Node Installation

# Initia Node Setup Script - This script automates the setup of an Initia node on a server.

You can easily install your Initia node on your server by entering the following command.

MONIKER = The name of your node.

The snapshot starts you from a more recent block, thereby eliminating the synchronization time.

wget -q -O && sudo chmod +x && ./ && source $HOME/.bash_profile

You can monitor the synchronization status of your node with this command. Once synchronized, you can proceed with the following steps.

curl http://localhost:26657/status | jq

Create an Initia wallet (don't forget to save the mnemonics)

initiad keys add $KEYNAME

After creating your wallet, request tokens with your wallet address from After a short while, you can check your wallet balance with this command:

initiad q bank balances $ADDRESS

Create a validator (enter the name of your validator in the Moniker field).

initiad tx mstaking create-validator \
 --amount=5000000uinit \
 --pubkey=$(initiad tendermint show-validator) \
 --moniker="$MONIKER" \
 --chain-id=initiation-1 \
 --from=$KEYNAME \
 --commission-rate="0.10" \
 --commission-max-rate="0.20" \
 --commission-max-change-rate="0.01" \
 --gas=2000000 \
