Setting up systemd

Then use the following commands to start, stop, restart, and view logs.
sudo systemctl start vinced
sudo systemctl status vinced
sudo systemctl enable vinced

Setting up wallet

Write down this command: vinced keys add --keyring-backend=file
It's for your wallet address and mnemonic phrase.

To check your balance

Enter the following command: vinced query bank balances --keyring-backend=file

Replacing validator name

Upon receiving the fund, you may replace your validator name with the receiver's VCE address.
The command line below used 1000000 VCE (equivalent to 1000000000000000000000000 avince or 10-18 vince) as example:
vinced tx staking create-validator --amount=1000000000000000000000000avince --pubkey=$(vinced tendermint show-validator) --moniker="<validatorname>" --from=<vincechain1address> --min-self-delegation="1" --commission-max-change-rate="0.01" --commission-max-rate="0.20" --commission-rate="0.05" --chain-id=vincechain_1000-3 --keyring-backend=file


If the keyring fails, you can recover it with: vinced keys add --recover
You may watch vinced logs with the following command: sudo journalctl -u vinced -f
