Restore A Validator

A validator can be completely restored on a new XPLA Chain node with the following set of keys:

  • The Consensus key, stored in ~/.xpla/config/priv_validator.json
  • The mnemonic to the validator wallet

To Restore a Validator:

  1. Setup a full XPLA Chain node synced up to the latest block.
  2. Replace the ~/.xpla/config/priv_validator.json file of the new node with the associated file from the old node, then restart your node.
