Use our script for a quick installation:

wget -q -O && sudo chmod +x && /bin/bash

Set a name for your node and wait for the installation to complete. After that execute the following command:

source $HOME/.bash_profile

Create a wallet, don’t forget to save the mnemonic.

arkeod keys add wallet

Request tokens via the form.
After full synchronization, check the balance, if everything is okay go to the next step.

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

Create a validator:
Don’t change anything if you don’t understand what you’re doing.

arkeod tx staking create-validator \
--chain-id arkeo \
--commission-rate 0.05 \
--commission-max-rate 0.2 \
--commission-max-change-rate 0.1 \
--min-self-delegation "1" \
--amount 1000000uarkeo \
--pubkey $(arkeod tendermint show-validator) \
--moniker "$VALIDATOR" \
--from wallet \
--fees="5000uarkeo" \


You can check the node logs with the command:

journalctl -u arkeod -f -o cat

Restart node:

sudo systemctl restart arkeod

Check your node status:

curl localhost:26657/status

Check node synchronization, if results false – node is synchronized

curl -s localhost:26657/status | jq .result.sync_info.catching_up

Get your valoper address:

arkeod keys show wallet --bech val -a

Bond more tokens (if you want increase your validator stake you should bond more to your valoper address):

arkeod tx staking delegate YOUR_VALOPER_ADDRESS 1000000uarkeo --from wallet --chain-id $CHAIN_ID --fees="500uarkeo"

Active validators list:

arkeod query staking validators --limit 2000 -o json | jq -r '.validators[] | select(.status=="BOND_STATUS_BONDED") | [.operator_address, .status, (.tokens|tonumber / pow(10; 6)), .description.moniker] | @csv' | column -t -s"," | sort -k3 -n -r

Inactive validators list:

arkeod query staking validators --limit 2000 -o json | jq -r '.validators[] | select(.status=="BOND_STATUS_UNBONDED") | [.operator_address, .status, (.tokens|tonumber / pow(10; 6)), .description.moniker] | @csv' | column -t -s"," | sort -k3 -n -r
