Getting Started

UltronGlow is an EVM-compatible Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain network. Validators on any PoS network perform the important task of ordering and appending transactions to the ledger. In UltronGlow, the PoS consensus mechanism has been improved to ensure any participant that wants to validate on the network has a fair chance to do so.

Deploying a validator node on the UltronGlow network can be a technically complex process, requiring skills in building and deploying code, as well as ensuring the Validator node is performant and highly- available. When deploying a validator, the deploying party must stake a minimum amount of 20 UTG, however the more you stake, the more potential you have to generate blocks and earn rewards.


  • Ensure your computer meets the following requirements:

    CPU8 cores
    OSCentOS 7.2 64-bit
    Disk (System)100GB
    Disk (Data)2TB
  • Install Metamask and create a new account if you haven't already.

  • Purchase a minimum of 20 UTG (UltronGlow's native token) from Hotcoin Global or Bitmart and transfer your UTG to your MetaMask wallet.


Running a Validator on any PoS network runs the risk of your stake being slashed in the event that the computer acting as a Validator is unavailable. This could be due to poor internet connectivity, a system crash or power failure. It's recommended that you only run a Validator if you have a highly-available system.

For details on deploying an UltronGlow validator, please see our guide on Github.
