Staking on miners and sharders
0Chain miner smart contract allows staking on the miner and sharder nodes to validate transactions and earn rewards. To start staking on miner and sharder nodes, miner and sharder ID's are required which can be fetched using below commands.

Listing all miners

./zwallet ls-miners list the miners retrieved using the Miner smart contract. Parameters can be viewed using ./zwallet ls-miners --help flag.
Get list of all active miners from Miner SC
Usage:
zwallet ls-miners [flags]
Flags:
-h, --help help for ls-miners
--json as JSON
--jsonflag can be passed to retrieve miners as JSON data.
Command:
./zwallet ls-miners

Locking a stake on a node

Staking tokens on a miner or sharder nodes helps earning additional tokens over time. Tokens locked for staking can be unlocked anytime but you have to wait for the next view change cycle.
Note: If a node becomes offline, all stake pools are automatically unlocked and tokens are returned to wallets.
Stalking tokens can be locked using the ./zwallet mn-lock command. Parameters for locking the tokens can be viewed using the ./zwallet mn-lock --help.
Flags:
-h, --help help for mn-lock
--id string miner/sharder ID to lock stake for
--tokens float tokens to lock
Here, miner /sharder id with the required number of tokens to be locked are required.
Command for locking 0.2 tokens:
./zwallet mn-lock --id cdb9b5a29cb5f48b350481694c4645c2db24500e3af210e22e2d10477a68bad2 --tokens 0.2
Response:
locked with: b488738546d84aed9d3dcb2bbe24c161bc4338638669e64e814631efd430fd85
Note: If the locking of stakes is failing, verify the following.
  1. 1.
    Wallet has enough tokens
  2. 2.
    Node ID is valid
  3. 3.
    Node has available delegates

Getting the stake pools of a wallet

A stake pool allows multiple stakeholders (miners/sharders) to contribute to a blockchain in a manner that it increase their chances of earning staking rewards. Every stakeholder stakes tokens through its wallet in the stake pool.
To get the stake pool information of a particular wallet,./zwallet mn-user-info command can be used. Parameters for the ./zwallet mn-user-infocan be viewed using the --help tag.
Flags:
--client_id string get info for user, if empty, current user used, optional
-h, --help help for mn-user-info
--json as JSON
Here, Client ID for a particular user is required which can be fetched from the wallet located in the .zcn directory. As mentioned above --client_id flag is optional and if you do not specify a particular wallet client_id. It will find the stake pool related to wallet config in default wallet.json file.
Command:
./zwallet mn-user-info
Response:
- node: 110b07984a6592ae67f1830366f47c835f6f5f262be19ee4aedd1b9acf870aee (miner)
- pool_id: 77f7006f3ef89b5bc88016fbf9bc636cdb9c38425fa0e88940e4f99ddcf5be57
balance: 0.2
interests paid: 0.000000444
rewards paid: 59.5728
status: active
stake %: 100 %
On a successful response, you will see the staked miner/sharder nodes and the amount of tokens locked with that particular wallet. The response output can also be formatted in JSON data using the --json flag.

Getting the stake pool info

./zwallet mn-pool-info command can be used to get stake pool info for a particular miner/sharder. Parameters can be viewed using the ./zwallet mn-pool-info --help
Flags:
-h, --help help for mn-pool-info
--id string miner/sharder ID to get info for
--pool_id string pool ID to get info for
--id flag requires miner/sharder ID which can be fetched using ls-miners or ls-sharders command,pool_id is generated when you lock stake tokens for a miner/sharder node, you can copy the pool_id from the response text or can view it using mn-user-info command.
Command:
./zwallet mn-pool-info --id 110b07984a6592ae67f1830366f47c835f6f5f262be19ee4aedd1b9acf870aee --pool_id 77f7006f3ef89b5bc88016fbf9bc636cdb9c38425fa0e88940e4f99ddcf5be57

Unlocking a stake on node

Staking tokens can be unlocked using the ./zwallet mn-unlock command. Parameters for locking the tokens can be viewed using the ./zwallet mn-unlock --help
Usage:
zwallet mn-unlock [flags]
Flags:
-h, --help help for mn-unlock
--id string miner/sharder ID to unlock pool of
--pool_id string pool ID to unlock
Here, miner /sharder id with the pool ID to unlock the stake are required. Miner/sharder id can be fetched using ls-miners or ls-sharders command whereaspool_id is generated when you lock stake tokens for a miner/sharder node ,you can view it using mn-user-info command.
Command for unlocking would be:
./zwallet mn-unlock --id 110b07984a6592ae67f1830366f47c835f6f5f262be19ee4aedd1b9acf870aee --pool_id 77f7006f3ef89b5bc88016fbf9bc636cdb9c38425fa0e88940e4f99ddcf5be57
Output:
tokens will be unlocked next VC
Note: Tokens are released on the next view change cycle or at the next reward round.

Updating staking config of a node

./zwallet mn-update-settings command is used to update the staking config of a node. Parameters for the command can be viewed using --help flag.
Flags:
-h, --help help for mn-update-settings
--id string miner/sharder ID to update
--max_stake float max stake allowed
--min_stake float min stake allowed
--num_delegates int max number of delegate pools
Miner/Sharder ID of the node is a required flag and can be fetched using ls-minersor ls-sharders command. Variables that can be updated are max stake, min stake and number of delegate pools.
Before updating the configuration lets get the default staking configuration for miner/sharder node using :
./zwallet mn-info --id 110b07984a6592ae67f1830366f47c835f6f5f262be19ee4aedd1b9acf870aee
Response:

},

"last_health_check":1620947267
}
}
In the above configuration min stake, max stake, number of delegate pools are 0,1000000000000 and 10 respectively. Lets update the miner/sharder node for 25 delegate pools, min and max stake for 1000,100000 using mn-update-settings.
./zwallet mn-update-settings --id 110b07984a6592ae67f1830366f47c835f6f5f262be19ee4aedd1b9acf870aee --max_stake 100000 --min_stake 1000 --num_delegates 5
Note: Staking config can only be updated by the node's delegate wallet.
