f(x)Cored CLI Commands

f(x)Core Daemon

fxcored is the tool that enables you to interact with the node that runs on the f(x)Core network. In order to install it, follow the installation procedure.

Main structure of running fxcored commands

The fxcored help commands are nested. So $ fxcored will output docs for the top level commands (status, config, query, and tx). You can access documentation for sub commands with further help commands.
The very first command to generate a list of available commands:
fxcored
Return:
FunctionX Core Chain App
Usage:
fxcored [command]
Available Commands:
add-genesis-account Add a genesis account to genesis.json
collect-gentxs Collect genesis txs and output a genesis.json file
config Create or query an application CLI configuration file
data modify data or query data in database
debug Tool for helping with debugging your application
export Export state to JSON
gentx Generate a genesis tx carrying a self delegation

Flags:
-h, --help help for fxcored
--home string directory for config and data (default "/root/.fxcore")
--log_filter strings The logging filter can discard custom log type (ABCIQuery)
--log_format string The logging format (json|plain) (default "plain")
--log_level string The logging level (trace|debug|info|warn|error|fatal|panic) (default "info")
--trace print out full stack trace on errors
The return value will include:
  • a header which explains what the command is, for example FunctionX Core Chain App
  • the usage for example fxcored [command] where you will need to input fxcored and a follow up command like fxcored tx
  • all available commands
  • and all flags which might be needed for commands
We will be going through a common command along with the various sub commands and flags. Selecting the tx command:
fxcored tx
Return:
Transactions subcommands
Usage:
fxcored tx [flags]
fxcored tx [command]
Available Commands:
bank Bank transaction subcommands
broadcast Broadcast transactions generated offline
...
Additional help topics:
fxcored tx upgrade Upgrade transaction subcommands
You may either choose to insert a flag or a command after fxcored tx:
fxcored tx --help
or
fxcored tx gov
the latter will return:
Governance transactions subcommands
Usage:
fxcored tx gov [flags]
fxcored tx gov [command]
Available Commands:
deposit Deposit tokens for an active proposal
submit-proposal Submit a proposal along with an initial deposit
vote Vote for an active proposal, options: yes/no/no_with_veto/abstain
...
Use "fxcored tx gov [command] --help" for more information about a command.
continuing:
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal
return:
Error: invalid message: can't proto marshal <nil>
Usage:
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal [flags]
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal [command]
Available Commands:
cancel-software-upgrade Cancel the current software upgrade proposal
community-pool-spend Submit a community pool spend proposal
param-change Submit a parameter change proposal
software-upgrade Submit a software upgrade proposal
...
Use "fxcored tx gov submit-proposal [command] --help" for more information about a command.
now if you use the --help flag:
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal --help
return:
Submit a proposal along with an initial deposit.
Proposal title, description, type and deposit can be given directly or through a proposal JSON file.
Example:
$ fxcored tx gov submit-proposal --proposal="path/to/proposal.json" --from mykey
Where proposal.json contains:
{
"title": "Test Proposal",
"description": "My awesome proposal",
"type": "Text",
"deposit": "10test"
}
Which is equivalent to:
$ fxcored tx gov submit-proposal --title="Test Proposal" --description="My awesome proposal" --type="Text" --deposit="10test" --from mykey
Usage:
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal [flags]
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal [command]
Available Commands:
cancel-software-upgrade Cancel the current software upgrade proposal
community-pool-spend Submit a community pool spend proposal
param-change Submit a parameter change proposal
software-upgrade Submit a software upgrade proposal
...
following the prompt:
In this case, a transaction fee must be paid! So do remember to add --fees XXXXXFX in your command. If you did not input the --fees flag, you will be prompted to add --fees 1200000000000000000FX in your command.
The minimum fee for this transaction is 1.2FX which after multiplying by 10^18 is 1200000000000000000FX.
Alternatively, a more universal command is --gas=auto --gas-adjustment=1.25 --gas-prices=4000000000000FX. --gas=auto automatically assesses the gas used for that transaction. This depends on the transaction itself and also the state of the blockchain. --gas-adjustment=1.25 means that there will be a 25% buffer added to the automatically assessed gas amount. --gas-prices=4000000000000FX is the gas price you will be paying for. For more details on gas, kindly refer to the section on gas below.
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal --title="BLINDGOTCHI" --description="CLAUDIOXBARROS’s pet" --type="Text" --deposit=" 200000000000000000000FX" --gas=auto --gas-adjustment=1.25 --gas-prices=4000000000000FX --from richard
return:

