Become a validator post genesis
After genesis, you can still join the network as a user and become a validator through self-bonding.
After this has been completed, you will need to increase your validator's
bonded-stake, which can be done by self-bonding tokens sourced from the faucet.
In order to gain more NAM, the following command can be run:
namadac transfer \ --token NAM \ --amount 1000 \ --source faucet \ --target $VALIDATOR_ALIAS \ --signing-keys $VALIDATOR_ALIAS
Note: A maximum amount of 1000 NAM can be sourced from the faucet per transaction, so to get more, run this multiple times.
Follow this guide on how to self-bond a validator's tokens.
In order to vote on blocks, a validator must have enough
bonded-stake to be included in the validators "consensus-set". A validator is in the consensus set if and only if it has enough
bonded-stake to be in the top 128 validators by
To query the bonded-stake for all the validators in the current epoch, run the following command:
