Hi. I’m confused about where the stake address is registered. I am following the coinCachew guide and cross-referencing it with the Stake Pool course. Both guides issue the following command which ouputs a file stake.addr.
Generate Stake address
cardano-cli stake-address build
–out-file stake.addr \
Shortly after that, the instructions are to issue a command that generates an address from both the payment and stake verification keys:
Generate PaymentWithStake Address
cardano-cli address build
The output is a file that creates an address that connects both the payment and stake keys, paymentwithstake. I am assuming this the address we use for our pledge.
But I don’t see where the stake address that was generated is associated or used? Although the guide says rewards will accumulate in the stake.addr, but I don’t see how since I don’t see a command to register this or to associate it with anything, ie the pool. How and where is this used?
I must be overlooking something, but I’m hoping someone will help. I’ve spent a lot of time looking, but am still confused. I don’t want to make a mistake especially not with payment or stake addresses.