Setting up fxcored

The main command used to set up fxcored is the following:
fxcored config <config file name> <key> [value] [flags]
It allows you to set a default value for each given flag.
First, set up the address of the full-node you want to connect to:
fxcored config <config file name> <host>:<port>
# example: fxcored config config.toml rpc.laddr https://77.87.106.33:26657
If you run your own full-node, just use tcp://localhost:26657 as the address.
Then, let us set the default value of the --trust-node flag:
fxcored config config.toml trust-node true
# Set to true if you trust the full-node you are connecting to, false otherwise
Finally, let us set the chain-id of the blockchain we want to interact with:
fxcored config config.toml chain-id dhobyghaut
for Mainnet the ChainId should be fxcore

Keys

Key Types

There are three types of key representations that are used:
  • fx
    • Derived from account keys generated by fxcored keys add
    • Used to receive funds
    • Addresses that only have a preceding fx are wallet addresses
    • e.g. fx15h6vd5f0wqps26zjlwrc6chah08ryu4hzzdwhc
  • fxvaloper
    • Used to associate a validator to it's operator
    • Used to invoke staking commands
    • Addresses preceding with fxvaloperare validator consensus address
    • e.g. fxvaloper1carzvgq3e6y3z5kz5y6gxp3wpy3qdrv928vyah
  • fxpub
    • Derived from account keys generated by fxcored keys add
    • Addresses that precede with fxpub are the wallet public key
    • e.g. fxpub1zcjduc3q7fu03jnlu2xpl75s2nkt7krm6grh4cc5aqth73v0zwmea25wj2hsqhlqzm
  • fxvalconspub
    • Generated when the node is created with fxcored init.
    • Get this value with fxcored tendermint show-validator
    • Addresses preceding fxvalconspub are validator consensus public key
    • e.g. fxvalconspub1zcjduepq0ms2738680y72v44tfyqm3c9ppduku8fs6sr73fx7m666sjztznqzp2emf

Migrate Keys From Legacy On-Disk Keybase To OS Built-in Secret Store

Older versions of fxcored used store keys in the user's home directory. If you are migrating from an old version of fxcored you will need to migrate your old keys into your operating system's credentials storage by running the following command:
fxcored keys migrate <old_home_dir> [flags]
The command will prompt for each passphrase. If a passphrase is incorrect, it will skip the respective key.

Generate Keys

You'll need an account with a private and public key pair (a.k.a. sk, pk respectively) to be able to receive funds, send txs, bond tx, etc.
To generate an old secp256k1 key, follow this guide. New eth_secp256k1 will be the default key generation scheme when f(x)Core becomes EVM compatible.
To generate a new eth_secp256k1 key:
fxcored keys add <account_name>
The output of the above command will contain a seed phrase. It is recommended to save the seed phrase in a safe place so that in case you forget the password of the operating system's credentials store, you could eventually regenerate the key from the seed phrase with the following command:
fxcored keys add <account_name> --recover
If you check your private keys, you'll now see <account_name>:
fxcored keys show <account_name>
Additionally and ⚠⚠ importantly, if you wish to have an added layer of protection on your keys, you may add the --keyring-backend flag and specify the file name. Setting your key up this way will ensure another layer of protection for signing any transactions.
--keyring-backend string Select keyring's backend (os|file|test) (default "file")
fxcored keys add <secondKeyName> \
--ledger \
--index <i> \
--keyring-backend <file_name>
for example:
fxcored keys add shangqi \
--ledger \
--index 3 \
--keyring-backend file
you will be prompted for a keyring passphrase (password must be at least 8 characters) :
Enter keyring passphrase:
In the future, whenever you use this account to sign off on a transaction, you will have to add the --keyring-backend <file_name> flag and enter the keyring passphrase.
Save a backup of your keyring passphrase in a secure place. Losing your keyring passphrase will result in the lost of all your funds created using the keyring passphrase❗
Also to access your keys in the keyring file do not forget to add the --keyring flag
View the validator operator's address via:
fxcored keys show <account_name> --bech=val
You can see all your available keys by typing:
fxcored keys list
View the validator pubkey for your node by typing:
fxcored tendermint show-validator
Note that this is the Tendermint signing key, not the operator key you will use in delegation transactions. Warning: We strongly recommend NOT using the same passphrase for multiple keys. The Function X team will not be responsible for the loss of funds.

