Cannot Register Stake Pool

Hello All,

I am at the last step of registering my stake pool and I am getting this error:

root@block-producer:~/cardano-my-node# cardano-cli transaction submit \

--tx-file tx.signed \

Command failed: transaction submit Error: Error while submitting tx: ShelleyTxValidationError ShelleyBasedEraMary (ApplyTxError [LedgerFailure (UtxowFailure (UtxoFailure (ValueNotConservedUTxO (Value 515814611 (fromList )) (Value 1005814611 (fromList )))))])

I am thinking I need more ADA? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You will need to have 500 ADa for registering cost + few ADA for fee

1 ADA = 1.000.000 lovelace

My ADA balance is 515814611, that should be enough. Are there any other logs I can look at to see what is causing this error?

Ok, perhaps u already paid the registration cost?

It tells you that you did not calculate the output correctly. Generally for every transaction sum of inputs must be equal to the sum of outputs + fee. otherwise you would burn Ada or created Ada from nowhere.
If your balance is ~515 Ada,then there cannot be any output of ~1005 Ada

Ok, so I have a balance of ~515 ADA and the fee is 196609. I do subtraction of 515814611-196609=515618002. This number should be the txout represented like this correct:

–tx-out $(cat payment.addr)+5156188002

My question is where does ~1005 ADA figure come from?

check the wallet address on

Total input is 516 and total output is 515.814.611. Am I lacking ADA to complete the registration of the stake pool? I am following the coincashew instructions to the tee. This is confusing…

I know what I did wrong the poolDeposit had the wrong value. I set the value to 500000000. Transaction successfully submitted.

When I tried to query the stake pool ID my block-producer stopped syncing. Any idea why?
