  1. Here is a all you need to know on the technical level about Samsung's cryto enabling Keystore: https://developer.samsung.com/blockchain/keystore/understanding-sdk Elrond will be supported by the Samsung wallet, as a partnership has been announced.
  2. I think you send the binary payload as data on a transaction to an address with lots or all zeros. It should create a smart contract. Please correct me if I'm wrong, it's all I can remember on this topic, I haven't tried it myself.
  3. Yes, unfortunately you've missed the Second registration window and you'll have to wait for the Third, the dates will be announced soon.
  4. If this round another node of mine gets the top score/uptime, will this be added to the top score from previous round or to the exact node's score/uptime? Does an individual node identity matter for overall uptime/score/rewards? Or top score at the end end will be sum of personal top scores so far. Thanks
  5. If you're already in Round 1 and don't want to add more nodes, you don't have to submit this form!
  6. Awesome! I've started making a living as a validator:
  7. Contabo is by far the cheapest option, 9 euro per month for 6 cores, 16GB RAM, 400GB SSD, 400 Mbit/s port (unlimited traffic). I run 3 instances on it and the proposed block rate is not 100% successful. Those pushing the limits of their hardware will suffer! My advice is to make adjustments for the next waves and ditch the nodes you cannot run at decent performance. As more of us will migrate to Contabo, we'll be at the mercy of Contabo, they might not like our activity and they might impose limits, I hope it doesn't happen though. Most other similarly priced VPSs have a storage problem, max 50gb or so. If the activity is intense, the database will grow quite easily, take care of this aspect. It's not in anyone's interest to have dead nodes as the shard might get frozen without 2/3 active nodes. So keep your enemies close 🙂
  8. If you've registered this identity in the Battle of Nodes, the next release will enable you as validator.
  9. Offtopic: not so fast on that Bingo!
  10. Yep, generated pems are not copied in the node's config folder, I'm getting the same feedback and I was sending some people chasing green horses on the walls :)) Romanian saying
  11. Level 2, discover the possibilities:
  12. Nice catch, it should be https://t.me/ElrondValidators
  13. 💡 If you're running your node on Linux, on a remote machine, you can connect to it from Windows using WinSCP or MobaXterm and easily download your pem files.
  14. If you lose the *.pem files (aka your node's identity) where you found the public keys used to register for the Battle as a Validator, you're dead! At least you chance to get that perfect score is 😅 Make a habit of backing up these files, it's really not that hard. After you have a working node, you'll find them in the config folder that sits next to your node executable. My advice is to pack initialNodesSk.pem and initialBalancesSk.pem into a zip achive, setting up an optional password that you'll not forget, and store it on a different device or on a private file locker like Google Drive. You might need this to revive your original node in case of disaster. Inactive nodes will get pruned from the shard setup when a new Testnet version is released, so your goal should be to have your registered node running 24/7. Good luck!
  15. Let's continue the screenshot battle on a dedicated community thread and keep this thread educational! Thanks!!
