The Humanode Testnet 4 "Gaghiel" is here and open for public.
Get the latest launcher version from the new download location:
You should now be able to run the launcher.
During the workspace creation process, it will prompt you on what chain to install. Choose Testnet 4!
- 2 CPU Cores
- 4 GB RAM
- 40 GB disk space
- 100 Mbps internet connection
- Public IP address or ports forwarded in NAT (and
ngrok-like or Humanode WebSocket Tunnel)
Before you can proceed, you have to generate a mnemonic and insert it into the node and into the wallet of your choosing.
Use the launcher to generate and insert the mnemonic into the node.
You can get the polkadot.js browser extension from here:
Import your mnemonic as a key into the polkadot.js extension.
First, open the extension.
Then, press on the
button at the menu:
Press on +
Press on "Import accounts from pre-existing keys":
Follow the dialog to import the key.
In the end, you should see the address that corresponds to your validator key. Use this address when getting the tokens from the faucet.
At Testnet 4 we are testing the Token Claims system that we will be using to distribute the tokens after the public sale!
If you have participated in the previous testnets, and you have mapped your addresses to an Ethereum address for the Public Sale you will have some tokens allocated for you in this testnet's genesis.
Go to the Testnet 4 Token Claims page and see how token claiming system will work after the public sale:
You can check your balance after you've claimed the tokens via the Polkadot.js apps:
Navigate to the "Accounts" tab, and press on your account to see the details:
As you can see in this example, your balance has the tokens, and some of them are locked.
You can trigger tokens unlock (Developer -> Extrinsics -> select
unlock()) - this call recomputes the locks according to the vesting schedule and relocks your balance, typically locking fewer and fewer tokens as the time passes (depending on the schedule). Note that
unlock()requires fee payment.
In the Testnet 4, you need to go through the following steps to become a validator:
- 1.Enroll with the network - do this from your phone after scanning the QR code;
- 3.Rotate and set the node keys - again, this is done from the phone;
- 4.Authenticate - from the phone again.
After all these steps, you should be able to see yourself in the list of validators.
Check the explorer to see if you managed to complete all the steps and have become a validator.
Use the explorer:
There, navigate to Developer -> Chain state ->
validators(). Press + on the right.
Now you have become a validator!
Don't see yourself on the list? Wait for two sessions to pass (one session in 10 minutes) and check again.
