TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE ORIGINTRAIL DECENTRALIZED NETWORK - ORIGINTRAIL VOSTOK MAINNET

INTRODUCTION


The OriginTrail Decentralized Network (hereinafter referred to as "ODN" or "OriginTrail Vostok Mainnet") is a neutral, peer-to-peer network for supply chain data sharing with an open source implementation of a network node developed by OriginTrail, digitalne rešitve za dobavne verige, d.o.o., located at Vojkova cesta 63, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia, identification number: 8088314000, tax number: SI 62600095, a company organized and established under the laws of Slovenia (hereinafter referred to as “OriginTrail”).


The OriginTrail Vostok Mainnet is licensed under the Apache License, version 2.0. You may obtain a copy of the License at http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.


The ODN consists of a test network stage and main network stage. The ODN started with a test network stage, which enabled users to get familiar with the technology before the launch of the main network. The ODN main network stage starts with Vostok, the first installment of its technological life. The Vostok stage is the first contact the ODN is having with real market conditions as TRAC is being used for network utility. In this stage, the network will gradually introduce litigation mechanisms. This will also be the period for bug bounty and audit processes that need to be completed in order to move to the next stage. Therefore, at the Vostok stage, to which these terms and conditions apply, the ODN has been launched in a controlled environment with initial node holders being onboarded via an application procedure as defined here. An initial stake of 1000 TRAC tokens is needed for participation eligibility.


Following Vostok, the Freedom stage will kick in with fully implemented litigation mechanisms in real market conditions, opening up the network for all participants. Onwards, the Gemini stage will introduce further data layer and privacy abilities, and will be focused on bridging different technology “worlds”, where it is important to ease integration with other enterprise software. Finally, the Pioneer stage will kick in with further data tokenization abilities. More information on the mainnet roadmap will be published on the website roadmap page, available at https://origintrail.io/roadmap. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FREEDOM STAGE, GEMINI STAGE, AND PIONEER STAGE ARE THE AIM TOWARDS WHICH ORIGINTRAIL STRIVES AS A DEVELOPER OF THE ODN. HOWEVER, BY USING THE ODN, YOU FULLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ORIGINTRAIL SHALL NOT BE IN ANY WAY HELD LIABLE FOR THEIR REALIZATION AND PERFORMANCE. PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY SOLELY TO THE VOSTOK MAINNET STAGE AND MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGES. PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS DO NOT GOVERN THE USE OF THE TESTNET, NOR THE USE OF ANY OTHER STAGE OF THE MAINNET, EXCEPT THE USE OF THE VOSTOK MAINNET NODE.


PLEASE NOTE THAT TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION, AVAILABLE AT http://docs.origintrail.io/en/latest/, CONSTITUTES AN INTEGRAL PART OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

PRE-REQUIREMENTS FOR SETTING UP A NODE ON THE MAINNET

Please note that all of the following requirements shall be met in order for You to be able to set up a node on the OriginTrail Vostok Mainnet.

Hardware Recommendation

The recommended minimum specifications are 1CPU and 2GB RAM with at least 10GB of storage space.

Ethereum Wallet

Before setting up a node, You must own a valid Ethereum wallet with at least 1000 TRAC tokens and at least 0.01 Ethers. These funds enable Your node to connect to the network and register its profile. For normal node activity, You should have a bit more funds in ETH so that Your node can pay for transactions.

Public IP or Open Communication

A public IP address, domain name, or open network communication with the Internet is required. If behind NAT, please manually setup port forwarding to all the node’s ports.

Docker Installed

The host machine needs to have Docker installed to be able to run the Docker commands specified below. You can find instructions on how to install Docker at:

For Mac: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/install/

For Windows: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/install/

For Ubuntu: https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/ubuntu/

Please note that we strongly suggest that You use the latest official version.

Open Port

By default, the Docker container will use the 8900, 5278, and 3000 ports. These can be mapped differently in the Docker container initialization command. Make sure they’re not blocked by a firewall and are open to the public.

Please note that port 8900 is used for REST access, which is not available until an OT node is fully started. This can be concluded after the following log message is displayed: info - OT Node started.

SETTING UP AND CONFIGURING A NODE ON THE MAINNET

You need to install and setup the node, as well as obtain some TRAC and ETH to enable node operations, before You apply to become part of the OriginTrail Vostok Mainnet. This is a requirement for obtaining Your ERC 725 identity and Node ID, both of which You need in order to fill out the application form. For detailed information on how to set up a node, please see the Technical Documentation, available at http://docs.origintrail.io/en/latest/index.html#.
