Create Wallet

artelad keys add wallet

Please enter 24 characters into C98 wallet to get the wallet address from the ETH chain

Use that ETH wallet address to go to the project's Discord to faucet

Create Validator

artelad tx staking create-validator \
--amount="1000000art" \
--pubkey=$(artelad tendermint show-validator) \
--moniker="Name-VNBnode" \
--commission-rate="0.10" \
--commission-max-rate="0.20" \
--commission-max-change-rate="0.01" \
--min-self-delegation="1" \
--gas="200000" \
--chain-id=artela_11822-1 \

Edit Validator

artelad tx staking edit-validator \
--new-moniker "NewName-VNBnode" \
--identity "06F5F34BD54AA6C7" \
--website "" \
--commission-rate="0.01" \
