Tezos baking howto

This howto is valid for Betanet on Ubuntu or Debian

Setup

Prereq

You have to install some dependencies. In debian / ubuntu run:

sudo apt-get install build-essential git m4 unzip rsync curl libev-dev libgmp-dev pkg-config libhidapi-dev

If you are using ubuntu, install bubblewrap using this deb file:

wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/bubblewrap/bubblewrap_0.2.1-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i ./bubblewrap_0.2.1-1_amd64.deb

If you are using debian, install bubblewrap using the apt-get:

sudo apt-get install bubblewrap

Create an user and switch to it:

adduser tezos
adduser tezos sudo
su - tezos

Install the node from sources

Checkout the code:

git clone https://gitlab.com/tezos/tezos.git
cd tezos
git checkout mainnet

Install Opam (version 2.0 is required):

wget https://github.com/ocaml/opam/releases/download/2.0.0-rc4/opam-2.0.0-rc4-x86_64-linux
sudo mv opam-2.0.0-rc4-x86_64-linux /usr/local/bin/opam
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/opam
opam init --comp=4.06.1 --disable-sandboxing
opam switch 4.06.1
opam update
eval $(opam env)

Update Opam (if you have already installed opam):

opam update
opam switch 4.06.1 # Run this only if you are not already using 4.06.1 ocaml version
eval $(opam env)

Then compile the tezos node:

opam depext
eval $(opam env)
make build-deps
eval $(opam env)
make

Update the node

git pull
make build-deps
make

If it fails:

opam update
opam pin list -s | xargs opam pin remove
make build-deps
make

Update the node to new protocol

eval $(opam env) && make clean && git pull && make clean && make build-deps && eval $(opam env) && make
git rev-parse HEAD
./tezos-node upgrade storage
wget http://quicksync.tzdutch.com/mainnet-BMKkyoQRCUHh2nLxZE4o6q3ExQDeGntNsdMKTbzq6gEXRg6HguV.full.tar.lz4
sudo apt-get install liblz4-tool -y
lz4 -d mainnet-BMKkyoQRCUHh2nLxZE4o6q3ExQDeGntNsdMKTbzq6gEXRg6HguV.full.tar.lz4 | tar xf -
rm -r ~/.tezos-node
./tezos-node snapshot import mainnet-BMKkyoQRCUHh2nLxZE4o6q3ExQDeGntNsdMKTbzq6gEXRg6HguV.full
./tezos-node identity generate 26

Node configuration

First generate a new identity and setup config:

./tezos-node identity generate

Start the node

cd tezos
nohup ./tezos-node run --rpc-addr 127.0.0.1:8732 --connections 20 &

Redeem your contribution (only betanet/mainnet)

First, activate your account using the kyc code:

./tezos-client add address fundraiser <tz1...>
./tezos-client activate fundraiser account fundraiser with <activation_key>

You can check if the account has been activated by getting its balance:

./tezos-client get balance for fundraiser

Then in order to access your funds importing your private key type the following command and write your private data when asked:

./tezos-client import fundraiser secret key "my_account"

Please be careful, you are importing your tezos private keys!

Baking

Register a delegate

Register a new delegate:

./tezos-client register key "my_account" as delegate

Start the baker

Use screen to start the baker and run it in background; it will ask you for the encryption key.

cd tezos
./tezos-baker-005-PsBabyM1 run with local node "/home/tezos/.tezos-node" "my_account"
cd tezos
./tezos-endorser-005-PsBabyM1 run "my_account"
cd tezos
./tezos-accuser-005-PsBabyM1 run

Voting

If you don't want to bake, you can vote another delegate. To vote a delegate, you should first "originate an account"; consider the implicit account called my_account2 with 6900XTZ, delegating to my_account:

./tezos-client originate account "my_originated" for "my_account2" transferring 6900 from "my_account2" --delegate "my_account" --delegatable

If you already have an originated account, you can delegate running:

./tezos-client set delegate for "my_originated" to "my_account"

Backup your keys

You private keys are located in:

  • /home/tezos/.tezos-node/identity.json
  • /home/tezos/.tezos-client/secret_keys.json
