Decentralize the Web! Set up your home-hosted Flux node with Seeed
It’s time to grab some Web3 to go. Flux is partnering with Seeed, a seasoned hardware manufacturer, to provide compatible hardware for setting up Flux nodes. Seeed offers leading hardware such as Nvidia Jetson, Raspberry Pi CM4, Intel Celeron J4125, and Tiger Lake. All hardware is ready to join the Flux network based on the new node requirements. Read on and hear how you can support Web3 by running a Flux node right from your home.
At the core of the Flux decentralized network are the Flux node operators and the nodes they provide. In order to have a powerful decentralized infrastructure for Web3, we need as many node operators as possible, delivering nodes that live up to our hardware requirements with maximum uptime.
Flux node operators can supply resources for the Flux network in various ways and can choose to host their nodes via a VPS provider or even better in their own home. Home-hosted nodes are vital in order to achieve decentralization.
In order to strengthen the Flux network, promote decentralization and bring more exciting possibilities for Flux node operators, Flux has made a very special partnership with Seeed.
Seeed has been enabling the global developer community since 2008, by providing open technology and agile manufacturing services, with the mission to make hardware more accessible and lower the threshold for hardware innovation. With Shenzhen’s vast resources, and trusted technology and distribution partners around the world, Seeed strives to be the most integrated platform for creating hardware solutions for IoT, edge AI applications.
Seeed provides best-in-class hardware with decades of expertise in hardware manufacturing and service. The expertise at Seeed will help Flux build a variety of hardware solutions for our node operator community on open hardware platforms. You will now be able to purchase compatible hardware such as Nvidia Jetson, Raspberry Pi CM4, Intel Celeron J4125, and Tiger Lake for your Flux node directly from Seeed. Flux and Seeed are also working on making it easier to deploy home-hosted nodes through pre-loads of FluxOS and easier node setup.
At Seeed you can find a variety of hardware configurations including Nvidia Jetson boards, Raspberry Pi CM4, Intel Celeron J4125, and Intel 11th Tiger Lake that can run a Flux node. There will be hardware configurations available for both Cumulus and Nimbus tier nodes. This hardware is compact and powerful and perfect for setting-up a Flux node in a domestic setting.
The Flux page at Seeed creates another exciting space for our node operator community to engage with and participate in building out the Flux ecosystem alongside our trusted partners at Seeed.

There has never been a better time to jump into the life of a Flux Node operator, with lower node collateral requirements, ready to deploy hardware, and the ability to soon host more than one node per IP everything is all set for home hosting to boom.
Flux cannot succeed without its dedicated community of Node operators and GPU miners that provide the resources needed to power the Flux ecosystem. With this new partnership with Seeed, our valued community will now have a platform for purpose-built and ready to deploy the hardware. We urge everyone to participate and take part in developing this partnership so Flux and Seeed can provide the best hardware platform going forward.
So explore and maybe order some Web3 to go!
Come and join the Web3 leader!
Technology is for everyone, and so is Flux. Flux is building the most powerful decentralized infrastructure to support Web3. There are lots of ways to participate and use the Flux ecosystem.
