.com/GlobalBoost/impactprotocol
cd impactprotocol
cargo build –release

If on Windows follow these steps:
Make sure wsl2 is running
wsl -l -v
sudo apt install –assume-yes git clang curl libssl-dev llvm libudev-dev make protobuf-compiler
sudo apt install build-essential
Apt-get update
sudo apt-get update
curl –proto ‘=https’ –tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh
source $HOME/.cargo/env
rustc –version
rustup default stable
rustup update
rustup update nightly
rustup target add wasm32-unknown-unknown –toolchain nightly
rustup show
rustup +nightly show
git clone https://github.com/GlobalBoost/impactprotocol
cd impactprotocol
Cargo build –release

This will take some time to build.

When it’s built then generate your mining key ->

./target/release/impact generate-mining-key –chain=impact-testnet

then import your key. Change the secret seed with the one you generated. Secret key in bold below

./target/release/impact import-mining-key “hawk avocado world check unusual unusual order velvet omit omit blush abuse” \
–base-path /tmp/impactnode \

Then put your public key you generated before in the command below as author

./target/release/impact \
–base-path /tmp/impactnode \
–chain=impact-testnet \
–port 30333 \
–ws-port 9945 \
–rpc-port 9933 \
–telemetry-url “wss://telemetry.polkadot.io/submit/ 0” \
–validator \
–author 0x8e167ad23f502d4e71140a256e16e0aa65e4ad6d3be90034d1add62b96e70152 \
–rpc-methods Unsafe \
–name ImpactNode \

Now you should begin to mine. You are running an Impact Protocol test net node!

Now you need to install an extension: https://polkadot.js.org/extension on Google Chrome or Firefox. Import account with pre-existing seed. Enter your public key and set a password.
