Regenerating The Minting Key

Please note: this guide is for level 1+ accounts who have minted previously and need to regenerate their minting key to add to Node Management (meaning you already have generated your own reward share key in the past after reaching level 1). If you have not been sponsored or haven’t minted yet after reaching level 1, go to the Becoming A Minter page.

1. Open the UI.

2. Click on ‘REWARD SHARE’ on the left navigation column:

3. Click the settings toggle at the top right of the UI, and copy your public key (not your address).

4. Click ‘CREATE REWARD SHARE’ right underneath the settings Toggle at the top right of the UI:

5. Paste your public key into the box that comes up, do not change anything else, click ‘add’:

6. A new window will pop up with a new key, right click on it and copy that key before completing this step. This is your minting key (as seen in first image below). Click 'DECLINE’ as this key is already in Reward Share (disregard the error message if one is displayed after clicking to decline):

7. Then click on 'Node Management' on the left navigation column.

8. Click ‘ADD MINTING ACCOUNT’:

9. Right-click to paste the key - you can also paste by 'Cntrl' and 'V' keys. Click add. You should see “Minting Node Added Successfully!” (as seen in third image below).

Here is a single image guide for the steps above:

The sponsee does not have to wait for the sponsor to remove things on their end. The sponsee can begin these steps all on their own. Of course as a general courtesy, it is still nice to inform your sponsor of your account reaching 7200 blocks and you successfully setting up your own key to mint! That’s it! Congrats!

Remember: There is a 1 block confirmation period between creation of the key, from the point you can assign it, as it has to first be confirmed so the API can verify it. So be sure to wait at least 1 full minute (or notice block height and wait for next block after key creation) before attempting to assign the key… otherwise the assignment will fail as the chain is not aware of the created key.
