initiad keys add wallet

Save all information after entering the command, without this you will not be able to restore data to the wallet. SAVE SEED PHRASE (12 words).

2️⃣ Go to the faucet and get test tokens to your wallet ( can be received every 24 hours)

Link Faucet

3️⃣ View your wallet balance

initiad keys q bank balances "address"

if the balance is displayed - continue further

4️⃣ View the sync status of your node

initiad status | jq | grep "catching_up"

If "true" - not synchronized // "false" - synchronized

5️⃣ Create validator

initiad tx mstaking create-validator \
--amount 2000000uinit \
--pubkey $(initiad tendermint show-validator) \
--moniker "$YOUR_MONIKER" \ #Validator name, displayed in explorers.
--identity "" \ #Use your KeyBase ID. If you don't have one, leave it empty.
--website "" \ #Your website is available, or leave the field blank
--details "$YOUR_DETAILS" \ #Any details about your validator.
--chain-id initiation-1 \
--commission-rate 0.05 \
--commission-max-rate 0.20 \
--commission-max-change-rate 0.05 \
--from wallet \
--fees 80000uinit \
-y

After entering the command, you will receive hash transactions, check the status in the explorer

6️⃣ Save priv_validator_key.json


cat $HOME/.initia/config/priv_validator_key.json
SAVE YOUR PRIVATE KEY AFTER ENTERING THE COMMAND
