What is Heimdall?

Heimdall is the name of the validator layer for Matic Network. It comes with 2 main entrypoints:

  • heimdalld: The heimdall Daemon, runs a full-node of the heimdall application.
  • heimdallcli: The Heimdall command-line interface, which enables interaction with a heimdall full-node.

The core responsibility of heimdall is to verify all state transitions happening on bor and to submit a checkpoint on Ethereum chain cementing the side-chain state.

To move forward you need to install Go or run using our docker containers.
