This script will create a new key-pair for you. Safely store the private key and address and proceed to fund your new account with 200,000 SX.
Once completed, send the fellow validators a message in #validators with your public address and Node ID.
DO NOT share your private key with anyone and keep it in a safe place. Ensure you back this up as well
3. Running your validator
At this point, active validator operators will "vote in" your address as a new validator to the set - when this process has been completed and an SX admin in the #validators channel says you are ready to run your node, copy + paste the line below to start to start your validator:
cd ~/validator &&chmod +x start_validator.sh && ./start_validator.sh "$(curl http://checkip.amazonaws.com)"
Viewing log output
At any point after starting up your validator, you can view its log output by entering the following line:
sudo journalctl -u sx-node -f
Once your address has been successfully added to the validator set, you should see recurring AcceptState entries similar to what can be seen below:
