- Run a node
- Node initialization
A moniker is a human-readable name that represents the validator node. It's a way to identify your validator to other participants in the network, much like a username or a handle. It's intended to be easier to remember and recognize than the validator's public key or operator address, which are long and difficult to distinguish at a glance. The moniker shows the activity of your node on the block explorer.
This step is not needed if you just want to run a node without validating.
You can set up the moniker of your node by launching the following command:
archwayd init <moniker> --chain-id <chain>
To connect to a specific network, you would need to change the <chain> accordingly.
For example, for the Triomphe mainnet network you would launch:
archwayd init my-node --chain-id archway-1
While for the Constantine testnet network you would launch:
archwayd init my-node --chain-id constantine-3
You can now set up the node keys.
