How do I get an API key?
You need to call the init command to get an API key.
How do I connect to my service?
When you use the CLI to create a service you will get a connection url in the response. You can also retrieve the connection url at a later date using the list command.
Which software can I run on Nodana?
At the moment we support phoenixd with plans to support other software in the near future.
How much does it cost to run a service?
Phoenixd nodes cost 0.4 sats per min or part thereof (approx $10 per month).
When do I get charged?
For services that have not been deleted, a charge will be automatically applied at the end of each day. If you choose to delete your service manually then there will be a charge at that point. Please note that once credit runs out, services created using your API key will be deleted.
Are you in Beta testing?
Yes, we are in beta testing at the moment and will be for a while. This means that at times things might go wrong but hopefuly not too often. Keep this in mind when running software on Nodana.
