Konstellation is the blockchain built using the Cosmos SDK. Konstellation will be interact with other sovereign blockchains using a protocol called IBC that enables Inter-Blockchain Communication.

Konstellation network

Mainnet Full Node Quick Start

With each version of the Konstellation Hub, the chain is restarted from a new Genesis state. We are currently on darchub.

Get mainnet config here

- Hardware requirements 
CPU: 4 core
RAM: 16 GB 
DISK Storage: SSD 500 GB

Build from code

This assumes that you're running Linux or MacOS and have installed Go 1.17+. This guide helps you:

Build, Install, and Name your Node

Current first you must sync from v4.3.0

# Clone Konstellation from the latest release found here:
git clone -b v0.4.3
# Enter the folder Konstellation was cloned into
cd konstellation
# Compile and install Konstellation
make build
# Check konstellation version
build/knstld version

To join mainnet follow this steps

Initialize data and folders

build/knstld unsafe-reset-all

Genesis & Seeds

Download genesis.json

wget -O $HOME/.knstld/config/genesis.json

Download config.toml with predefined seeds and persistent peers

wget -O $HOME/.knstld/config/config.toml

Alternatively enter persistent peers to config.toml provided here

  1. Open ~/.knstld/config/config.toml with text editor. Alternatively you can use cli editor, like nano nano ~/.knstld/config/config.toml
  2. Scroll down to persistant peers in config.toml, and add the persistant peers as a comma-separated list

Setting Up a New Node

You can edit this moniker, in the ~/.knstld/config/config.toml file:

# A custom human readable name for this node
moniker = "<your_custom_moniker>"

You can edit the ~/.knstld/config/app.toml file in order to enable the anti spam mechanism and reject incoming transactions with less than the minimum gas prices:

# This is a TOML config file.
# For more information, see
##### main base config options #####
# The minimum gas prices a validator is willing to accept for processing a
# transaction. A transaction's fees must meet the minimum of any denomination
# specified in this config (e.g. 10udarc).
minimum-gas-prices = ""

Your full node has been initialized!

Run a full node

# Start Konstellation
build/knstld start
# to run process in background run
screen -dmSL knstld build/knstld start
# Check your node's status with konstellation cli
build/knstld status

Wait for the konstellation block synchroniztion complete

Block 1826999

At block 1826999 chain will halt, this is the upgrade requirement block. You will get an error

INF committed state app_hash=76B4066182CB3D3E984E09CB5226FD9734F0DFB91EA25AC4CFAC326D26E8D346 height=1826999 module=state num_txs=0
ERR UPGRADE "v0.44" NEEDED at height: 1827000:
INF indexed block height=1826999 module=txindex
UPGRADE "v0.44" NEEDED at height: 1827000:

This indicates the next steps are ready and you must upgrade the chain.

Change git release branch v0.5.0

git checkout v0.5.0

Compile and install Konstellation

make build

Check konstellation version

build/knstld version Should return 0.5.0

Start Konstellation

build/knstld start

Again to run process in background run

screen -dmSL knstld build/knstld start

Create a key

Add new

build/knstld keys add <key_name>

Or import via mnemonic

build/knstld keys add <key_name> -i

As a result, you got

- name: <key_name>
  type: local
  address: <key_address>
  pubkey: <key_pubkey>
  mnemonic: ""
  threshold: 0
  pubkeys: []
**Important** write this mnemonic phrase in a safe place.
It is the only way to recover your account if you ever forget your password.

To become a validator follow this steps

Before setting up your validator node, make sure you've already gone through the Full Node Setup

What is a Validator?

Validators are responsible for committing new blocks to the blockchain through voting. A validator's stake is slashed if they become unavailable or sign blocks at the same height. Please read about Sentry Node Architecture to protect your node from DDOS attacks and to ensure high-availability.

Create Your Validator

Your darcvalconspub can be used to create a new validator by staking tokens. You can find your validator pubkey by running:

build/knstld tendermint show-validator

To create your validator, just use the following command:

Check if your key(address) has enough balance:

build/knstld query bank balances <key address>

For test nodes, chain-id is darchub.
You need transction fee 2udarc to make your transaction for creating validator.
Don't use more udarc than you have!

build/knstld tx staking create-validator \
  --amount=1000000udarc \
  --pubkey=$(build/knstld tendermint show-validator) \
  --moniker=<choose a moniker> \
  --chain-id=<chain_id> \
  --commission-rate="0.10" \
  --commission-max-rate="0.20" \
  --commission-max-change-rate="0.01" \
  --min-self-delegation="1" \
  --from=<key_name> \
  • NOTE: If you have troubles with '\' symbol, run the command in a single line like build/knstld tx staking create-validator --amount=1000000udarc --pubkey=$(build/knstld tendermint show-validator) ...

When specifying commission parameters, the commission-max-change-rate is used to measure % point change over the commission-rate. E.g. 1% to 2% is a 100% rate increase, but only 1 percentage point.

Min-self-delegation is a strictly positive integer that represents the minimum amount of self-delegated voting power your validator must always have. A min-self-delegation of 1 means your validator will never have a self-delegation lower than 1000000udarc

You can check that you are in the validator set by using a third party explorer or using cli tool

build/knstld query staking validators --chain-id=<chain_id>
  • Note: You can edit the params after, by running command build/knstld tx staking edit-validator ... —from <key_name> --chain-id=<chain_id> --fees=2udarc with the necessary options

How to init chain

Add key to your keyring build/knstld keys add <key name>

Initialize genesis and config files. build/knstld init <moniker> --chain-id <chain id>

Replace all denoms stake to udarc in genesis.json

Add genesis account build/knstld add-genesis-account <key name> 200000000000udarc - 200000darc

Create genesis transaction build/knstld gentx <key name> 100000000000udarc --chain-id <chain id> - create CreateValidator transaction

Collect all of gentxs build/knstld collect-gentxs

Run network build/knstld start
