Claim PIRL coins from old chain to Pirl 2.0

This tutorial describes how to claim your Pirl from “old chain” to Pirl 2.0.
Balance of Pirls where taken from snapshot at block 7 650 000, meaning you will only be able to claim what you had in balance at this block.

In this tutorial we will use the MEW wallet and Pirl 2.0 Portal.
Before proceeding, you will have to create a wallet in the Pirl 2.0 Portal and log in to your Pirl wallet in MEW using your Keystore file.

If you dont get any Pirl balance in the MEW wallet, please check your Network settings (1) and set to (PIRL) as shown in picture below.

  • Note: It has been tested and verified that the claim works fine without changing the network as well.

Pirl 2.0 Portal https://dashboard.pirl.network


In Pirl Portal, click Account and choose “Claim Tokens”.


Choose your Pirl 2.0 wallet that you want to use for your claim, and click “Continue”


Copy your Pirl adress from MEW (1) and paste in to Pirl 2.0 Portal (2), and click “Continue”


Go to “Message” in MEW (1) Copy string from Pirl 2.0 Portal (2) and paste in to MEW (3), and click “Sign” and “Confirm Signing” in the next box.


Copy signature message from MEW (1) and paste in to Pirl 2.0 Portal (2), and click “Confirm claim”.


If everything goes well, you will get a confirmation message as shown below. Click “Claim” and then “Submit” in the next box to collect your Pirls.


After a few seconds your Pirl 2.0 balance will be updated with the claimed Pirl.


Well done !

Particiapte in Pirl 2.0


Nominators are one type of participant in the staking subsystem of Pirl.

They are responsible for appointing their stake to the validators who are the second type of participant. By appointing their stake, they are able to elect the active set of validators and share in the rewards that are paid out.

While the validators are active participants in the network that take part in the block production and finality mechanisms, nominators take a more passive role with a "set-it-and-forget-it" approach. Being a nominator does not require running a node of your own or worrying about online uptime. However, a good nominator performs due diligence on the validators that they elect. When looking for validators to nominate, a nominator should pay attention to their own reward percentage for nominating a specific validator - as well as the risk that they bare of being slashed if the validator gets slashed.

Before you start nominating

Do some research before you start, take your time and read the guidence given to make sure that you are getting the most out of your stake and with less risk.

Some tips before you start:

  • Nominate validators with an identity.
    -Known staking services/teams or community members are more likely to be active and keep their Validator online. Some services/teams has their own Discord channels as well.
  • Check history of validator.
    -Performance history are available by clicking on the green chart symbol in the staking list
  • Check "own stake" of validator.
    -If validator missbehaves it can be slashed and loose some or all of its own stake and nominators stake. Validators with higher stake have a higher risk and are more likely to monitor the node carefully.
  • Nominate more then one validator.
    -You are able to choose up to 16 different validators. The network will choose the validator that gives the best return. You can select validators on the wait list as well, and the system will change to any of them when they are choosen to be a active validator.
  • Check validators "commission".
    -Validators are able to set a "commission fee" as a service charge for running the node and VPS cost. Validators with 100% commission will take all of the Pirl reward !

Follow the guide for "How to be a Nominator" when you are ready to start nominating.


Validators secure the Relay Chain by staking PIRL, validating proofs from collators and participating in consensus with other validators.

These participants will play a crucial role in adding new blocks to the Relay Chain and, by extension, to all parachains. This allows parties to complete cross-chain transactions via the Relay Chain.

Validators perform two functions. First, verifying that the information contained in an assigned set of parachain blocks is valid (such as the identities of the transacting parties and the subject matter of the contract). Their second role is to participate in the consensus mechanism to produce the Relay Chain blocks based on validity statements from other validators. Any instances of non-compliance with the consensus algorithms result in punishment by removal of some or all of the validator’s staked PIRL, thereby discouraging bad actors. Good performance, however, will be rewarded, with validators receiving block rewards (including transaction fees) in the form of PIRL in exchange for their activities.

Top 100

Currently, there are only 100 slots available for validators. When all slot are taken, the race for being a validator start. The network only pick the top 100 validator in term of total stakes (validator stake + nominators stake)

At this point, it's important for validator to have some nominators who support them with their own stake to grow the total stake and be in the top 100. The validors that not in the top 100 will not be elected by the network and do not receive any reward.

Follow the guide for "Run a validator" when you are ready to start validating.

How payout works

Written by Masterdubs & FanThomas & WeHaveCookie


If you don't use the right requierements you could have your stake slashed, this guide is a baseline, if you do it your own way be sure to know what you are doing or you will loose money.


The most common way for a beginner to run a validator is on a cloud server running Linux. You may choose whatever VPS providers that your prefer, and whatever operating system you are comfortable with.

The transactions weights in Pirl were benchmarked on standard hardware. It is recommended that validators run at least the standard hardware in order to ensure they are able to process all blocks in time. The following are not minimum requirements but if you decide to run with less than this beware that you might have performance issue.

