Steps to Run a Full Node

Download loopmainnet.json and static-nodes.json from https://github.com/loopnetwork/loopchain
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/loopnetwork/loop-chain/master/loopmainnet.json
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/loopnetwork/loop-chain/master/static-nodes.json
Make node folder
mkdir node
Initialize the Node
./geth --datadir ./node init loopmainnet.json
Copy the static-nodes.json to node/geth
Run the Nodes
./geth --datadir node1 --syncmode 'full' --gcmode=archive --port 40605 --http --http.port 3545 --http.api 'personal,eth,net,web3,personal,admin,miner,txpool,debug' --bootnodes enode://5cefccf77557d8f41c3ff6777a5c73ef57a4999c8878788e659ec45dcaaca71b0[email protected] --networkid 15551 -unlock '0xf32d3C2cC0e32eb36a0AF24d0B72E43AE41b0230' --allow-insecure-unlock
