Validate on Questnet

Please note that with the launch of our mainnet, Questnet will primarily be used by developers as a testing environment for upcoming features.

This guide assumes you already have Quasar binary running and your node is fully synced.
If not, please review these articles:

You can promote your node to validator by staking sufficient tokens.

  1. Provide your public address to the Quasar team and ask for testnet tokens to be able to create your validator.

Promote Your Node to Validator

If you've got enough tokens, you can use the following command:

quasarnoded tx staking create-validator \
--amount 1000000uqsr \
--chain-id="< questnet-01/02/03/etc >" \
--moniker=< node_moniker > \
--website="" \
--details="Joining quasar testnet" \
--commission-rate="0.1" \
--commission-max-rate="0.20" \
--commission-max-change-rate="0.01" \
--min-self-delegation="1" \
--identity="other_validator" \
--from < validator_key_name > \
--keyring-backend < keyring name > \
--pubkey=$(quasarnoded tendermint show-validator)

NOTE: Your validator will stay as "unbonded" if you stake less than 1000000 tokens. 1
