I ran the command to generate a payment address as below.
cardano-cli shelley address key-gen \ --verification-key-file payment.vkey \ --signing-key-file payment.skey
and then build the payment address
cardano-cli shelley address build \ --payment-verification-key-file payment.vkey \ --out-file payment.addr \ --testnet-magic 1097911063
But when I cat the payment.addr, I see a strange output
My testnet node seems to be running fine, unless I’m missing something here:
Could someone pls help me understand whats wrong here?
