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 --interactive
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 either the #mocha-faucet or #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
