Set up validator

Official documentation: https://nibiru.fi/docs/run-nodes/testnet/

1. Create a wallet

First of all we will need to create wallet for our validator. You have two options for that.

Option 1 - Create new wallet

nibid keys add wallet

Option 2 - Recover existing wallet

nibid keys add wallet --recover

Save the mnemonic output as this is the only way to recover your validator wallet in case you lose it!

To list your wallets use command below

nibid keys list

2. Fund a wallet

To create validator you have to fund the previously created wallet command below:

NIBIRU_WALLET_ADDRESS=$(nibid keys show wallet -a)
curl -X POST -d '{"address": "'"$NIBIRU_WALLET_ADDRESS"'", "coins": ["100000000unibi","100000000000unusd"]}' https://faucet.itn-2.nibiru.fi/

To check wallet balance use command below

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

3. Create validator

Please make sure you have adjusted moniker, identity, details, website to match your values.

nibid tx staking create-validator \
--amount 1000000unibi \
--pubkey $(nibid tendermint show-validator) \
--moniker "YOUR_MONIKER_NAME" \
--identity "YOUR_KEYBASE_ID" \
--details "YOUR_DETAILS" \
--website "YOUR_WEBSITE_URL" \
--chain-id cataclysm-1 \
--commission-rate 0.05 \
--commission-max-rate 0.20 \
--commission-max-change-rate 0.01 \
--min-self-delegation 1 \
--from wallet \
--fees 5000unibi \
-y

Save the ~/.nibid/config/priv_validator_key.json file as this is the only way to recover your validator signing key in case you lose it!

Set up Price Feeder

To run pricefeeder you validator should be in active set. Otherwise price feeder will not vote on periods.

Install the pricefeeder binary

curl -s https://get.nibiru.fi/pricefeeder@v1.0.0! | bash

Create new wallet for pricefeeder and save 24 word mnemonic phrase

nibid keys add pricefeeder-wallet

Send some tokens to the pricefeeder-wallet

nibid tx bank send wallet $(nibid keys show pricefeeder-wallet -a) 1000000unibi --from wallet --chain-id cataclysm-1 --fees 5000unibi -y

In order to make pricefeeder work, it needs some tokens to pay for transaction fees

Export pricefeeder mnemonic into environment variable

export FEEDER_MNEMONIC="my pricefeeder 24 word mnemonic phrase goes here ..."

Setup the systemd service

export CHAIN_ID="cataclysm-1"
export GRPC_ENDPOINT="localhost:13990"

Delegate pricefeeder responsibility

As a validator, if you’d like another account to post prices on your behalf (i.e. you don’t want your validator mnemonic sending txs), you can delegate pricefeeder responsibilities to another nibi address.

nibid tx oracle set-feeder $(nibid keys show pricefeeder-wallet -a) --from wallet --fees 5000unibi -y

Register and start the systemd service

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable pricefeeder.service
sudo systemctl start pricefeeder.service

View pricefeeder logs

journalctl -fu pricefeeder.service -o cat
