Rpc Node Guide


Installing Required Packages and Go

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
sudo apt install curl tar wget clang pkg-config libssl-dev jq build-essential bsdmainutils git make ncdu -y

Download and install Go:

cd $HOME
wget "https://golang.org/dl/go$ver.linux-amd64.tar.gz"
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/go
sudo tar -C /usr/local -xzf "go$ver.linux-amd64.tar.gz"
rm "go$ver.linux-amd64.tar.gz"
echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin:$HOME/go/bin" >> $HOME/.bash_profile
source $HOME/.bash_profile
go version

Setup Humans Node

git clone https://github.com/humansdotai/humans.git
cd humans
git checkout v1.0.0
make install

Initialize the node with your moniker:

humansd init $MONIKER --chain-id humans_1089-1

Configure seeds, gas prices, and further settings for optimal performance:

sed -i -e "s|^seeds *=.*|seeds = \"f8006da7d742777eeca0194b94586c8f147be4f6@humans-mainnet-seed.itrocket.net:17656,babc3f3f7804933265ec9c40ad94f4da8e9e0017@seed.rhinostake.com:18456,0e959a22dfdd34ac16f9af82d76ec6ae5f0e8e73@,400f3d9e30b69e78a7fb891f60d76fa3c73f0ecc@humans.rpc.kjnodes.com:12259\"|" $HOME/.humansd/config/config.toml

Install and Configure Systemd

echo "[Unit]

ExecStart=$(which humansd) start --home /path/.humansd/ --chain-id humans_1089-1 --metrics --evm.tracer=json --minimum-gas-prices=1800000000aheart json-rpc.api eth,txpool,personal,net,debug,web3,miner --api.enable

WantedBy=multi-user.target" > $HOME/humansd.service

sudo mv $HOME/humansd.service /etc/systemd/system

sudo systemctl enable humansd
sudo systemctl restart humansd 

Monitor your node

sudo journalctl -u humansd -f --no-hostname -o cat

Check and Configure Ports

  • nano $HOME/.humansd/config/app.toml
    address = ""
    ws-address = ""
    enable = true
    swagger = false
    address = "tcp://"
    nano $HOME/.humansd/config/config.toml
    laddr = "tcp://"

Use Caddy for Domain Binding

sudo apt install -y debian-keyring debian-archive-keyring apt-transport-https
curl -1sLf 'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/caddy/stable/gpg.key' | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/caddy-stable-archive-keyring.gpg
curl -1sLf 'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/caddy/stable/debian.deb.txt' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/caddy-stable.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install caddy

Configure Caddyfile for domain routing:

nano /etc/caddy/Caddyfile

:80 {
    root * /usr/share/caddy

rpc-humans.huginn.tech {
    reverse_proxy {
        header_down Access-Control-Allow-Origin *

api.humans.huginn.tech {
    reverse_proxy {
        header_down Access-Control-Allow-Origin *

evm-rpc.humans.huginn.tech {
    reverse_proxy {
        header_down Access-Control-Allow-Origin *

Register domains with a hosting service: Use a service like Cloudflare to manage your domains.
