This is a full guide to setting up a Ledgerium node on a fresh Linux machine. The blockchain ecosystem is a combination of multiple technologies that come together. It is overwhelming to know that so much has been achieved in a short span. The tech stacks range from (not limited to this list) Docker, NodeJS, GoLang, Yarn, Solidity and supporting Web3.js. Let's start with hardware first.
