Looking for new testnet participants made from mainnet ledger

  1. Purpose
  • to test export/migrate functionality
  • to test new binary with real mainnet ledger
  1. Procedure to participate
  • please reply this post with below items
    • valconspub(newly made only for testnet, can be multiple)
    • number of validator to run:you can run multiple validator if you want
    • contact point(telegram handle): also can dm me.
    • idea for chain-id
  1. Methodology
  • export at certain height
  • replace top validator valconspub to our participants’ new valconspub
  • we need at least 18 validators, but I think at least 25 is necessary for safe launch with some absent
  • migrate to new genesis file
  • compare hash and launch!

Launch will be tried right after we have adaquate gaia version including fixed migrate function.

  • How to create new valconspub :

You may want to generate a new pubkey locally offline. Just run gaiad tendermint show-validator will do. If you have a new built gaiad and there is no .gaiad directory in your home, the command will generate a new directory with the priv_validator_key.json. If you want to run multiple nodes, you may backup and move the priv_validator_key.json to another place, then run gaiad tendermint show-validator again. It will generate a new key file.

I believe this is crucial to plan and go ahead with. Thanks for initiating this!

A good idea, after learning and going through it for the first time now, is for us to outline this process in the upgrade proposal so as to be a defined test procedure for the upgrade.

I want to thank you for the initiative, and others validators that want help. But.
IMO The correct way is to kill the current testnet 13006, and start a new testnet aka gaia-13007 for the simulations.

Im ready for that.

Although setting up another gaia testnet is a way to test, forking the mainnet would be a better testing environment to really test the real upgrade on the Cosmos Hub.

I dont want to give validators burden to run this testnet for long time, so I guess I want to stop running this testnet after we feel the launch is successful, running about less than a week.

This is my intention of this testnet(it is mostly for testing upgrade procedure).

Option A= Fork cosmos and launch cosmos hub 3 meanwhile is running cosmos hub2.

Option B= kill 13006, start 13007 simulate there .

Option C= Run this testnet where some validators manage more validators. (unreal scenery)

I’m for the option A or B, I don’t see the option C.
