Gaia-9002 planning thread

Hi all,

We are starting planning for gaia-9002.

All of the required fixes have been merged.

We are still waiting for a Tendermint release before we can launch.

I am going to try and merge together the exported gaia-9001 state and accounts for the GoS participants into the launch state.

This means if you were validating on gaia-9001 we need to you to upgrade to bring gaia-9002 online.

We wills start the 48 hour warning for Game of Stakes once gaia-9002 launches.


Great news. Thanks for the update and all the hard work.
Cant wait


Can we have two days warning before gaia-9002 launches the same way we did in the past? That way it’s easier to prepare :slight_smile:

Great to hear !
GoS is starting soon.

Glad to hear that, thanks for all your hard work!

Quick update on what’s happening.

The final binaries for 9002 are almost ready.

I am building a gaia-9002 genesis file now.

We are going to do a centralized start again to mirror the Game of Stakes start as much ass possible.

I building the gaia-9002 account state to include both game of stakes participants and previous testnet participants.

That should be done in the next couple hours.


Hello, I am more worried about whether my account will be in the genesis of 9002, before in gos, but not in 9001.

cd .gaiad/data/
rm -rf *

gaiad start should work again;)

or just dont forget to do an: gaiad unsafe-reset-all :wink:

In case of this error:

Remember to get the raw genesis file (not the web page…) :grinning:


So Gaia-9002 is live, but LCD is still not working?

‘expected chainid gaia-9001, got gaia-9002’

yeah the public lcd endpoint isn’t alive.

Hello, may I ask if the cosmos tap can be used?

The faucet isn’t working at the moment and I am not sure I have time to make it work in next few days but our intent to is to have a working faucet on a testnet shortly.

Will discuss with the team

Thank you very much for your reply. I think if I don’t have a tap, how do I join the certifier?

Ask someone in the Riot chat to send you STAKE

Ok, thank you, let me go to riot and give it a try.

image Excuse me, that is my address…

the address for token can be seen by “gaiacli keys list”. it starts as “cosmos1…”
also it is better to ask it in riot chat

I have a problem, my publickey is obtained with gaiad tendermint show-validator, the file priv_validator.json has not changed, create a validator or report an error.
