Hi, everyone!

Last week some technical updates have been introduced to the testnet. We issue a new set of instructions on the testnet participation. The Gravity Team takes a serious view on information support of the project. If you have any questions which are not presented in the instructions, please leave them in the comments.

  • Vote for Gravity Protocol Committee Members

Update Gravity Protocol node

  • First, we’ll go to the node’s directory cd gravity-testnet-docker
  • Here we’ll stop our node sudo docker-compose down
  • Then we’ll receive the update from github git pull origin and new versions of packages from Dockerhub sudo docker-compose pull
  • Now we’ll run the node in daemon mode sudo docker-compose up -d
  • If you prefer, you can display current sync status on the screen sudo docker-compose logs --tail 10 -f
  • To hide the logs, press Ctrl+Z.

Resync Gravity Protocol node

  • First we’ll go to the node’s directory cd gravity-testnet-docker
  • Here we’ll stop our node sudo docker-compose down
  • And run it again sudo docker-compose up -d
  • If you prefer, you can display current sync status on the screen sudo docker-compose logs --tail 10 -f
  • To hide the logs, press Ctrl+Z.

Edit the blockchain configuration

  • First we’ll go to the node’s directory and open cli-wallet when the node is launched.
  • Then we’ll unlock the wallet. And now we’ll get to work.
  • We’ll get current configuration values. We’ll make a proposal to change the maximum asset feed publishers.
  • Now we’ll get the number of proposal id.
  • And we’ll vote.
  • Now we’ll close the cli-wallet using Ctrl+C
  • As you can see, we've created a configuration change proposal and voted for it.

Find our account’s private keys

  • First, we’ll open the “Keys” tab.
  • Then we’ll enter the password to bin-file.
  • After that, we’ll press “Show keys”.
  • There are two owner keys and two active keys. Each pair has one public key. Your public key starts with ZGV, and your private key starts with “5”.
    *Just left-click on one of them to copy.

Vote for Gravity Protocol witnesses

  • First, go to the “Voting” tab on the left.
  • Here we see a list of accounts who want to become witnesses. As you can see, some of them are active now, some are not.
  • There are some links in the “About” column. They mostly lead to articles, where people describe why they want to become a witness.
  • We can select up to 30 accounts we want to support. Our voting power is not affected by the amount of accounts we choose to support.
  • After the selections have been made, we’ll click “Vote”.
  • After that, we’ll enter the password to the bin-file.
  • And we’ll press “Vote” again.
  • So we’ve successfully supported our selected witnesses.

Vote for Gravity Protocol Committee Members

  • Go to the “Voting” tab on the left.
  • Then select the “Committee” tab above.
  • Here we see a list of accounts who want to become committee members. Some of them are active now, some are not.
  • There are some links in the “About” column. They mostly lead to articles, where people describe why they want to become a committee member.
  • We can select up to 30 accounts we want to support. Our voting power is not affected by the amount of accounts we choose to support.
  • After the selections have been made, we’ll click “Vote”.
  • Now enter the password to the bin-file.
  • We’ll click “Vote” again.
  • So we’ve successfully supported our selected committee members.

Gravity protocol’s proxy

  • First, we’ll open the “Voting” tab.
  • Here we see tabs containing witnesses and committee members.
  • If for example, we don’t have much time to figure out which of them are worth our support, and which are not...
    the proxys are here to help us.
  • Proxy is an account to which we can delegate our voting power. However, it doesn’t have access to our wallet or our tokens.
  • All we have to do now is select an account to which we’ll delegate the vote.
  • After that, we’ll insert the chosen account’s ID to a “Set proxy” line and press “Delegate”.
  • Here is where we’ll fill in our bin-file password and press “Yes, I agree”.
  • Please note: after setting the proxy you won’t be able to vote personally.
  • If instead you decide that you want to vote in person, you can always press “Cancel proxy”. And then press “Yes, I agree”.

Change a node in the Gravity Protocol wallet

  • By default, the set node will be the one with the lowest ping. But if for whatever reason it doesn’t suit you, you can always change it.
  • You can access the selection of nodes in two ways.
  • The first way is to press the block number and then “Advanced settings”.
  • The second way is to press “Settings” and go to the nodes tab. Here we need to turn off automatic node selection.
  • After that, we’ll press the “Switch node” button in front of the node we’ve chosen.
  • In the future it will be possible to add random nodes here as well.

Backup copy of a bin-file

  • To make it, we’ll first go to “Settings”.
  • Then we’ll select the “Backup” tab and press “Create backup now”.
  • Here we’ll enter the bin-file password and press “Download”.
  • As you can see, a backup file has been saved to the download folder.
  • Now we’ll need to move it to a more secure place. That’s it!

Brainkey backup copy of your Gravity wallet

  • You may need this backup if for some reason you only have a bin-file.
  • First, we’ll go to “Settings”.
  • Then we’ll select the “Backup” tab.
  • Here we’ll enter the bin-file password below the “Brainkey” sign.
  • And then we’ll press “Show”.
  • After that we’ll copy the Brainkey to a safe file.

Enjoy Gravity!
