Transfer funds with CLI

The section provides a tutorial on how to use cored cli. You can follow this flow with any other cli command.

Note: we are going to use testnet for this example.

export CORED_NODE= 

If you want to target other network than testnet, replace it with values at network variables page

  • To check verify that everything is set correctly, you can run cored status | jq and check network name. If you don't have jq installed you can run cored status, but we strongly recommend using this awesome tool 😃

  • You should have funded account. If you don't have it, do next:

    • Go to faucet page and click Generate Funded Wallet.
    • Copy Wallet Mnemonic and go to your terminal and run:
    cored keys add my-sender-wallet --recover
    # Where `my-sender-wallet` is your local account name. It will be used later.
    • Enter your mnemonic. Now you imported account into your local machine!
    • Store the mnemonic in safe place, this is the only way to recover your account.
  • Transfer funds. Let's go step by step, --help command will lead us through:

    • Let's check available commands for cored:

      cored --help
    • Sending funds changes the state of the network, so this is a transaction. Let's check modules that has own transactions:

      cored tx --help
    • bank module is responsible for transferring funds:

      cored tx bank --help
    • There is only one available command called send. Let's check its usage:

      cored tx bank send --help
      # output:
      # cored tx bank send [from_key_or_address] [to_address] [amount] [flags]
    • Full command should look like this:

      cored tx bank send my-sender-wallet testcore1snn05vrzvnwy7t0g00rr7hva63hmwxuuv7nrj0 1000000utestcore
      # my-sender-wallet is your local account name, which can be replaced by an address.
      # 1000000utestcore is equal to 1testcore
    • If the output code is 0, get the transaction hash, go to Block Explorer and put it into the search line.

      If output code is not 0, your transaction failed local validation and was not broadcasted. Fix the problem and run the command again.

Send staking tx with CLI

  • To stake your tokens with CLI you should use staking module. Let's check available commands:

    cored tx staking --help
    # create-validator create new validator initialized with a self-delegation to it
    # delegate         Delegate liquid tokens to a validator
    # edit-validator   edit an existing validator account
    # redelegate       Redelegate illiquid tokens from one validator to another
    # unbond           Unbond shares from a validator
  • Let's delegate some tokens:

    # cored tx staking delegate [validator-addr] [amount] --from [delegator-addr] [flags]
    cored tx staking delegate testcorevaloper14x4ux30sadvg90k2xd8fte5vnhhh0uvkxf4rgm 1000000utestcore --from testcore1q07ldrjnr8xtsy3rz82yxqcdrffu3uw3daslrw
    # 1000000utestcore is equal to 1testcore
