It’s official! The Swarm team is proud to announce that the Swarm mainnet has launched.
Bee 1.0 has been released and is running on mainnet. This means everybody can now join in creating the Swarm mainnet network. This is a historical moment in the history of Swarm.
Node operators that wish to continue operating testnet nodes should start their nodes anew and should cash out cheques before updating. You can still run a testnet Bee: it helps the dev team to have a quality testing environment.
What do node operators need to do?
Node operators can download and run Bee…
Today, the Swarm team is releasing Bee v1.0-rc4. Node operators who have been running testnet nodes can now update to this new version. Take this opportunity to participate in the final days of the airdrop campaign.
Before updating, cash out all cheques. Once this is done, Bee nodes can be updated as normal. Caution: v0.6.2 stamped chunks need to be re-uploaded and restamped with v1.0-rc4.
In preparation for the upcoming mainnet release, the network ID of the testnet has been changed from 1 to 10.
Make sure that the network ID is set to this new default value of 10…
The airdrop is coming to an end. And what a ride it has been. Since the announcement of the airdrop, the Swarm network has grown from 200 Bee nodes to hundreds of thousands of Bees all over the globe.
Many wonderful people have joined the Swarm community and contributed greatly to the quality of the Swarm software, community and documentation. To each of you: thanks!
The end of the airdrop marks the start of a new journey; please join the mainnet or continue operating nodes on the testnet, thereby contributing to Swarm’s mission to empower digital freedom.
If you have…

April was a heads-down / work-hard month for the Swarm team. A lot of things have been going on in the background. We’re proud to share our progress.
TLDR; Try out Bee Dashboard which can help you setup your Bee node, monitor its status and perform actions like uploading files and cashing out cheques. Special thanks to our contributors matmertz25, centerorbit and tmm360
Good infrastructure is something that you are using and you don’t even think about it. It just works.
At Swarm, we are striving to build just that. Good infrastructure. But this is a process and just as it took skilled engineers to set up wireless networks 20 years ago, we too are at the stage where starting up a Bee node entails several steps with…
