Benefits of Being an Aethir Node Operator

Aethir, at the forefront of Web3, is showcasing their commitment to decentralisation and community-ownership. The first type of node in the Aethir network is the checker node and is available for any user to operate. These nodes play a vital role in the Aethir ecosystem as it helps verify the computational power by other node participants in the future.

Node operators play a vital role in ensuring the checks and balances within the Aethir ecosystem. In return for helping to verify the data and service provision, node operators can earn token rewards over the course of the next four years. 15% of the total token supply in the Aethir ecosystem has been set aside for checker Node Operators specifically.

Beyond that, users can also participate in the ecosystem in other ways — mining and other technical roles — to earn even more rewards.

This checker node sale gives anyone the opportunity to be a part of the network and support the Aethir ecosystem as it builds the largest collection of decentralised AI computational power, all without requiring extensive computational efforts from ordinary users.

1. About the Aethir Node Sale

Aethir’s Initial Node Offering (INO) is a unique opportunity for everyone to become Node Operators in the Aethir ecosystem, contributing to the decentralisation of cloud computing and earning rewards from being a network participant in return.

Aethir’s Node Sale has been designed to involve all types of participants. Starting price of checker nodes will be under $500 for earlier tiers, with prices increasing at each tier, and whitelists set aside for different participants amongst Aethir community, partner communities, KOLs, and venture capital teams.

The Checker Node license gives you a lifetime access and will be in the form of an ERC-721 NFT which will be non-transferable for the first year after the sale.

More documentation about Aethir’s nodes will be available soon. Keep an eye out on our social channels for more information.

More details on IDIA Staking Campaign

The IDIA Staking Campaign will be a standard sale format that you are already familiar with. The only difference is that during the “Allocation Period”, you will need to stake IDIA to determine your Whitelist Node Allocation.

The allocation will be determined based on the StakeWeight formula. More details below.

After the Allocation Period, you will receive your Whitelisted Node Allocation amount and you will need to complete your node purchase on Impossible Launchpad during the designated period, otherwise forfeited.

StakeWeight Formula

The Staking Campaign will follow Impossible’s standard StakeWeight Allocation model, where the number of nodes users get to purchase depends on 1) how much IDIA you stake and 2) how long you stake IDIA for in relation to the other stakers of the pool.

Due to the campaign special circumstances, the calculations for the StakeWeight formula will be rounded up to determine the node allocation.

Estimated Rewards = Number of Whitelisted Node/s you will receive

Staking Amount: The amount (and how long) you stake corresponds to the amount of node/s you will receive. However, the Estimate Reward may not always be a whole number (e.g., 1 or 2 nodes) and we cannot sell fractions of nodes (e.g., 0.7 nodes).

To purchase, you need to stake enough to obtain a whole number of Estimate Rewards. This balance will change daily as more users stake. If you drop below a full number (<1) you will need to increase your Stake to guarantee a Node allocation. So check regularly!

Your final Node allocation (based on our calculations) will be announced on 15/03/2024.


  • Estimate Rewards: 0.51 = 0 nodes
  • Estimate Rewards: 1.23 = 1 node
  • Estimate Rewards: 2.91 = 2 nodes

Partial Node Stake: If you do not qualify for a full node, we will conduct a random distribution based on your percentage.


  • Estimate Rewards: 0.1 will get 0 nodes but has a 10% chance to get 1 node
  • Estimate Rewards: 2.5 will get 2 nodes and a 50% chance to get 1 extra node.

Refer below for additional details:

IDIA Standard Pool
- Stake limit - Users can stake a maximum of 25,000 IDIA tokens at any one time (during the specified period) as consideration for allocation.

IDIA Unlimited Pool
- No stake limit - Users can stake any amount of IDIA at any time (during the specified period) as consideration for allocation

To maximise the Node Sale, we plan to over-allocate the Whitelist per wallet, which means users may be eligible for extra allocations. Moreover, to ensure fairness and a successful sale, we will be implementing a First-come, First-served (FCFS) model. However, this also means that you may lose your allocations if you do not purchase in time. So, be sure to participate as soon as possible to obtain your node/s.

Note: Impossible Finance has the right to determine the final allocation after the Staking Period to ensure fairness. We will share the final node allocation on this blog post and our social media on 18/03/2024.

This sale is exclusively for wallet addresses with allocations announced and is not open to the public.

How to Participate in the Staking and Purchase Campaign of the Impossible Whitelist Campaign

Step 1: Complete KYC on Impossible Finance if you haven’t already.

Step 2: Get IDIA on Arbitrum Network.

Step 3: Stake IDIA in the Unlimited or Standard pool

Step 4: Check your results on 15/03/2024

Step 5: Purchase your allocated amount on Impossible Launchpad

KYC Details

  • In order to run a Aethir node & receive rewards, Aethir team requires you to KYC. By passing KYC on the Impossible Launchpad platform, you will automatically be eligible for the rewards and not have to KYC again.
  • KYC Period: Rolling ongoing basis. Users are required to hold at least 25 IF or 15 IDIA to start KYC. Users can KYC anytime during the entire timeline, but will not be able to stake until their KYC is completed. To maximize the staking utility of users' IDIA, users have to pass KYC before the staking period begins. In other words:
  • If users pass KYC after the end of the staking period, they will miss the opportunity to participate.
  • If users pass KYC during staking period, they will only be able to stake for the remaining staking period and receive a lesser allocation than if they were to start staking from the beginning of the staking period.
  • For more details about how to verify your wallet and pass KYC, follow our guide here!

  • Impossible reserves the right to determine the allocation of the Nodes
