As a validator (Protofire.io) I would love to see Portis become a new validator. Count with us to publish the ballot for voting. Just follow the instruction Mr @Ziggy shared.

Thanks Igor!

I’m getting an “Invalid voting key” error on https://validators.poa.network/poa-dapps-validators/set.

I’m on the correct chain and using the validator account.

Please confirm that you are on xDai Network in Metamask and you have 0xeb43574E8f4FDdF11FBAf65A8632CA92262A1266 key selected

Also, let’s skip the step because I think your ballot should be finalized before you can sign metadata for yourself (please confirm that @varasev).
Let’s install your node, after we will finalize the ballot and you will set you metadata.

Correct, a Validator does not become active until after ballot finalization, so voting key will be rejected until such time as activation is complete.

Right. The ballot must be finalized for the voting key to become active.

@radotzki friendly ping

@igorbarinov I confirm that I’m on xDai network and using this key:

I saw you updated the guide. I’m currently on vacation, I’ll set up everything next week :slight_smile:

Done. We have a validator up and running :tada:


Great, I’ve finalized the ballot and I see your validator creating blocks.

@Ziggy please tweet about it and update corresponding posts with a list of validators


Great news. I was on a sick leave and missed the notifications. It is good we have a good voting setup.

@radotzki Please add Portis metadata here (Set Metadata)

It will be displayed in BlockScout. Now it’s just the address
