Using a local node
You have the choice of running your own node or using a remote node to sync with the network.
To run a local node you just run the havend in your terminal. You can also specify the location to save the sync data by using the
--data-dir command. The sync time will vary but can take several hours/days and require a considerable amount of disk space (30Gb+) but is the most secure method to use. Running your own node also helps secure the network and allows you to use your computer to mine Haven.
You can use a 3rd party remote node to sync with the network if you don’t have the disk space to store the entire blockchain. Instructions for this can be found here https://havenprotocol.org/knowledge/using-a-remote-node/
