Conflux PoS Testnet 3rd Round Public Test Tutorial
Start Time: Oct.20 18:00(GMT+8)
- Start fullnode running at around Oct.20 18:00.
- The PoS registration will start at Blocknumber 129600 (around Oct.21 12:00).
- The PoS registration will close at Blocknumber 302400 (around Oct.22 12:00).
- After registration closes, you can start adding pos_config. The deadline for adding pos_config is at Blockheight 345000 (around Oct.23 18:00).
- The time point to upgrade hardfork to the network is at Blockheight 345000 (around Oct.23 18:00)
- This round of test ends at Oct.29 12:00
Note: The logic of contract execution layer uses the Blocknumber as the activation time, and the logic of consensus layer uses the Blockheight as the activation time.

Q1: If I accidentally delete the
pos_key file under
pos_config folder, what should I do?
A1: You shold not delele the file
pos_key. If you deleted it, you need to reconnect and withdraw the staking. You need to wait for 9 hours for the CFX to be unlocked and then re-register. We suggest you to skip the wait and using a new Chrome account to test.
Q2: The program has stuck for more than 20 minutes, what should I do?
A2：Restart your program.
Q3: What should I do if the transaction failed when approving the locking CFX transaction while succeeded when approving staking CFX transaction
A3: Go to Conflux portal->account profile->settings->advanced, look for the “custom nonce” and turn it on. When you turn on the “custom nounce”, each time when you need to approve for a transaction, a textbox will pop-up and ask you to enter a nounce. Enter nounce each time when you are asked.
Q4: Where can I report bugs during testing?
log folder to a Google Drive folder, and share the link with Cike in Discord.
Q5: What should I be cautious about when I restart the node?
A5: Enter the same password you set in the first time and you should be fine:
PoS key detected, please input your encryption password. Password:
