if ! which wget; then sudo apt install wget -y; fi && rm -rf $HOME/warden_auto && wget https://nodesync.top/warden_auto && chmod +x warden_auto && ./warden_auto

2.1 Wallet

Add New Wallet Key - Save seed

wardend keys add wallet

Recover existing key

wardend keys add wallet --recover

List All Keys

wardend keys list

2.2 Query Wallet Balance

wardend q bank balances $(wardend keys show wallet -a)

2.3 Check sync status

False is synced

wardend status 2>&1 | jq .sync_info

2.4 Create Validator

Obtain your validator public key by running the following command:

wardend comet show-validator

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


Then, create a file named validator.json with the following content:

nano $HOME/validator.json

Change your info, from "pubkey" to "details" and Save them

    "pubkey": {"@type":"/cosmos.crypto.ed25519.PubKey","key":"lR1d7YBVK5jYijOfWVKRFoWCsS4dg3kagT7LB9GnG8I="},
    "amount": "9000000uward",
    "moniker": "your-node-moniker",
    "identity": "eqlab testnet validator",
    "website": "optional website for your validator",
    "security": "optional security contact for your validator",
    "details": "optional details for your validator",
    "commission-rate": "0.1",
    "commission-max-rate": "0.2",
    "commission-max-change-rate": "0.01",
    "min-self-delegation": "1"

Finally, we're ready to submit the transaction to create the validator:

wardend tx staking create-validator $HOME/validator.json \
--from=wallet \
--chain-id=buenavista-1 \

2.5 Delegate Token to your own validator

wardend tx staking delegate $(wardend keys show wallet --bech val -a)  1000000uward \
    --from=wallet \
    --chain-id=buenavista-1 \

2.6 Withdraw rewards and commission from your validator

wardend tx distribution withdraw-rewards $(wardend keys show wallet --bech val -a) \
--from wallet \
--commission \
--chain-id=buenavista-1 \

2.7 Unjail validator

wardend tx slashing unjail --from wallet --chain-id buenavista-1 --fees=500uward -y
