Panic: invalid Bech32 prefix; expected cosmos, got cosmosaccaddr


#1

Hello Cosmonauts!

I’m new and just started playing with the SDK. I’m trying to run a full node. I followed all the instructions here https://cosmos.network/docs/getting-started/full-node.html and get the following error:

panic: invalid Bech32 prefix; expected cosmos, got cosmosaccaddr

Any ideas what this is? I might be able to debug myself but don’t want to go down that rabbit hole right now.

Note I’m running on Mac 10:13:6

Here is the full error:

Having the same issue on ubuntu 16.04

Hey!

Essentially the genesis/application state will be invalid as different Bech32 prefixes are used. See my post here :+1:
