1. Initialize a blockchain node

1sonrd init localnet

2. Generate account keys

3. Add the account to the genesis file

1sonrd add-genesis-account $(sonrd keys show test-validator -a) \ 2 1000000000000000000000000000stake,1000000000000000000000000000snr

4. Generate a genesis transaction

1sonrd gentx test-validator 1000000000000000000000000000stake --chain-id localnet

5. Collect genesis transactions

1sonrd collect-gentxs