Generate Multisig Public Keys

You can generate and print a multisig public key by typing:
fxcored keys add --multisig=name1,name2,name3[...] --multisig-threshold=K new_key_name
Be sure to note that for multisig accounts, if you were to create any transaction, for example --from=<multisig_account> your <multisig_account> needs to be the wallet address ie fx123l3kjltjwlfgjslfg..... Only for those non-multisig accounts can you use the name of the account ie --from=sheldoncooper.
K is the minimum number of private keys that must have signed the transactions that carry the public key's address as signer.
The --multisig flag must contain the name of public keys that will be combined into a public key that will be generated and stored as new_key_name in the local database. All names supplied through --multisig must already exist in the local database. Unless the flag --nosort is set, the order in which the keys are supplied on the command line does not matter, i.e. the following commands generate two identical keys:
fxcored keys add --multisig=foo,bar,baz --multisig-threshold=2 multisig_address
fxcored keys add --multisig=baz,foo,bar --multisig-threshold=2 multisig_address
Multisig addresses can also be generated on-the-fly and printed through the which command:
fxcored keys show --multisig-threshold K name1 name2 name3 [...]
For more information regarding how to generate, sign and broadcast transactions with a multi signature account see Multisig Transactions.

Tx Broadcasting

When broadcasting transactions, fxcored accepts a --broadcast-mode flag. This flag can have a value of sync (default), async, or block, where sync makes the client return a CheckTx response, async makes the client return immediately, and block makes the client wait for the tx to be committed (or timing out).
It is important to note that the block mode should not be used in most circumstances. This is because broadcasting can timeout but the tx may still be included in a block. This can result in many undesirable situations. Therefore, it is best to use sync or async and query by tx hash to determine when the tx is included in a block.

Fees & Gas

Each transaction may either use the --fees or --gas flags, but not both.
Validator's have a minimum gas price (multi-denom) configuration and they use this value when determining if they should include the transaction in a block during CheckTx, where gasPrices >= minGasPrices. Note, your transaction must use fees that are greater than or equal to any of the denominations the validator requires.
Note: With such a mechanism in place, validators may start to prioritize txs by gasPrice in the mempool, so providing higher fees or gas prices may yield higher tx priority.
e.g.
fxcored tx bank send ... --fees=4000000000000FX
or
fxcored tx bank send ... --gas-prices=4000000000000FX
To query the gas price of your current node:
fxcored query gas-price
Note: You may want to cap the maximum gas that can be consumed by the transaction via the --gas flag. If you pass --gas=auto, the gas supply will be automatically estimated before executing the transaction. Gas estimate might be inaccurate as state changes could occur in between the end of the simulation and the actual execution of a transaction, thus an adjustment is applied on top of the original estimate in order to ensure the transaction is broadcasted successfully. The adjustment can be controlled via the --gas-adjustment flag. The default value is 1.0.

Account

Get Tokens

On a testnet, getting tokens is usually done via a faucet. You may refer to this link.

Query Account Balance

After receiving tokens to your address, you can view your account's balance by typing:
fxcored q bank balances <account_fx>
Note When you query an account balance with zero tokens, you will get this error: No account with address <account_fx> was found in the state. This can also happen if you fund the account before your node has fully synced with the chain. These are both normal.

