Mysterium Node - decentralized VPN built on blockchain

Go Report Card pipeline status codecov GoDoc

Cross-platform software to run a node in Mysterium Network. It contains Mysterium server (node), client API (tequila API) and client-cli (console client) for Mysterium Network.

Currently node supports WireGuard as its underlying VPN transport.

Getting Started

Installation options

Debian / Ubuntu / Raspbian

Install latest stable release:

sudo -E bash -c "$(curl -s"

Or install latest snapshot (development build):

SNAPSHOT=true sudo -E bash -c "$(curl -s"

Service logs:

sudo journalctl -u mysterium-node.service

Service status:

sudo systemctl status mysterium-node.service

Installation script tested on these OSes so far: Raspbian 10, Debian 9, Debian 10, Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 20.04.


Our docker images can be found in Docker hub.

To run a node in a docker container you will need docker. On Linux, to manage docker as a non-root user (execute commands without sudo), follow postinstall guide. You should be able to run a node on any OS that supports docker. We have tested it on these OSes so far:

  • Debian 9
  • Debian 10
  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • Ubuntu 20.04
  • Ubuntu 22.04
  • Yocto Linux (BalenaOS)

Run node:

docker run \
  --cap-add NET_ADMIN \
  --net host \
  --name myst -d \
  mysteriumnetwork/myst service --agreed-terms-and-conditions

Access service logs:

docker logs -f myst

Further information

More installation options are described in the installation guide. For possible issues while running a node refer to our Troubleshooting guide.
