Deploying your bot
Once you have tested your bot locally, you are ready to deploy it to the Forta network production environment! Deploying your bot involves 3 key steps:
- publishing a Docker image
- registering it in the Bot Registry smart contract
- staking 100 FORT tokens on your bot
Acquiring Polygon MATIC tokens
The Bot Registry smart contract currently lives on Polygon mainnet, so you will need MATIC tokens on Polygon mainnet in order to deploy your bot. You can acquire some MATIC tokens by following this guide.
