To register a stake pool in the blockchain, we need to create a stake pool certificate and send it to the blockchain. This requires us to have enough funds to pay for the transaction fee. Note: Step 3.2 will change once the Incentivized testnet is launched.
Run the following command to download the
createAddress.sh script in the same location:
curl -sLOJ https://raw.githubusercontent.com/input-output-hk/jormungandr-qa/master/scripts/createAddress.sh
Make the script executable:
chmod +x createAddress.sh
- Create a new account address.
./createAddress.sh account | tee stakepool_owner_account.txt
The script returns your cryptographic keys and an address of type account. We are saving them in the file stakepoolowneraccount.txt IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SAVE YOUR KEYS FOR FUTURE USE
