Running Nodes with Cleos

If you are interested in blockchain development, chances are you have heard of EOSIO, one of the most popular blockchain platforms out there. To interact with EOSIO blockchain, you can use cleos, a command-line interface (CLI) tool that allows you to connect to and interact with the EOSIO blockchain network.

What are Nodes in EOSIO?

In the EOSIO network, nodes are computers that are connected to the blockchain network and help validate transactions and maintain the network. There are different types of nodes in the EOSIO network, including Full Nodes, Producer Nodes, and API Nodes.

Running Nodes with Cleos

In order to run nodes using cleos, you need to first install and configure it on your machine. Once you have done that, you can use the following commands to run nodes:

cleos wallet unlock
cleos -u http://node_address:port_number get info

The first command unlocks your wallet so that you can interact with the blockchain using cleos. The second command connects to the specified node and retrieves information about the blockchain network.

You can also use the following command to see a list of available nodes:

cleos -u http://node_address:port_number get account account_name

This command retrieves the account information for the specified account name and also displays the list of available nodes that are connected to the network.


In conclusion, running nodes with cleos in EOSIO blockchain is an essential part of blockchain development. With the commands mentioned above, you can easily connect to and interact with the blockchain network.
