stafihubd keys add

Derive a new private key and encrypt to disk.
stafihubd keys add <key-name> [flags]
Flags:
Name, shorthand
Default
Description
Required

Construct and store a multisig public key
--multisig-threshold
1
K out of N required signatures
--nosort
false
Keys passed to --multisig are taken in the order they're supplied

Interactively prompt user for BIP39 passphrase and mnemonic
--ledger
false
Store a local reference to a private key on a Ledger device

Create a new key

stafihubd keys add MyKey
Enter and repeat the password, at least 8 characters, then you will get a new key.
:::warning Important
write the seed phrase in a safe place! It is the only way to recover your account if you ever forget your password. :::

Recover an existing key from seed phrase

If you forget your password or lose your key, or you wanna use your key in another place, you can recover your key by your seed phrase.
stafihubd keys add MyKey --recover
You'll be asked to enter and repeat the new password for your key, and enter the seed phrase. Then you get your key back.
Enter a passphrase for your key:
Repeat the passphrase:
Enter your recovery seed phrase:

Create a multisig key

The following example creates a multisig key with 3 sub-keys, and specify the minimum number of signatures as 2. The tx could be broadcast only when the number of signatures is greater than or equal to 2.
stafihubd keys add <multisig-keyname> --multisig-threshold=2 --multisig=<signer-keyname-1>,<signer-keyname-2>,<signer-keyname-3>
:::tip <signer-keyname> can be the type of "local/offline/ledger", but not "multi" type.
If you don't have all the permission of sub-keys, you can ask for the pubkeys to create the offline keys first, then you will be able to create the multisig key.
Offline key can be created by "stafihubd keys add --pubkey". :::
How to use multisig key to sign and broadcast a transaction, please refer to multisign

stafihubd keys delete

Delete a local key by the given name.
stafihubd keys delete <key-name> [flags]
Flags:

stafihubd keys export

Export the keystore of a key to a json file
stafihubd keys export <key-name> [flags]

Export keystore

stafihubd keys export Mykey --output-file=<path-to-keystore>

stafihubd keys import

Import a ASCII armored private key into the local keybase.

Import a ASCII armored private key

stafihubd keys import <name> <keyfile> [flags]

stafihubd keys list

List all the keys stored by this key manager along with their associated name, type, address and pubkey.
Flags:
Name, shorthand
Default
Description
Required
--list-name
List names only

List all keys

stafihubd keys list

stafihubd keys migrate

Migrate key information from the legacy (db-based) Keybase to the new keyring-based Keybase.
Flags:
Name, shorthand
Default
Description
Required
--dry-run
Run migration without actually persisting any changes to the new Keybase

Migrate key information

stafihubd keys migrate [flags]

stafihubd keys mnemonic

Create a bip39 mnemonic, sometimes called a seed phrase, by reading from the system entropy. To pass your own entropy, use unsafe-entropy mode.
stafihubd keys mnemonic [flags]
Flags:
Name, shorthand
Default
Description
Required
--unsafe-entropy
Prompt the user to supply their own entropy, instead of relying on the system

Create a bip39 mnemonic

stafihubd keys mnemonic
You'll get a bip39 mnemonic with 24 words, e.g.:
beauty entire blue tape ordinary fix rotate learn smart tiger dolphin cycle cigar dish alcohol slab bachelor vital design consider paper panther mad eternal

stafihubd keys parse

Convert and print to stdout key addresses and fingerprints from hexadecimal into bech32 cosmos prefixed format and vice versa.

Convert and print to stdout key addresses and fingerprints

stafihubd keys parse <hex-or-bech32-address> [flags]

stafihubd keys show

Get details of a local key.
stafihubd keys show <key-name> [flags]
Flags:
Name, shorthand
Default
Description
Required
--address
false
Output the address only (overrides --output)
--bech
acc
The Bech32 prefix encoding for a key (acc/val/cons)
--device
false
Output the address in a ledger device
--multisig-threshold
1
K out of N required signatures
--pubkey
false

Get details of a local key

stafihubd keys show MyKey
The following infos will be shown:
- name: Mykey
type: local
address: iaa1tulwx2hwz4dv8te6cflhda64dn0984harlzegw
pubkey: iap1addwnpepq24rufap6u0sysqcpgsfzqhw3x8nfkhqhtmpgqt0369rlyqcg0vkgwzc4k0
mnemonic: ""
threshold: 0
pubkeys: []

Get validator operator address

If an address has been bonded to be a validator operator (which the address you used to create a validator), then you can use --bech val to get the operator's address prefixed by iva and the pubkey prefixed by ivp:
stafihubd keys show MyKey --bech val
Example Output:
- name: Mykey
type: local
address: iva1tulwx2hwz4dv8te6cflhda64dn0984hakwgk4f
pubkey: ivp1addwnpepq24rufap6u0sysqcpgsfzqhw3x8nfkhqhtmpgqt0369rlyqcg0vkgd8e6zy
mnemonic: ""
threshold: 0
pubkeys: []
