Tooling for offline transaction creation
Builds a stake pool registration certificate.
jcli certificate new stake-pool-registration \ --vrf-key <vrf-public-key> \ --kes-key <kes-public-key> \ --start-validity <seconds-since-start> \ --management-threshold <THRESHOLD> \ --owner <owner-public-key> \ [--operator <operator-public-key>] \ [<output-file>]
--operator <operator-public-key>- optional, public key of the operator(s) of the pool.
output-file- optional, write the output to the given file or print it to the standard output if not defined
It is possible to retire a stake pool from the blockchain. By doing so the stake delegated to the stake pool will become dangling and will need to be re-delegated.
Remember though that the action won't be applied until the next following epoch. I.e. the certificate will take a whole epoch before being applied, this should leave time for stakers to redistribute their stake to other pools before having their stake becoming dangling.
It might be valuable for a stake pool operator to keep the stake pool running until the stake pool retirement certificate is fully applied in order to not miss any potential rewards.
jcli certificate new stake-pool-retirement \ --pool-id <STAKE_POOL_ID> \ --retirement-time <seconds-since-start> \ [<output-file>]
output-file- optional, write the output to the given file or print it to the standard output if not defined.
--retirement-time- is the number of seconds since the start in order to make the stake pool retire.
0means as soon as possible.
--pool-id- hex-encoded stake pool ID. Can be retrieved using
jcli certificate get-stake-pool-idcommand. See here for more details.
Builds a stake pool delegation certificate.
jcli certificate new stake-delegation <STAKE_KEY> <STAKE_POOL_IDS> [--output <output-file>]
-o, --output <output-file>- optional, write the output to the given file or print it to the standard output if not defined
<STAKE_KEY>- the public key used in the stake key registration
<STAKE_POOL_IDS>...- hex-encoded stake pool IDs and their numeric weights in format "pool_id:weight". If weight is not provided, it defaults to 1.
