What is gitopia?

gitopia is the name of the Gitopia application that validators need to install to run a full node on the Gitopia Mainnet. It comes with two main entrypoints:

  • gitopiad: The Gitopia Daemon and
  • command-line interface (CLI)

gitopiad is the command-line interface to interact with a gitopiad full-node. gitopiad is the only tool that supports 100% of the Gitopia Mainnet features, including accounts, transfers, delegation, and governance.

gitopiad is built on the Cosmos SDK using the following modules:

  • x/auth: Accounts and signatures.
  • x/bank: Token transfers.
  • x/staking: Staking logic.
  • x/mint: Inflation logic.
  • x/distribution: Fee distribution logic.
  • x/slashing: Slashing logic.
  • x/gov: Governance logic.
  • ibc-go/modules: Inter-blockchain communication. Hosted in the cosmos/ibc-go repository.
  • x/params: Handles app-level parameters.
