Can't stake tao to start validator Empty Can't stake tao to start validator

Sun Dec 04, 2022 4:09 pm
I tried setting up the validator on nobunaga to make sure my configuration is correct before I move to the main network. I regenerated with only the public key for security

I've registered a hotkey but when I run "btcli stake", it crashes with the following message:
"KeyFileError: Keyfile at: /root/.bittensor/wallets/<wallet name>/coldkey is not a file"

Any idea what the issue might be?

Can you verify the coldkey file exists? You need the coldkey private key to stake to a hotkey. If you regenerated the coldkey with only the public key, you won't have this file. Do a full regen and staking will work fine. You ca set up some sort of notification if my validator goes down by writing a script. Someone released a telegram bot to do it.
