For some time now, we’ve onboarded Hosts onto the network manually, and sometimes it has taken a little while to process the backlog, especially when we have a surge of new devices. This is no longer the case. You’re now able to register and start a device in the time it takes an Ethereum transfer to process.
To give you an idea of how easy the new process is, let’s start by creating a stake.
$ edge-cli stake list ID Device Verified Unique Amount $ edge-cli stake new Stake 5e61333e578f6400126d14ad created. Use 'edge-cli stake list' to see your stakes Please send 5000.001410140287 $EDGE to 0x370f4d7625c10499bbb9353F3E91f83A0b750BEc For help, please visit https://edge.network/staking for a video tutorial $ edge-cli stake list ID Device Verified Unique Amount 5e613289578f6400126d14ac none No 5000.001305243441
Next up it’s time to fund our new stake, so following the instructions, I’ll now send
5000.001305243441 $EDGE to
$ edge-cli stake list ID Device Verified Unique Amount 5e613289578f6400126d14ac none Yes 5000.001305243441
You can then easily assign it to a device, either when registering a device.
$ edge-cli register Successfully registered device "shining-example" (f4eb949d-58bf-4781-ba53-6da9dbea0862) ✔ Use existing stake ? Please select the stake to use for this device: ▸ 5e613289578f6400126d14ac 5000.001305243441 Verified (unassigned) $ edge-cli stake list ID Device Verified Unique Amount 5e613289578f6400126d14ac shining-example (this device) Yes 5000.001305243441
Then it’s as simple as running the start command.
$ edge-cli start Successfully started device "shining-example"
In addition to using Edge CLI to manage your stakes, you’ll also be able view your stakes within Console on the new Stakes page. In time, you’ll also be able to create and manage your stakes here too. But that’s not all, there are a number of other changes released with the new version of Console, including the ability to edit your Content Delivery deployments.
To see more, take a look at the new Changelog) page in Console.
🔗Processing Legacy Stakes
If you’ve already sent stakes manually, these won’t appear right away. We’re working hard to process these legacy stakes, and over the next few weeks you should see them start to appear in your account. If you don’t see yours right away, don’t worry, it’ll appear in time.