Send Tokens

The following command could be used to send coins from one account to another:
fxcored tx bank send <from_key_or_address> <to_address> <amount> --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices "4000000000000FX" --chain-id=<chain-id>
Note: The amount argument accepts the format <value|coin_name>. For example, 10000000000000000000FX which is equivalent to 10FX
Now, view the updated balances of the origin and destination accounts:
fxcored query account <account_fx>
fxcored query account <destination_fx>
You can also check your balance at a given block by using the --height flag:
fxcored query account <account_fx> --height <int>
You can simulate a transaction without actually broadcasting it by appending the --dry-run flag to the command line (this is to return a gas estimate):
fxcored tx bank send <from_key_or_address> <to_address> <amount> --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices "4000000000000FX" --dry-run
Furthermore, you can build a transaction and print its JSON format to STDOUT by appending --generate-only to the list of the command line arguments. Running the following command will store build the transaction and store it in a file named "unsignedSendTx.json":
fxcored tx send <sender_address> <recipient_address> 10000000000000000000FX \
--chain-id=<chain_id> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--generate-only > unsignedSendTx.json
fxcored tx sign \
--chain-id=<chain_id> \
--from=<key_name> \
unsignedSendTx.json > signedSendTx.json
The --generate-only flag prevents fxcored from accessing the local keybase. Thus when such flag is supplied <sender_key_name_or_address> must be an address.
You can validate the transaction's signatures by typing the following:
fxcored tx sign --validate-signatures signedSendTx.json
You can broadcast the signed transaction to a node by providing the JSON file to the following command:
fxcored tx broadcast <file_path>
eg.
fxcored tx broadcast signedSendTx.json

Query Transactions

Matching a Set of Events

You can use the transaction search command to query for transactions that match a specific set of events, which are added on every transaction.
Each event is composed by a key-value pair in the form of {eventType}.{eventAttribute}={value}. Events can also be combined to query for a more specific result using the & symbol.
You can query transactions by events as follows:
fxcored query txs --events='message.sender=fx1...'
And for using multiple events:
fxcored query txs --events='message.sender=fx1...&message.action=withdraw_delegator_reward'
The pagination is supported as well via page and limit:
fxcored query txs --events='message.sender=fx1...' --page=1 --limit=20
The action tag always equals the message type returned by the Type() function of the relevant message.
You can find a list of available events on each of the SDK modules:

Matching a Transaction's Hash

You can also query a single transaction by its hash using the following command:
fxcored query tx [hash]
tx hash on the block explorer are preceded with 0x. please omit the 0x from the tx hash

Slashing

Unjailing

To unjail your jailed validator
fxcored tx slashing unjail --from <validator-operator-addr> --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices "4000000000000FX"

Signing Info

To retrieve a validator's signing info:
fxcored query slashing signing-info <validator-pubkey>

Query Parameters

You can get the current slashing parameters via:
fxcored query slashing params

Minting

You can query for the minting/inflation parameters via:
fxcored query mint params
To query for the current inflation value:
fxcored query mint inflation
To query for the current annual provisions value:
fxcored query mint annual-provisions

Checking block information and validators signatures

The following command will query for a transaction by hash in a committed block:
fxcored query block-results
The following command will get verified data for a the block at given height:
fxcored query block
Using these commands and filtering out the necessary information, you will be able to deduce the uptime of other validators by checking if they missed any signatures for that block.
A sample query to check for any missing validator signature given a particular block height:
fxcored query block 644696 --node https://testnet-fx-json.functionx.io:26657 | jq '.block.last_commit'

Staking

Set up a Validator

Please refer to the Validator Setup section for a more complete guide on how to set up a validator.

Delegate to a Validator

On the upcoming mainnet, you can delegate FX to a validator. These delegators can receive part of the validator's fee revenue. Read more about the incentives.
Query Validators
You can query the list of all validators of a specific chain:
fxcored query staking validators
If you want to get the information of a single validator you can check it with:
fxcored query staking validator <account_fxval>

Bond Tokens

On the f(x)Core mainnet, we delegate FX. Here's how you can bond tokens to a testnet validator (i.e. delegate):
fxcored tx staking delegate \
<validator> \
<amount> \
--from=<key_name> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX"
<validator> is the operator address of the validator to which you intend to delegate. If you are running a local testnet, you can find this with:
fxcored keys show [name] --bech val
where [name] is the name of the key you specified when you initialized fxcored.
While tokens are bonded, they are pooled with all the other bonded tokens in the network. Validators and delegators obtain a percentage of shares that equal their stake in this pool.
Query Delegations
In this section and the next, do make sure you check if the command has a plural form or not. Adding an (s) behind delegation to delegations results in a different command.
Once submitted a delegation to a validator, you can see it's information by using the following command:
fxcored query staking delegation <delegator_addr> <validator_addr>
Or if you want to check all your current delegations with disctinct validators:
fxcored query staking delegations <delegator_addr>
You can also query all of the delegations to a particular validator:
fxcored query staking delegations-to <validator_addr>

