In order to interact with the system, you need a wallet. A wallet is a public key and a private mnemonic phrase. Keep your mnemonic phrase safe and secret.
You can do these steps while your node is syncing with the chain.
Creating Your Wallet
To create a wallet, you need to use the bandd CLI tool within the node container. Run the following: docker exec -it node bandd keys add YOUR_WALLET_NAME Make sure to replace YOUR_WALLET_NAME with the name you would like to give to your wallet. This name does not need to be unique on the chain, only within your node. The output of this command will look something like this:
**Important** write this mnemonic phrase in a safe place.
It is the only way to recover your account if you ever forget your password.

Save the value of address: by running ADDRESS=<your-wallet-address> (you will need to copy-paste the address: value output by the previous command. This will save it to your current shell session; you will need it later.
After you've created your wallet, you can bridge your mainnet tokens to Baldur testnet. To do this, Go to the website: testnet.odinprotocol.io
Log in to the web using your Mnemonic Phrase.
Connect your wallet using metamask and transfer Odin tokens to receive Loki's. This way you will also be participating in our 30k testnet program.
(1 ODIN = 10^6 Loki)
Checking Your Balance
Once you have created your wallet (regardless of whether you have any tokens in it, you can check your balance with the following command:
Set the amount of Loki tokens you want to stake with STAKE=<your-stake>loki should be approximately 200,000 loki less than the amount of Loki tokens you have in your wallet. The 200,000 remaining loki will be used for gas fees. For example, STAKE=10000000loki. Set the moniker (friendly name) for your validator node with MONIKER=<your-moniker>. This name is arbitrary and will be shown to all other users on the network.
