How do I configure my node to connect to the MainNet?

Should I edit updatekey.json? And what should I put in it?

Thanks for asking the question.

I am keen to learn as well to point my node to mainnet.

Found the answer.
Just replace genesis.json with https://raw.githubusercontent.com/algorand/go-algorand/812c9b843e3ba8ddae9648669d0c34f61e571b22/installer/genesis/mainnet/genesis.json.

where did you find this guide @elvinsophus?

@jevinoh if you look under your ~/node directory, assuming that you installed everything under that dir, you will find a folder called genesisfiles . There you will find three subfolders, devnet, mainnet and testnet. There you will find the genesis.json files.

If you do a new install it should default to MainNet. If you have testnet running shut it down, create a new data directory for MainNet, copy the genesis.json from the genesisfiles/mainnet directory into it. Start the node and point at the new directory
./goal node start -d ~/node/newdirwithgenesisfile

Can confirm that a fresh install defaults to the mainnet. Anyone running a relay node already? Does anyone know estimate rewards for running a participant and a relay node?

oh. i see they are there. Let’s see if it works.

I setup my first node today, Im default on Mainnet, but i cant get my account online due to insufficent funds

That is correct until you have tokens. Did win tokens in the Auctions?

Anyone already accepted on whitelist for relay node? How many days do you usually got confirmation from the team that your node is accepted for relay?

I think you can know more about it in this thread.

Relays on MainNet are heavily scrutinized and we are not currently accepting public offers. Once things have settled and we have processes and policies in place we will let everyone know.

I saw that bilaxy.com has already launched the currency and can ask their technicians.