Unbond Tokens

If for any reason the validator misbehaves, or you just want to unbond a certain amount of tokens, use this following command.
fxcored tx staking unbond \
<validator_addr> \
10FX \
--from=<key_name> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--chain-id=<chain_id>
The unbonding will be automatically completed when the unbonding period has passed.
Query Unbonding-Delegations
Once you begin an unbonding-delegation, you can see it's information by using the following command:
fxcored query staking unbonding-delegation <delegator_addr> <validator_addr>
Or if you want to check all your current unbonding-delegations with disctinct validators:
fxcored query staking unbonding-delegations <account_fx>
Additionally, as you can get all the unbonding-delegations from a particular validator:
fxcored query staking unbonding-delegations-from <account_fxval>

Redelegate Tokens

A redelegation is a type delegation that allows you to bond illiquid tokens from one validator to another:
fxcored tx staking redelegate \
<src-validator-operator-addr> \
<dst-validator-operator-addr> \
10FX \
--from=<key_name> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--chain-id=<chain_id>
Here you can also redelegate a specific shares-amount or a shares-fraction with the corresponding flags.
The redelegation will be automatically completed when the unbonding period has passed.
Query Redelegations
Once you begin a redelegation, you can see it's information by using the following command:
fxcored query staking redelegation <delegator_addr> <src_val_addr> <dst_val_addr>
Or if you want to check all your current unbonding-delegations with distinct validators:
fxcored query staking redelegations <account_fx>
Additionally, as you can get all the outgoing redelegations from a particular validator:
fxcored query staking redelegations-from <account_fxval>
However, there is a limit to how frequent you can redelegate. For more information on redelegation.

Query Parameters

Parameters define high level settings for staking. You can get the current values by using:
fxcored query staking params
With the above command you will get the values for:
  • Unbonding time
  • Maximum numbers of validators
  • Coin denomination for staking
All these values will be subject to updates through a governance process by ParameterChange proposals.

Query Pool

A staking Pool defines the dynamic parameters of the current state. You can query them with the following command:
fxcored query staking pool
With the pool command you will get the values for:
  • Bonded tokens
  • Not-bonded tokens

Governance

Governance is the process from which users in the f(x)Core can come to consensus on software upgrades, parameters of the mainnet or signaling mechanisms through text proposals. This is done through voting on proposals, which will be submitted by FX holders on the mainnet.
Some considerations about the voting process:
  • Voting is done by bonded FX holders on a 100 bonded FX 1 vote basis
  • Delegators who do not vote will inherit the vote of their validator
  • Votes are tallied at the end of the voting period (2 weeks on mainnet). Addresses can vote multiple times before the end of the voting period to update their Option value (incurring transaction fees each time), only the most recently casted vote will count as valid
  • Voters can choose between options Yes, No, NoWithVeto and Abstain
  • By the end of the voting period, a proposal is accepted if:
    • (YesVotes / (YesVotes+NoVotes+NoWithVetoVotes)) > 1/2
    • (NoWithVetoVotes / (YesVotes+NoVotes+NoWithVetoVotes)) < 1/3
    • ((YesVotes+NoVotes+NoWithVetoVotes) / totalBondedStake) >= quorum
For more information about the governance process and how it works, please check out the Governance module specification.
The minimum deposit for a governance proposal is 10,000FX (through the command line, this amounts to 10000000000000000000000FX after multiplying by 10^18).

