Become an Incognito Validator
The final steps to start mining

Most updated version available here: https://we.incognito.org/t/how-to-host-a-virtual-node

Step 1: Create your account

Download the Incognito App
Open the app and it will automatically generate a wallet for you
Tap on Keychain
Tap the “Key” icon to get the details of your account.
Copy and save your VALIDATOR KEY somewhere. You’ll need it in STEP 3.

Step 2: Set up your server

You can run Incognito on a low-cost server. If you don’t have a server yet, it’s really simple and takes just a couple of minutes. You can set up an account with a VPS provider or a cloud service provider like DigitalOcean, AWS or Vultr, Linode. It is highly recommended to set up your server with DigitalOcean Instance.
Useful instructions: *How to set up a Digital Ocean Instance? *How to set up an AWS account? The minimum server requirements are 4GB RAM, 4 CPUs, and 50GB SSD. Save YOUR SERVER EXTERNAL IP ADDRESS. You’ll need it in Step 5.
See instructions to set up Node in Step 3.

Step 3: Run Incognito

In your terminal:
Run the command line below. Replace validator_key with your VALIDATOR KEY (from Step 1).
curl -LO https://node.incognito.org/run.sh && sed -i s/xxx/validator_key/ run.sh && sudo bash run.sh
If you see the following errors, just ignore them. You’re doing well.
Error: No such container: inc_mainnet Error: No such container: eth_mainnet Error response from daemon: network with name inc_net already exists
For the curious, because Incognito is integrated with Ethereum (so you can send ETH and ERC20 tokens privately), its error messages show up here. There’s nothing much we can do about it.

Step 4: Get Privacy Token (PRV) to stake

Privacy (PRV) is the native coin of the Incognito Network. To become a validator, you’ll need to stake 1,750 PRV. You can purchase PRV on the Incognito pDEX using BTC, ETH, USDT, etc...

Tap “Assets” to manage your funds

Step 5: Monitor your node

You can easily monitor your Incognito nodes right from your phone. At the Nodes screen, tap Power
Tap “+” to start adding a new Node
Choose “Virtual Node
Enter your Node’s IP address (from Step 2), then click “Add”
The app locates your associated account accordingly

Step 6: Stake

Almost there! Now, that you’ve got PRV, all you have to do is stake it. Remember, you need to stake at least 1,750 PRV to begin earning rewards.
Tap “Stake”
Review your information. Then tap “Stake 1750 PRV”
Wait 2-5 minutes, then restart the app
Congrats! You’re officially part of the network. Welcome to Incognito :)
IMPORTANT NOTE! Please KEEP YOUR PRIVATE KEY SAFE because anyone who has it can access your funds. You’ll also need it if you have to re-install the mobile app.
