Bridging content into the Portal beacon network#

Seeding from content bridges#

Run a Fluffy node with the JSON-RPC API enabled.

./build/fluffy --rpc

Build & run the portal_bridge for the beacon network:

make portal_bridge

TRUSTED_BLOCK_ROOT=0x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234 # Replace with trusted block root.
# --rest-url = access to beacon node API, default
./build/portal_bridge beacon --trusted-block-root:${TRUSTED_BLOCK_ROOT} --rest-url:

The portal_bridge will connect to Fluffy node over the JSON-RPC interface and start gossiping an LightClientBootstrap for given trusted block root and gossip backfill LightClientUpdates.

Next, it will gossip a new LightClientOptimisticUpdate, LightClientFinalityUpdate and LightClientUpdate as they become available.
