Create a Wallet with Celestia App
For this guide, we will go over how you can generate a Celestia
Note, you do not need to install Celestia Node for this tutorial.
Create a Wallet
First, create an application CLI configuration file:
celestia-appd config keyring-backend test
You can pick whatever wallet name you want. For our example we used "validator" as the wallet name:
celestia-appd keys add validator
Save the mnemonic output as this is the only way to recover your validator wallet in case you lose it!
To check all your wallets you can run:
celestia-appd keys list
Fund a Wallet
For the public celestia address, you can fund the previously created wallet via Discord by sending this message to #arabica-faucet channel:
Wait to see if you get a confirmation that the tokens have been successfully sent. To check if tokens have arrived successfully to the destination wallet run the command below replacing the public address with your own:
celestia-appd query bank balances celestia1xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
