Generate a genesis tx carrying a self delegation


Generate a genesis transaction that creates a validator with a self-delegation, that is signed by the key in the Keyring referenced by a given name. A node ID and Bech32 consensus pubkey may optionally be provided. If they are omitted, they will be retrieved from the priv_validator.json file. The following default parameters are included:

delegation amount:           100000000stake
commission rate:             0.1
commission max rate:         0.2
commission max change rate:  0.01
minimum self delegation:     1

Example: $ zetacored gentx my-key-name 1000000stake --home=/path/to/home/dir --keyring-backend=os --chain-id=test-chain-1

  -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

      --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
      --fee-payer string                    Fee payer pays fees for the transaction instead of deducting from the signer
      --fees string                         Fees to pay along with transaction; eg: 10uatom

      --gas string                          gas limit to set per-transaction; set to "auto" to calculate sufficient gas automatically. Note: "auto" option doesn't always report accurate results. Set a valid coin value to adjust the result. Can be used instead of "fees". (default 200000)
      --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)
      --generate-only                       Build an unsigned transaction and write it to STDOUT (when enabled, the local Keybase only accessed when providing a key name)

      --min-self-delegation string          The minimum self delegation required on the validator

      --node string                         [host]:[port] to tendermint rpc interface for this chain 
      --node-id string                      The node's NodeID
      --note string                         Note to add a description to the transaction (previously --memo)

      --sign-mode string                    Choose sign mode (direct|amino-json|direct-aux), this is an advanced feature
      --timeout-height uint                 Set a block timeout height to prevent the tx from being committed past a certain height
      --tip string                          Tip is the amount that is going to be transferred to the fee payer on the target chain. This flag is only valid when used with --aux, and is ignored if the target chain didn't enable the TipDecorator
