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). ▶️ Example: address: warden1vcxv7xc6hjf1212340chefqwny7q55judnpsk # Your wallet name: wallet pubkey: '{"@type":"/cosmos.crypto.secp256k1.PubKey","key":"AqgSEuNIGf5137XYrYEfwKMKrKPM9p3hunnl1XNEGf"}' type: local

$request address

3️⃣ Show priv_validator_key.json

cat $HOME/.warden/config/priv_validator_key.json

4️⃣ Create validator

Create a validator.json file

touch $HOME/.warden/config/validator.json

To find out your pubkey, use the command (Save your Pubkey)

wardend comet show-validator

Output Example:

The output will be similar to this (with a different key):


Open a validator.json file

nano $HOME/.warden/config/validator.json

Paste this into the open validator.json file, pre-replacing all values ​​that start with $ (you can do it in any convenient editor, not directly in nano mode)

        "pubkey": {$PUBKEY},
        "amount": "1000000uward",
        "moniker": "$MONIKER",
        "identity": "$IDENTITY",
        "website": "",
        "security": "$EMAIL",
        "details": "$DETAILS",
        "commission-rate": "0.1",
        "commission-max-rate": "0.2",
        "commission-max-change-rate": "0.01",
        "min-self-delegation": "1"

Replace the following values with your own: WALLET - usually it's 'wallet', or your wallet's name. MONIKER - any convenient name for your validator, displayed in the explorer. IDENTITY - validator's avatar, displayed in the explorer. Create a KeyBase ID following the instructions or leave it empty, and it will default to a standard one. DETAILS - details about your validator, also displayed in the explorer.

WEBSITE - your website/github/twitter, etc., if you don't want to specify anything - leave it blank

Replace all necessary values indicated above with the $ sign to successfully create your validator. Example:

        "pubkey": {"@type":"/cosmos.crypto.ed25519.PubKey","key":"lR1d7YBVK5jYijOfWVKRFoWCsS4123dg3kagT7LB9GnG8I="},
        "amount": "1000000uward",
        "moniker": "Oliver",
        "identity": "", #if you have your identifier, replace it, or leave it blank
        "website": "", #if you have your website, replace it, or leave it blank
        "security": "qwerty@gmail.com",
        "details": "A reliable validator", 
        "commission-rate": "0.1",
        "commission-max-rate": "0.2",
        "commission-max-change-rate": "0.01",
        "min-self-delegation": "1"

After creating the validator.json and entering all the necessary information, as well as provided that there are tokens in the wallet, run the create command:

wardend tx staking create-validator $HOME/.warden/config/validator.json \
--chain-id buenavista-1 \
--gas-adjustment="1.5" \
--fees 2000uward \
--from wallet
