What files can I move onto a USB drive?

It is in my understanding that you can transfer files that make it possible to access the funds(pledge) from the hot block producing node onto a USB drive. Which files are needed to keep the pool operational?


The sensitive files (must be protected) are:

  • wallet (payment.skey and stake.skey)
  • pool (cold.counter, cold.skey and cold.vkey or node.counter, node.skey and node.vkey)

The files required for BP are :

  • op.cert /node.cert
  • hot.skey
  • vrf.skey

Be careful to bkp all files (pool/wallet files) before to delete from server… Without the files you’ll be not able to access the wallet funds and operate the pool anymore
