Joining Testnet

After installing canined. You can join the testnet by following these steps:

canined init <alias> --chain-id=<chain-id>

chain-id for testnet is currently lupulella-2.

Then we want to replace our generated genesis file with the one used to start the network. We also need to set our peers and seeds.

For an updated list of peers & seeds, please check this page.

wget -O ~/.canine/config/genesis.json

export SEEDS="84f520678ef59ea02f942fa6323ec562ca5a3249@,cecc087977336da1e9ccd2c50097cd9e7d5e1874@"
sed -i.bak -e "s/^seeds *=.*/seeds = \"$SEEDS\"/" ~/.canine/config/config.toml

As a validator, you'll need to set a minimum gas price like so:

sed -i.bak -e "s/^minimum-gas-prices *=.*/minimum-gas-prices = \"$GAS\"/" $HOME/.canine/config/app.toml
