Select Chains

Select the chains you would want activated on Community Chains. You can activate new chains anytime.

Update Your POKT Node's chains.json

After you have selected your chains, you will need to update your chains.json with the CC endpoints.

It is recommended that you always backup the original files before editing. PLEASE BACKUP A COPY OF YOUR chains.json BEFORE PROCEEDING.

Node Pilot Users BACKUP A COPY OF YOUR ~/.node-pilot/config FOLDER BEFORE PROCEEDING.

To get the CC endpoints for your chains.json, you can either:

  1. Copy each chain's endpoint with the Copy icon

  2. Download a new chains.json with the Download icon

After you have updated or replaced your chains.json, restart you POKT node.

Node Pilot Users

DO NOT EDIT THE chains.json LOCATED AT: ~/.node-pilot/config/chains.json ONLY EDIT THE chains.json LOCATED INSIDE OF YOUR POKT NODE'S FOLDER: ~/.node-pilot/config/nodes/pokt-000/config/chains.json

Update Stake

If you are adding new chains to your POKT nodes, you will need to do an new stake transaction to add those new chains to your stake.

Below is POKT staking command.

pocket nodes stake custodial <relay_chains> mainnet 10000 true

Node Pilot Users

Once you have updated the chains.json and done a Full Restart, wait until your POKT node has a status of "Running", and then click "Restake Node" to send a new stake transaction.

After a block has passed, then you can verify that your node is staked to all the right chains by checking the "Chains" section in Validator Info.
