Bee Node Hardware Requirements and Performance Benchmarking Guide
Over the last several months the Bee dev team has been hard at work with the rollout of the storage incentives system which will ensure that node operators who share their disk space with the network will get rewarded. Along the way the dev team has been continually testing various aspects of the health of the network and monitoring community feedback in order to diagnose any issues. One issue which has come up is that of node performance. Some node operators may be missing out on earning storage incentives due to insufficient hardware performance. To address this issue, we’ve put together this guide for benchmarking node performance so node operators can make sure that their nodes are running optimally.
Build on Swarm: How to Run a Bee Node for Testing and Development
Running a Bee node is essential for building decentralised applications on the Swarm network. However, as a developer, it is often convenient to work in an environment where interactions with the node/network can be tested rapidly and without putting the node’s storage data or the user’s tokens at risk.
How to Publish a Website on Swarm Using the Swarm Desktop App: A Step-by-Step Guide
TL;DR: This guide will walk you through the process of publishing a website on Swarm using the Swarm Desktop App. You’ll learn how to install the app, fund your account, upload your website, and connect an ENS domain for a user-friendly experience. By following these steps, you’ll be able to host a censorship-resistant website on decentralised storage and make it easily accessible for users.
Run a light or full Bee node — A Devcon workshop by Attila Gazsó
In this informative workshop recorded during Devcon VI, Bee product lead Attila Gazsó takes the audience through the process of setting up light and full Bee node.
Swarm & Swarm testnet Package Available at the DAppStore
NOTE: This blog post is geared towards running a bee full node. If you are wanting ONLY TO ACCESS / UPLOAD unstoppable content from/to Swarm, checkout Swarm Desktop.
How to… Bridge DAI from Ethereum Mainnet to Gnosis Chain
This tutorial will explain how to bridge MakerDAO DAI from Ethereum Mainnet to Gnosis Chain, using the Gnosis Chain bridge.
Defining API Security in Web3 Applications
The Swarm Bee team is excited to announce that an initial version of the Restricted API feature is available and ready for experimentation!
Hacking with Swarm and Bee-js
The Swarm ecosystem is young, and there is always space for a lot of cool utilities, apps, and use cases. We support developing on Swarm with a set of libraries, CLIs, and utilities. I will demonstrate how to utilize some of these components with a small hacking session.
How to upload data to the Swarm network
Running the Swarm Desktop App (Beta) in light mode lets you upload files, folders or websites to the Swarm network. To do that you first need to buy postage stamps.
Swarm and xDAI: a match made in crypto
With the launch of its mainnet, Swarm has reached what is probably the most important milestone in its existence. The Ethereum mainnet, however, is very expensive for the sort of transactions Swarm Bee generates. So Swarm has opted to use xDAI as a scaling solution.
Upgrading Swarm Desktop App (Beta) from an ultra light to a light node
Go to the official Swarm Desktop webpage and download the installer. Run it and wait for the process to finish. Everything should be automatic and the node should set up by itself. A successful installation is indicated by the green status icon in the bottom left-hand side corner.
How to cash out gBZZ cheques — video tutorial
Only one month after we announced the 1 million BZZ tokens airdrop, the Swarm network has grown immensely.
How to run a Bee node and earn gBZZ
As we head towards the Swarm 1.0 release, we are working hard on expanding the network as much as possible. We are happy to see that the number of active Bee nodes is bigger day by day and the reality of a truly decentralized world computer is closer than ever.
