gentx command

babylond gentx [key_name] [amount] [flags]


  -a, --account-number uint                 The account number of the signing account (offline mode only)
--amount string Amount of coins to bond
--aux Generate aux signer data instead of sending a tx
-b, --broadcast-mode string Transaction broadcasting mode (sync|async|block) (default "sync")
--chain-id string The network chain ID
--commission-max-change-rate string The maximum commission change rate percentage (per day)
--commission-max-rate string The maximum commission rate percentage
--commission-rate string The initial commission rate percentage
--details string The validator's (optional) details
--dry-run ignore the --gas flag and perform a simulation of a transaction, but don't broadcast it (when enabled, the local Keybase is not accessible)
--fee-granter string Fee granter grants fees for the transaction

--fees string Fees to pay along with transaction; eg: 10uatom
--from string Name or address of private key with which to sign

--gas-adjustment float adjustment factor to be multiplied against the estimate returned by the tx simulation; if the gas limit is set manually this flag is ignored (default 1)
--gas-prices string Gas prices in decimal format to determine the transaction fee (e.g. 0.1uatom)
