Use our script for a quick installation:

wget -q -O && chmod +x && sudo /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.

nolusd keys add wallet

Get tokens in the discord, #testnet-faucet section.
After full synchronization, check the balance, if everything is okay go to the next step.

nolusd q bank balances YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS

Also you can check balance in the explorer.
Create a validator:

nolusd tx staking create-validator \
--amount=1000000unls \
--pubkey=$(nolusd tendermint show-validator) \
--moniker="$NOLUS_NODENAME" \
--chain-id=nolus-rila \
--commission-rate="0.1" \
--commission-max-rate="0.10" \
--commission-max-change-rate="0.01" \
--min-self-delegation="1000000" \
--gas-prices 0.0042unls \
--from=wallet \


You can check the node logs with the command:

journalctl -u nolusd -f

Restart node:

systemctl restart nolusd

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:

nolusd keys show wallet --bech val -a

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

nolusd tx staking delegate YOUR_VALOPER_ADDRESS 10000000unls --from wallet --chain-id nolus-rila --fees 5000unls

Active validators list:

nolusd 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:

nolusd 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

Remove node:

systemctl stop nolusd
systemctl disable nolusd
rm -rf $(which nolusd) ~/.nolus ~/nolus-core
