Bitcanna Validator Guide¶
This guide assumes you have followed the Node Guide.
Create a wallet¶
- Create the wallet and a password for the keyring. Replace
<wallet>with any name you like, just make sure to remember it!
- Store your wallet seed and keyring password somewhere safe. Use the command below if you ever need to recover it.
Create a validator¶
<moniker>with your validator display name.
<wallet>with the name of your validator wallet.
- Set the
--commissionvalues to your desired commission rates.
- Modify the chain-id from
bitcanna-1if mainnet isn't the target.
Backup your keys!¶
It's very important to keep a secure copy of your validator's private key,
which will allow you to recreate the validator if anything happens to your server.
Take a backup of this file:
If you restore it to a new node, it will begin signing blocks as your validator.
Be very careful! Signing from two nodes at the same time will result in a hard slash
