【GUIDE】Becoming Lisk Delegate and Forging activation

Thu Nov 17, 2016 7:29 am

    Hello!

    Here is a little, but comprehensive guide for delegate registration and subsequent forging activation. I have tried to depict the most convenient way to do so. Feel free to ask any questions or express your wishes. Good luck!



0. PREREQUISITES


    — Setup your own Lisk Node (you can use great cc001's tutorial for example)
    — Check that you have Installed curl, wget, tar, sudo, unzip, zip
    — Create a lisk user with sudo and set a password.
    — Update the systems Locale
    — Download and Install Lisk
    — Create new account
    Save the passphrase at multiple secure locations!



1. REGISTER YOURSELF AS A DELEGATE


    — Open web interface of your Lisk node

Image
Image

    — Open FORGING tab and click on DELEGATE REGISTRATION button

Image

    — Choose and enter your delegate name. Keep in mind that you can't change it later!
    Also remember about a fee of 25 LSK. When you are ready, click REGISTER.

Image

    — After a couple of moments you should see your new name next to your wallet number

Image

    — Congratulations! your delegate has been registered!
    But if you gonna try to activate forging right now, most likely you will fail and see the 'Access Denied' error

Image
Image


2. ACTIVATE FORGING


    — Connect to your node via SSH. Change directory to Lisk folder

Image

    — Open config.json in any editor, for example nano by running:

    Code: Select all

    nano config.json

Image

    — In the forging section leave 'force' to false, enter your passphrase as 'secret' and whitelist your IP. Save the changes by pressing Ctrl+O, then press Ctrl+X to exit

Image

    — Now reload your Lisk instance by running:

    Code: Select all

    bash lisk.sh reload

Image


3. VOTE FOR DELEGATES


    — Open web interface of your Lisk node again. Open Forging tab and check that Forging is enabled

Image

    — Open Delegates tab. Choose delegates from the list to vote for. Click Vote. You can vote no more than 33 delegates once. Also remember about a fee of 1 LSK for each vote[/b]

Image
Image
Image

    — Open My Votes tab to check currently selected delegates. You can unvote any delegate at any time. Also remember that you can vote no more that for 101 delegates total

Image


4. TRY TO INCREASE YOUR RANKING AND GET INTO TOP 101

I believe that the first 101 active delegates will have the same amount of responsibility as Country Ambassadors: to secure the succes of Lisk platform wherever they are! Go Lisk !!! ;)
