Skywire Whitelisting System

Table of Contents

Usage of the Skywire Whitelisting System is required to be eligible for testnet rewards.

Introduction

We are happy to announce the new Skywire account system which will be used to upgrade the whitelisting & data management procedures of the Skywire testnet.

Previous data records were imported into the new system but you are advised to double check the data in the system. Important note for people that had a DIY miner and an official miner in the old mikecrm system: you will only get to keep one reward address in this new system. Please verify the imported Skycoin wallet address and change it if necessary.

Everyone using the system must first create a user account. You can access the signup form by following this link

Please note that there are two different websites you'll have to use:

Once you verified your account via email you can use the new system with all it's advantages:

  • you can change your Skycoin wallet address at will
  • you can change the public keys associated with a miner as it becomes necessary
  • you can upgrade whitelisted miner and add more boards to them
  • you can review the pictures associated with your miners last but not least
  • you can submit new applications and review your application status & receive email notifications
  • and more features to come

One last reminder for everyone to join the Skywire PSA channel on telegram if you're not already a member.

Application DISABLED

In case your application was DISABLED you won't see an empty whitelist application form in the system. You have to check your emails to see the information about your DISABLED application. Once an application was DISABLED it's the best practise to contact support@skycoin.net if you want to further discuss your issue and attempt to resolve it.

User accounts that had one of their applications DISABLED is still free to open further applications. Only serious rule violations and misdeeds will lead to having your account disabled/miner deleted.


Auto-Application Creation

Any open application will be put in the background and on hold until the automated application was approved by an admin. Once that's done your previously open application will be restored into it's previous state.

If you surpass the amount of whitelisted public keys associated with your miner by adjusting its public keys on the 'Miner overview' page, then it will automatically fill in the info for a new application with the additional public key(s) and submit it for you.

The automated application will submit the public key automatically. However, you do have to select new pictures that display the adjustments on your miner and update the application manually once more.

The previous version of the miner remains active and ready to receive rewards without the additional public keys. Simply exchanging your currently submitted public keys does not trigger this action to be performed.

The amount of whitelisted public keys associated with the miner is being surpassed: whitelisting_miner_amount_surpassed

  • Add an additional board to your miner by adding another public key.
  • Click on 'Submit' once you're done.
