Create a Farm

If you want to start farming, you need a farmID, the ID of the farm that is owning the hardware node(s) you connect to the TFGrid.

Currently on:

Click CREATE FARM and choose a name.

Click Submit and sign the action.

The farm is by default set up as 'DIY'. A farm can become certified through certification program. Also a pricing policy is defined. Pricing policy is currently the same for all farms, the field is created for future use.

Add a public IP to your Farm

If you have public IPv4 addresses available that can be used for usage on the TFGrid, you can add them in your farm. Click ADD IP, specify the addresses, the gateway and click CREATE. You can add them one by one or using range of IPs.

Some notes about adding a new IPs:

  • Be careful not to create a new IP range that contains an IP address that already exists; doing so will result in an error.
  • Verify that both the gateway address and the IP address are correct.
  • Be careful not to include the same gateway address in a new IP range.

Deleting IPv4 addresses is also possible here. The Deployed Contract ID gives an indication of whether an IP is currently used. If it is 0, it is safe to remove it.

Add a Stellar address for payout

In a first phase, farming of tokens still results in payout on the Stellar network. So to get the farming reward, a Stellar address needs to be provided.

Generate your node bootstrap image

Once you know your farmID, you can set up your node on TFGrid3. Click on View bootstrap.

After booting a node, the info will become available in your portal, including the status info along with the minting and fixup receipts.

Clicking on the node statistics will open up a calendar where you can view the periods the node was minting or undergoing a fixup. Clicking on the periods will show a popup with the start and end datetimes, receipt hash and the amount of TFTs minted (if it is a minting receipt).

You can also download a single node's receipts using the Download Receipts button within the node statistics. Moreover, you can download all of the nodes' receipts using the Download Receipts button on the top left corner of the farm nodes table.

Capacity Explorer

In the upper right corner, you can click on EXPLORER to get a view of all capacity connected to TFGrid v3. For more info, see here.
