How are you doing guys? Do you have any problems or questions?
Would be happy to guide you through the process of being validators on xDai if you have problems with setting up your node.

Hi guys, any feedback on it?
It’s ok if you changed your mind and decided not to be validators on xDai Stable Chain. Just let us know and we will create a ballots to remove your application.

Cool, please try again.

I’m following the directions on getting the xDai Validator setup : 3: New xDai Validator: After you have been approved as a Validator

I’m at the part of the instructions where it is asking for :

  • NETSTATS_SERVER - ask one of existing validators (e.g. POA) to provide you with correct url of the netstats server
  • NETSTATS_SECRET - ask one of existing validators (e.g. POA) to share the netstats secret code with you. Do not share it with non-validators or people outside of xDai network
  • MINING_KEYFILE - insert content of your mining keystore file here, enclosed in single brackets. The result should look similar to this:

I have two questions :

  1. Who can I go to ask for url of netstats server and netstats secret code?

  2. What is the MINING_KEYFILE?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


  • I’ve DMed you about the netstats server/secret
  • MINING_KEYFILE is content of json keystore file for your mining key (0xa1c3eb21cd44f0433c6be936ad84d20b70b564d3)
