Don't make this rookie mistake!

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!

💡  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.