Create a Governance Proposal

In order to create a governance proposal, you must submit an initial deposit along with a title and description. Various modules outside of governance may implement their own proposal types and handlers (eg. parameter changes), where the governance module itself supports Text proposals. Any module outside of governance has it's command mounted on top of submit-proposal.
To submit a Text proposal (the title and description fields will be string input so enclose the input in ""):
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal \
--title=<title> \
--description=<description> \
--type="Text" \
--deposit="1000000FX" \
--from=<name> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--chain-id=<chain_id>
You may also provide the proposal directly through the --proposal flag which points to a JSON file containing the proposal.
To submit a parameter change proposal, you must provide a proposal file as its contents are less friendly to CLI input:
fxcored tx gov submit-proposal param-change <path/to/proposal.json> \
--from=<name> \

Where proposal.json contains the following:
{
"title": "Param Change",
"description": "Update max validators",
"changes": [
{
"subspace": "staking",
"key": "MaxValidators",
"value": 105
}
],
"deposit": [
{
"denom": "stake",
"amount": "10000000"
}
]
}
Currently parameter changes are evaluated but not validated, so it is very important that any value change is valid (ie. correct type and within bounds) for its respective parameter, eg. MaxValidators should be an integer and not a decimal.
Proper vetting of a parameter change proposal should prevent this from happening (no deposits should occur during the governance process), but it should be noted regardless.
The SoftwareUpgrade command is currently not supported as it's not implemented and currently does not differ from the semantics of a Text proposal.
Query Proposals
Once created, you can now query information of the proposal:
fxcored query gov proposal <proposal_id>
Or query all available proposals:
fxcored query gov proposals
You can also query proposals filtered by voter or depositor by using the corresponding flags.
To query for the proposer of a given governance proposal:
fxcored query gov proposer <proposal_id>

Increase Deposit

In order for a proposal to be broadcasted to the network, the amount deposited must be above a minDeposit value (initial value: 10000000000000000000000FX). If the proposal you previously created didn't meet this requirement, you can still increase the total amount deposited to activate it. Once the minimum deposit is reached, the proposal enters voting period:
fxcored tx gov deposit <proposal_id> "10000000000000000000000FX" \
--from=<name> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--chain-id=<chain_id>
NOTE: Proposals that don't meet this requirement will be deleted after MaxDepositPeriod is reached.
Query Deposits
Once a new proposal is created, you can query all the deposits submitted to it:
fxcored query gov deposits <proposal_id>
You can also query a deposit submitted by a specific address:
fxcored query gov deposit <proposal_id> <depositor_address>

Vote on a Proposal

After a proposal's deposit reaches the MinDeposit value, the voting period opens. Bonded FX holders can then cast vote on it:
fxcored tx gov vote <proposal_id> <Yes/No/NoWithVeto/Abstain> \
--from=<name> \
--gas=auto \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--chain-id=<chain_id>
Query Votes
Check the vote with the option you just submitted:
fxcored query gov vote <proposal_id> <voter_address>
You can also get all the previous votes submitted to the proposal with:
fxcored query gov votes <proposal_id>

Query proposal tally results

To check the current tally of a given proposal you can use the tally command:
fxcored query gov tally <proposal_id>

Query Governance Parameters

To check the current governance parameters run:
fxcored query gov params
To query subsets of the governance parameters run:
fxcored query gov param voting
fxcored query gov param tallying
fxcored query gov param deposit

Fee Distribution

Query Distribution Parameters

To check the current distribution parameters, run:
fxcored query distribution params

Query distribution Community Pool

To query all coins in the community pool which is under Governance control:
fxcored query distribution community-pool

Query outstanding rewards

To check the current total outstanding (un-withdrawn) rewards of a particular validator (validator's+delegators' rewards), run:
fxcored query distribution validator-outstanding-rewards <validator-addr>

Query Validator Commission

To check the current outstanding commission for a validator (excluding the rewards of the wallet tied to that validator address), run:
fxcored query distribution commission <validator_address>

Query Validator Slashes

To check historical slashes for a validator, run:
fxcored query distribution slashes <validator_address> <start_height> <end_height>

Query Delegator Rewards

To check current rewards for a delegation (were they to be withdrawn), run:
fxcored query distribution rewards <delegator_address> <validator_address>

Query All Delegator Rewards

To check all current rewards for a delegation (were they to be withdrawn), run:
fxcored query distribution rewards <delegator_address>

