How to add info, e.g. url and avatar, to validator for display in explorer

Run a command that looks like this -

gaiacli stake edit-validator
–moniker=“Nylira Validator”
–details="Peng Zhong "

$MYKEY is a key from gaiacli keys list you use to fund your validator.

A bug for this was found. Just in case if anyone cannot update the validator a second time.

How can add avatar for my validator? I see that some of them have it in block explorer, but there is no --avatar param in the latest release.

You can create a PGP key on and update your validator with flag --keybase-sig, which is what the first post here is suggesting.

–keybase-sig has been deprecated. Now the flag is --identity

Oh yes. Checked the command. It’s --identity now. Thanks for the update.
