This guide for the Stride’s Incentivized Testnet
Official docs available here.


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.

strided keys add wallet

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

strided q bank balances YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS

Create a validator:

strided tx staking create-validator \
--moniker="$STRIDE_NODENAME" \
--amount=1000000ustrd \
--fees 300ustrd \
--pubkey=$(strided tendermint show-validator) \
--chain-id=STRIDE-TESTNET-2 \
--commission-max-change-rate=0.01 \
--commission-max-rate=0.20 \
--commission-rate=0.10 \
--min-self-delegation=1 \
--from=wallet \


You can check the node logs with the command:

journalctl -u strided -f -o cat

Restart node:

systemctl restart strided

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:

strided keys show wallet --bech val -a

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

strided tx staking delegate YOUR_VALOPER_ADDRESS 10000000ustrd --from wallet --chain-id STRIDE-TESTNET-2 --fees 5000ustrd

Active validators list:

strided 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:

strided 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

Ports used:

26656, 26657, 9091, 9090, 6060, 1317
