Coming from a different client? Check out the migration guide.

Nimbus is a client for the Ethereum network that is lightweight, secure and easy to use.

Its efficiency and low resource consumption allows it to perform well on all kinds of systems: ranging from Raspberry Pi's and mobile devices — where it contributes to low power consumption and security — to powerful servers where it leaves resources free to perform other tasks, such as running an execution node.

This book describes the consensus layer client, nimbus-eth2. An execution client, nimbus-eth1, is also under development.
