I’m trying to start a stake pool in central Texas and have 2 virtual machines and the Cardano tools built on both, with intended block producer node talking to the relay VM.
I’m currently on chapter 3 of 3. Create a simple transaction — cardano-node Documentation 1.0.0 documentation and a little confused.
In section 3.2, they ask to query a Tx output to the payment.addr on the Node machine, but there is no Ada and no transactions tied to this address. Are we supposed to fund payment.addr? This isn’t explicitly called out in the instructions in section 2, and before wiring money to the stake pool payment.addr, I just want to be perfectly clear this is the intention.
Thanks for your help,
