Hey Flow community! I’m a newbie, learning about flow.
I’m trying to play with the sample contracts and running in all kinds of issues.
- I’m unable to create an account on testnet. For real, I’m stuck on the simplest step.
I created a key-pair using cli (I tried defaults as well as different signiture algos), I paste my public key to https://testnet-faucet.onflow.org/ , solve captcha, it thinks for a while and gives me a generic ’ Account creation has failed. Check Network Status’. As you probably have guessed - network is healthy.
Could someone give me steps for a complete idiot I am?
- I tried to use emulator but I can’t figure out how to sign the transactions by an account that was created using emulator and is not in the configuration. flow transactions sign … --signer expects an alias and I don’t have an alias. How can I do it?
Also is there any stack exchange or a better place for these kind of questions?
Thanks for your help!
