Nym Wallet Preparation


Head to our website and download the Nym wallet for your operating system. If pre-compiled binaries for your operating system aren’t available, you can build the wallet yourself with instructions here.

If you don’t already have one, please create a Nym address using the wallet, and fund it with NYM tokens. The minimum amount required to bond a node is 100 NYM, but make sure you have a bit more to account for gas costs.

NYM can be purchased via Bity from the wallet itself with BTC or fiat, and is currently present on several exchanges.

Remember that you can only use Cosmos NYM tokens to bond your node. You cannot use ERC20 representations of NYM to run a node.

Sandbox testnet

Make sure to download a wallet and create an account as outlined above. Then head to our Operators Element channel and request testnet tokens.
