Run a Linea node

There are no financial incentives for running a Linea node, but it does allow you to:

  • Call the Linea JSON RPC API methods and submit transactions to the mempool without relying on an RPC provider.
  • Have a local copy of the Linea blockchain. This view of the state is "trusted" until the transaction, or the block that transaction is in, has been finalized on L1.

Running a sequencer node is currently not possible and there is no option to vote on blocks as part of the consensus mechanism or fork-choice like on Ethereum.
