How to run your Artela via SATEA

Step 1: Purchase Artela nodes

  1. Login and select Artela

  2. Select the number of nodes and node duration

After confirming that there are no errors, please follow the instructions to complete the payment.

Step 2: Submit node customization information

After the payment is done, you can customize the node name, profile and avatar, please click open ticket in Satea Official Discord: for selecting “Open Ticket” to open the ticket and submit it.

Submit Contents:

Satea Registration Email

Node Name

Node Profile

Node Avatar

If you have purchased more than one Artela node for the same account, please send all the information required for the node.

Please send your customize node information within 24 hours of your node purchase by opening a ticket in Satea Discord, and the Satea team will reply in Discord to confirm this. If you do not send your customize node information within 24 hours, the name, profile and bio of the node you purchased will be randomized by Satea.

Notes on filling in node information:

As the node name, profile and bio can be linked to the node runner's social media, website, etc., which in turn reflects the node runner's experience and community contributions, try to keep it consistent with your common social media. Alternatively, if you have experience running a verifier node on another project, you can use your previous verifier node name and profile for Artela's node verifier.

The system will automatically perform node configuration and synchronization, which is expected to be completed within 24 hours, with no additional operations required during this period.

Once configuration is complete, the platform will disclose detailed node information to fill out the node tutorial. Node information includes:

Node Name

Running Infrastructure

Validator Address

Delegator Address

Faucet Address

Step 3: Complete the Artela Verifier Node Registration Form

Node Verifiers will also need to fill out the registration form at in order to be selected by the Artela Foundation as a selected delegate recipient to receive the Foundation's exclusive Verifier Incentive. The form should be submitted to the Artela Foundation.

Upon successful submission, Artela may approve the application and contact you via email if your combined contributions fulfill the criteria.

In addition, in the registration form, you can also add specific contributions during the run of the node verifier and synchronize these contributions for submission on

1. Verifier Node Incentives Explained

For all verifiers, Artela Foundation will follow the guidelines of verifier points.

The Artela Foundation will monitor the performance and specific contributions of each verifier according to the Verifier Points Guidelines.

In each phase, Artela will select 35 to 40 Verifier nodes as Delegated Acceptors, and Artela will award 2,000 ART tokens for each Testnet phase in which each selected Verifier participates. The list of delegated recipients will be updated every quarter and will be allocated based on the ranking of each selected Verifier's contribution points, so the higher the points, the better the chances of being a selected Verifier.

Even if they are not selected but have contributed to Artela, Verifiers will still be able to indicate their contribution by creating an issue in the contribute-to-artela repo.In its official blog, Artela states that all contributions will be valued and will continue to be tracked for future selection of Verifiers and various rewards. And informs the verifiers “Please remember to keep the wallet used for the Artela verifier node. artela will track contributions to the testnet through this address!”

It is therefore foreseeable that verifier nodes that are not selected may or will also be incentivized after achieving higher verifier contribution points. So be sure to mention your contributions to the contribute-to-artela repo in a timely manner.

Detailed guidelines for verifier contribution points

Points tasks are divided into 3 parts: General Tasks, Public Welfare Contributions and Community Contributions.

1.General Tasks

There are 5 tasks in this section, the basic ones are “Set up your validator” and “Maintain high uptime”, complete the validator node setup and maintain high uptime. For users who have completed the one-click node hosting with Satea, this part will be done by Satea on their behalf, and Satea backend operation will guarantee the nodes are running stably.

‘Vote on Governance Proposal’ and ‘Tasks participation’ require users to enter code in the node client, which is difficult to operate. Satea will provide detailed tutorials for Artela when there are governance votes or other tasks. As for “Sign the genesis block”, no specific instruction has been given by the official, Satea will update it after Artela official gives specific explanation.

2.Contribute to the public

This section assesses the verifier's technical contributions to Artela, including building tools and DAPPs for the Artela ecosystem, contributing to the codebase, finding security bugs, etc. It is more suitable for developers in the Artela ecosystem, and is more difficult for general users to participate.

3.Community contributions

This part of the contribution is more realizable.

Educational contents: Write articles contributing to Artela, including technical blogs, project highlights, etc.

Events: Organize events related to Artela, such as hosting an AMA as a KOL, inviting Artela to co-speak, or introducing Artela in a positive light.

Community moderation: Participate in community management in Discord, organize community events, etc.

Validator moderation: Organize the Validator program and other activities to help manage validators.

Dev community moderation: organizing hackathons and other events to educate and incubate developers.

Of the above, Educational contents is the easiest to achieve, and the threshold for writing popular science articles or project introduction articles is relatively low. If you are a KOL or other project side, you can consider co-organizing events with Artela to achieve events tasks. Additionally, staying active in Discord and becoming a MOD is a great way to increase community contributions.
