Create your validator

You need to add your wallet key using mnemonic or create a new key and tranfer uaura to its address

 aurad keys add <key_name> 

Your auravalconspub can be used to create a new validator by staking tokens. You can find your validator pubkey by running:

$ aurad tendermint show-validator

To create your validator, just use the following command:

$ aurad tx staking create-validator \
--amount=<staking-amount> \
--pubkey=$(aurad tendermint show-validator) \
--moniker="choose a moniker" \
--chain-id=<chain-id> \
--commission-rate="0.10" \
--commission-max-rate="0.20" \
--commission-max-change-rate="0.01" \
--min-self-delegation="1000000" \
--gas="auto" \
--gas-prices=<choose gas price> \
--from=<key_name>

You can confirm that you are in the validator set by using a third party explorer or aurad cli

aurad query staking validators
aurad query tendermint-validator-set
