This section describes how to run an Audius node.
The Audius protocol is powered by two off-chain services, the Discovery Node and the Content Node.
- Indexes blockchains used by the Audius protocol (Main-net Ethereum, POA, and Solana)
- Serves API traffic
- Tracks usage metrics
- Hosts audio and image content
- Syncs content across nodes to ensure data is consistent and highly available (using IPFS and the Audius Storage Protocol under the hood)
