How to display Logo and Moniker on Blockchain Explorer with KeyBase

In blockchain exploration, a lot of users running a node on Cosmos have expressed curiosity about the process of personalizing their own logo and description within all blockchain explorer. But why is this customization crucial? What is the underlying reason behind it?

The answer is that all blockchain explorer use the same technic to display all validators. As users seek to delegate their tokens and select a validator, the presence of a distinguished logo and a well-crafted name becomes paramount. This amalgamation not only fosters credibility but also instills confidence in the minds of potential token delegators.

Conversely, a validator lacking a displayed logo may seem anonymous and lack the necessary credibility required for establishing trust. After all, in a landscape characterized by decentralization and transparency, branding serves as a vital beacon of authenticity.

Let’s create a new account on

Congratulations, you just created your new account, now let’s put our logo!

Congratulations! Your logo has been successfully inserted

The next step is important as this is where you need to retrieve a code, which we will refer to as the “ID_KEYBASE,” to be inserted into the blockchain . This “ID_KEYBASE” code is derived from a PGP key.

Just follow the steps below :

After following all the steps, you should see this page where is displayed your KEYBASE ID.

Let’s copy it and let’s open a terminal to reach our validator node !

Commençons par créer les informations que nous souhaitons insérer (variable) dans notre terminal de commande

BINARY="HERE_THE_BINARY_NAME ex:lavad, aurad etc.."
CHAIN="ENTER_HERE_THE_CHAIN_NAME ex:xstaxy-1, bitcanna-1 etc.."

This command above is used to assign all the data to variables, which will be utilized in the final command for editing your validator node.

echo "binary = $BINARY";
echo "Your name = $NEW_MONIKER";
echo "link of your website = $WEBSITE";
echo "Id Keybase = $ID_KEYBASE";
echo "Details about you = $ABOUTYOU";
echo "Your wallet address = $WALLET_ADDRESS";
echo "Chain name = $CHAIN";
echo "Token Name = $TOKENS";
echo "fees = $FEES";

This command enables you to verify that all the variables output the correct values, ensuring that the displayed values on the screen are accurate before proceeding further.

echo "$BINARY tx staking edit-validator --new-moniker="$NEW_MONIKER" --website="$WEBSITE" --identity="$ID_KEYBASE" --details="$ABOUTYOU" --from="$WALLET_ADDRESS" --chain-id="$CHAIN" --fees="$FEES"";

Once this command executed, you can go and check the status of your Node on Blockchain Explorer such as Guru or Mintscan.

After refreshing the page, behold the magic that unfolds before your eyes! Your logo has been successfully uploaded and is now proudly displayed online, ready to be showcased to the world. Witness the power of your visual representation as it captures attention and leaves a lasting impression on all who encounter it.