Claiming Rewards

Claiming rewards for delegators and validators

Withdraw rewards from a given delegation address, and optionally withdraw validator commission (by adding in a --commission flag, see below) if the delegation address given is a validator operator:
fxcored tx distribution withdraw-rewards <validator-addr> --from <_name> --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices "4000000000000FX" --chain-id=<chain-id>
Withdraw the validator's commission in addition to the rewards:
fxcored tx distribution withdraw-rewards <validator-addr> --from mykey --commission --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices "4000000000000FX" --chain-id=<chain-id>

Multisig Transactions

Multisig transactions require signatures of multiple private keys. Thus, generating and signing a transaction from a multisig account involve cooperation among the parties involved. A multisig transaction can be initiated by any of the key holders, and at least one of them would need to import other parties' public keys into their Keybase and generate a multisig public key in order to finalize and broadcast the transaction.
For example, given a multisig key comprising the keys p1, p2, and p3, each of which is held by a distinct party, the user holding p1 would require to import both p2 and p3 in order to generate the multisig account public key:
fxcored keys add \
p2 \
--pubkey=fxpub1addwnpepqtd28uwa0yxtwal5223qqr5aqf5y57tc7kk7z8qd4zplrdlk5ez5kdnlrj4
fxcored keys add \
p3 \
--pubkey=fxpub1addwnpepqgj04jpm9wrdml5qnss9kjxkmxzywuklnkj0g3a3f8l5wx9z4ennz84ym5t
fxcored keys add \
--multisig=p1,p2,p3[...] \
--multisig-threshold=2 \
new_key_name
A new multisig public key p1p2p3 has been stored, and its address will be used as signer of multisig transactions:
fxcored keys show --address p1p2p3
You may also view multisig threshold, pubkey constituents and respective weights by viewing the JSON output of the key or passing the --show-multisig flag:
fxcored keys show p1p2p3 -o json
fxcored keys show p1p2p3 --show-multisig
The first step to create a multisig transaction is to initiate it on behalf of the multisig address created above:
Be sure to note that for multisig accounts, if you were to create any transaction, for example --from=<multisig_account> your <multisig_account> needs to be the wallet address ie fx123l3kjltjwlfgjslfg..... Only for those non-multisig accounts can you use the name of the account ie --from=heimendinger.
fxcored tx bank send fx1570v2fq3twt0f0x02vhxpuzc9jc4yl30q2qned fx12u8ekfqdd75r4apyqv2xst6qw0n3wvr2asncf5 1000000000000000000FX \
--gas="auto" \
--gas-adjustment=1.5 \
--gas-prices="4000000000000FX" \
--generate-only > unsignedTx.json
The file unsignedTx.json contains the unsigned transaction encoded in JSON. p1 can now sign the transaction with its own private key:
fxcored tx sign \
unsignedTx.json \
--multisig=<multisig_address> \
--from=p1 \
--output-document=p1signature.json \
--chain-id=dhobyghaut
Once the signature is generated, p1 transmits both unsignedTx.json and p1signature.json to p2 or p3, which in turn will generate their respective signature:
fxcored tx sign \
unsignedTx.json \
--multisig=<multisig_address> \
--from=p2 \
--output-document=p2signature.json \
--chain-id=dhobyghaut
for Mainnet the ChainId should be fxcore
p1p2p3 is a 2-of-3 multisig key, therefore one additional signature is sufficient. Any the key holders can now generate the multisig transaction by combining the required signature files:
fxcored tx multisign \
unsignedTx.json \
p1p2p3 \
p1signature.json p2signature.json > signedTx.json
The transaction can now be sent to the node:
fxcored tx broadcast signedTx.json

Shells Completion Scripts

Completion scripts for popular UNIX shell interpreters such as Bash and Zsh can be generated through the completion command, which is available for both fxcored and fxcored.
If you want to generate Bash completion scripts run the following command:
fxcored completion > fxcored_completion
fxcored completion > fxcorecli_completion
If you want to generate Zsh completion scripts run the following command:
fxcored completion --zsh > fxcored_completion
fxcored completion --zsh > fxcorecli_completion
Note: On most UNIX systems, such scripts may be loaded in .bashrc or .bash_profile to enable Bash autocompletion:
echo '. fxcored_completion' >> ~/.bashrc
echo '. fxcorecli_completion' >> ~/.bashrc
Refer to the user's manual of your interpreter provided by your operating system for information on how to enable shell autocompletion.
