How To Install Full Node Pointnetwork Mainnet

Setting up vars

Your Nodename (validator) that will shows in explorer


Save variables to system

echo "export NODENAME=$NODENAME" >> $HOME/.bash_profile
if [ ! $WALLET ]; then
    echo "export WALLET=wallet" >> $HOME/.bash_profile
echo "export POINT_CHAIN_ID=point_10687-1" >> $HOME/.bash_profile
source $HOME/.bash_profile

Update packages

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

Install dependencies

sudo apt install curl build-essential git wget jq make gcc tmux net-tools ccze -y

Install go

if ! [ -x "$(command -v go)" ]; then
  cd $HOME
  wget "$ver.linux-amd64.tar.gz"
  sudo rm -rf /usr/local/go
  sudo tar -C /usr/local -xzf "go$ver.linux-amd64.tar.gz"
  rm "go$ver.linux-amd64.tar.gz"
  echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin:$HOME/go/bin" >> ~/.bash_profile
  source ~/.bash_profile

Download and build binaries

cd $HOME
git clone
cd point-chain
git checkout mainnet
make install

Config app

pointd config chain-id $POINT_CHAIN_ID

Init app

pointd init $NODENAME --chain-id $POINT_CHAIN_ID

Download configuration

wget -O $HOME/.pointd/config/genesis.json ""
wget -O $HOME/.pointd/config/config.toml

Set seeds and peers

PEERS='curl -s'
sed -i.bak -e "s/^persistent_peers *=.*/persistent_peers = \"$PEERS\"/" $HOME/.pointd/config/config.toml

Disable indexing

indexer="null" && \
sed -i -e "s/^indexer *=.*/indexer = \"$indexer\"/" $HOME/.pointd/config/config.toml

Config pruning

sed -i -e "s/^pruning *=.*/pruning = \"$pruning\"/" $HOME/.pointd/config/app.toml
sed -i -e "s/^pruning-keep-recent *=.*/pruning-keep-recent = \"$pruning_keep_recent\"/" $HOME/.pointd/config/app.toml
sed -i -e "s/^pruning-keep-every *=.*/pruning-keep-every = \"$pruning_keep_every\"/" $HOME/.pointd/config/app.toml
sed -i -e "s/^pruning-interval *=.*/pruning-interval = \"$pruning_interval\"/" $HOME/.pointd/config/app.toml

Create service

sudo tee /etc/systemd/system/pointd.service > /dev/null <<EOF

ExecStart=$(which pointd) start --home $HOME/.pointd


Register and start service

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable pointd
sudo systemctl restart pointdd && sudo journalctl -u pointd -f -o cat

Guidence for create validator

Create wallet

To create new wallet you can use command below. Don’t forget to save the mnemonic

pointd keys add $WALLET

To recover your wallet using seed phrase

pointd keys add $WALLET --recover

Show your wallet list

pointd keys list

Save wallet info

Add wallet and validator address into variables

POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS=$(pointd keys show $WALLET -a)
POINT_VALOPER_ADDRESS=$(pointd keys show $WALLET --bech val -a)
echo 'export POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS='${POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS} >> $HOME/.bash_profile
source $HOME/.bash_profile

Fund your wallet

In order to create validator first you need to fund your wallet with buy point token.

Buy point on MEXC

Create validator

check your wallet balance:

pointd query bank balances $POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS

To create your validator run command below

pointd tx staking create-validator \
  --amount 1000000000000000000000apoint \
  --from $WALLET \
  --commission-max-change-rate "0.1" \
  --commission-max-rate "0.2" \
  --commission-rate "0.1" \
  --min-self-delegation "1" \
  --pubkey  $(pointd tendermint show-validator) \
  --moniker $NODENAME \
  --chain-id $POINT_CHAIN_ID \
  --gas="400000" \
  --gas-prices="0.025apoint" \

Check your validator key

[[ $(pointd q staking validator $POINT_VALOPER_ADDRESS -oj | jq -r .consensus_pubkey.key) = $(pointd status | jq -r .ValidatorInfo.PubKey.value) ]] && echo -e "\n\e[1m\e[32mTrue\e[0m\n" || echo -e "\n\e[1m\e[31mFalse\e[0m\n"

Get list of validators

pointd q staking validators -oj --limit=3000 | jq '.validators[] | select(.status=="BOND_STATUS_BONDED")' | jq -r '(.tokens|tonumber/pow(10; 6)|floor|tostring) + " \t " + .description.moniker' | sort -gr | nl

Usefull commands

Service management

Check logs

journalctl -fu pointd -o cat

Start service

sudo systemctl start pointd

Stop service

sudo systemctl stop pointd

Restart service

sudo systemctl restart pointd

Node info

Synchronization info

pointd status 2>&1 | jq .SyncInfo

Validator info

pointd status 2>&1 | jq .ValidatorInfo

Node info

pointd status 2>&1 | jq .NodeInfo

Show node id

pointd tendermint show-node-id

Wallet operations

List of wallets

pointd keys list

Recover wallet

pointd keys add $WALLET --recover

Delete wallet

pointd keys delete $WALLET

Get wallet balance

pointd query bank balances $POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS

Transfer funds

pointd tx bank send $POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS <TO_POINT_WALLET_ADDRESS> 100000000000000000000apoint


pointd tx gov vote 1 yes --from $WALLET --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID

Staking, Delegation and Rewards

Delegate stake

pointd tx staking delegate $POINT_VALOPER_ADDRESS 100000000000000000000apoint --from=$WALLET --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID --gas=auto

Redelegate stake from validator to another validator

pointd tx staking redelegate <srcValidatorAddress> <destValidatorAddress> 100000000000000000000apoint --from=$WALLET --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID --gas=auto

Withdraw all rewards

pointd tx distribution withdraw-all-rewards --from=$WALLET --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID --gas=auto

Withdraw rewards with commision

pointd tx distribution withdraw-rewards $POINT_VALOPER_ADDRESS --from=$WALLET --commission --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID

Validator management

Edit validator

pointd tx staking edit-validator \
  --moniker=$NODENAME \
  --identity=<your_keybase_id> \
  --website="<your_website>" \
  --details="<your_validator_description>" \
  --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID \

Unjail validator

bcnad tx slashing unjail \
  --broadcast-mode=block \
  --from=$WALLET \
  --chain-id=$POINT_CHAIN_ID \
