PoS Registration Tutorial (Conflux PoS Testnet 10th Round Public Test)

PoS Registration Tutorial

1. Password setting

We need to set the password when starting the node for the first time. This password is used to encrypt the private key of PoS. Enter the password and confirm it when you see the content on the screen as below:

PoS key is not detected and will be generated instead, please input your encryption password. This password is needed when you restart the node
Repeat Password:

2. PoS Registration

Right-click the “Start” icon on the left corner of your screen and then press “Windows PowerShell”;

Copy the directory path of the run directory using right-click. Enter cd + space + the directory path you copied in Powershell.

And then run the command:

./conflux rpc local pos register --power 1

The first returned value is the data field requied when registering for PoS transactions. The second returned value is the address of the PoS account.
