I may be doing this incorrectly so I’m looking to see what others have done or do.
I configured a cardano-node pool, setup the keys, etc…
Followed Guide: How to build a Cardano Stake Pool - CoinCashew
I got to the part where I create a payment key for the pool.
The doc says to fund that address.
So I whip out Daedalus mainnet and attempt to send funds to the address.
Straight away Daedalus tells me it’s an invalid address.
So did I create the payment address incorrectly or miss a step?
I ran cardano-node query utxo --address (pool payment address) --mainnet and it didn’t complain that the address was invalid. Of course it didn’t return an account balance because I have yet to transfer funds to it.
