Most block explorers require the version of the Edgeware Public Address that encodes the Edgeware Network ID - if you created your key/address in the Lockdrop or via the Polkadot UI or extension, you first need to regenerate your address using a program called Subkey before you can use it to search. Yu can always use your seed to connect to wallet services, regardless of the network ID.
Edgeware accounts may have two address forms - one that encodes a Substrate Default Network ID and one that encodes the Edgeware network ID. Using block explorers, you should use the Edgeware form, and for all other cases we recommend the Edgeware network ID form, regenerate yours by following these instructions:
At this time, there are several low liquidity markets (~150$ daily volume) that list EDG. You should examine the security of these exchanges before making any purchases. Never buy seed phrases directly, your funds can be stolen.
Yes, Edgeware launched with a fully functional proof-of-stake nomination (also known as delegation,) and validation system. Any user that holds EDG can participate in securing the network and receiving benefits (but also endure the risks of being slashed for a validators nonconformance.)
Validators are elected from a pool of the top 60 most-bonded validators. This election method is not based on amount alone, but a complex algorithm called the Phragmen Method.
Bonding periods last 7 days.
Check that the Controller account has funds to pay transaction fees, this is the most common reason for issues. If you get this error:
submitAndWatchExtrinsic(extrinsic: Extrinsic): ExtrinsicStatus:: 1010: Invalid Transaction: Payment
Check that your Destination field in the Polkadot UI is set to the network default - and not to Kusama or other networks.
Separation of roles helps understand what accounts are performing what transactions, and allows us to disconnect the stash for security - making our wallets 'colder.' while still authorizing a controller to perform certain actions. You dont have to do this, but it is recommended.
Every 'era,' which is roughly 6 hours. An era is a category of block time. See more about time.
You can use the Polkadot UI, then click Chain State tab to query your account for various parameters.
Click the network logo in the top right, and select Edgeware mainnet from the drop down. If you experience connection issues, try changing the endpoint using the custom endpoint option. See the following for other network endpoints:
