Demystifying Factom Management — Factomize


  • AddServerMessage: The tool to manage the authority set. You need the private skeleton key in order to use it.
  • ServerIdentity: The tool that ANOs use to create, register, and manage their server identities.
  • Sign With Ed25519: A helper utility to sign arbitrary data with a key
  • FER Entry Creator: The tool to adjust the EC rate

Configuring a Node/Network

  1. The server operator has to create and register a valid identity
  2. The block the identity is in is completed
  3. Using the “addservermessage” tool, you type “addservermessage -host=<address of a factom node> send a <identity chain id of the server to be promoted> <network skeleton key>”
  1. Make sure the factoid exchange rate chain exists (111111118d918a8be684e0dac725493a75862ef96d2d3f43f84b26969329bf03)
  2. Configure the utility and specify the private key counterpart to “ExchangeRateAuthorityPublicKey” and an EC private key
  3. Run the tool
  • Expiration Height: the height the entry becomes invalid if it was never activated
  • Activation Height: the height the price activates (needs to be +/- 6 blocks of expiration height and cannot be more than 12 blocks ahead)
  • Priority: The default priority after a price activates is 0, so this is typically always 1. If you mess up, you can use a higher priority to override a pending change
  • Factoshi per EC: the EC rate