Minimum Hardware :

  • 10GB ram, 60 GB Storage, 4 CPU , stable server uplink connection with fixed IP

Ideal Hardware :

  • 60GB ram, 300 GB Storage, 6 CPU, stable server uplink connection with fixed IP

Using Ubuntu 18.04 :

Install Rust Once you choose your cloud service provider and set-up your new server, the first thing you will do is install Rust.

If you have never installed Rust, you should do this first. This command will fetch the latest version of Rust and install it.

curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh

Otherwise, if you have already installed Rust, run the following command to make sure you are using the latest version.

rustup update

Finally, run this command to install the necessary dependencies for compiling and running the Polkadot node software.

sudo apt install make clang pkg-config libssl-dev build-essential

Note - if you are using OSX and you have Homebrew installed, you can issue the following equivalent command INSTEAD of the previous one:

brew install cmake pkg-config openssl git llvm

Install & Configure Network Time Protocol (NTP) Client NTP is a networking protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over a network. NTP allows you to synchronize the clocks of all the systems within the network. Currently it is required that validators' local clocks stay reasonably in sync, so you should be running NTP or a similar service. You can check whether you have the NTP client by running:

If you are using Ubuntu 18.04 / 19.04, NTP Client should be installed by default.


If NTP is installed and running, you should see System clock synchronized: yes (or a similar message). If you do not see it, you can install it by executing:

sudo apt-get install ntp

ntpd will be started automatically after install. You can query ntpd for status information to verify that everything is working:

sudo ntpq -p

WARNING: Skipping this can result in the validator node missing block authorship opportunities. If the clock is out of sync (even by a small amount), the blocks the validator produces may not get accepted by the network. This will result in ImOnline heartbeats making it on chain, but zero allocated blocks making it on chain.

Building and Installing the pirl Binary

Centos 8

Install and configure time

dnf install chrony

Enable it

systemctl enable chronyd

Allow the process in firewall

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=ntp && firewall-cmd --add-port=30333/tcp --permanent && firewall-cmd --reload

If you have never installed Rust, you should do this first. This command will fetch the latest version of Rust and install it.

# curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh
# source $HOME/.cargo/env

Otherwise, if you have already installed Rust, run the following command to make sure you are using the latest version.

rustup update

Install development tools

dnf group install "Development Tools" -y

Install other tools needed

dnf install -y cmake llvm  llvm-devel clang

Install rust tools

rustup toolchain install nightly-2020-10-06
rustup update nightly
rustup update stable
rustup target add wasm32-unknown-unknown --toolchain nightly-2020-10-06-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

clone Pirl from github

git clone  --depth 1 --branch  0.8.25 https://github.com/pirl/pirl-2_0

move to pirl-2_0 directory and build it

cargo +nightly-2020-10-06-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu build --release

Copy the binary ready to use

 cp -rp target/release/pirl /usr/bin/

Make the service permanent

create systemd file in /usr/lib/systemd/system/pirl.service

Description=Pirl Validator


ExecStart=/usr/bin/pirl  --port "30333"   --ws-port "9944"   --rpc-port "9933" --validator  --name "CHANGE IT TO A DESIRED NAME"
ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 5


Check if your node is appearing in the telemetry UI : https://telemetry.polkadot.io/#list/Pirl

Do not forget to change the name parameter (--name "CHANGE IT TO A DESIRED NAME")

Step 2 Assign the node to an account

We assume that you have already claim your coin from Pirl 1.0 (see how to claim) or you already have an account with your Pirl on it.

You need to create an controller account in order to do the next steps.

The stash account serve as you "cold wallet" with all your precious coin

The controller account serve as a manager to your stash account

Always keep in safe place your keystore file or your 12/24 words seed

To create an controller account, add account Controller

Choose any name that suit for you Controller

Then send some pirl (from your stash account) for covering network fees Controller

You can proceed to the next steps

Create session key:

Go in you terminal where the node is installed and paste the current command, you will have a session key of your node.

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"id":1, "jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "author_rotateKeys", "params":[]}' http://localhost:9933

Submitting the setKeys Transaction:

Go to the explorer you can now create a validator, use the key generated above to paste in the form.

Last step, hit the validate button when the transaction is confirmed.

In case you have already bonded your pirl Stashes

If your currently nominate, you can stop that with square button

You can add your session key in the associate button Stashes

Voila, you are all set

How to be a Nominator


You need an account with some pirl on it. If you have a Pirl 1.0 account and do not have claim it yet on the new blockchain, please refer to this tutorial


  1. You need to create a new account for control your staked Nominate Nominate

  2. Then send some pirl for covering network fees Nominate

  3. Then go to staking panel Nominate

  4. Add nominator Nominate

  5. For stash account, select the account with you stash (the one with all your precious pirl) and for controller account, the newly created account in step 1 Nominate

  6. Choose your validator, you can choose multiple validators. This choice is up to you.


For avoiding being slashed (aka loose money), choose wisely your validator ! The validator need to have good uptime (99.99%) and good behaviour (see How does slashing works ? for more info about slashing). The list below is purely indicative and not a recommandation.


How to find a good validator ?

You always can check validator stats in the targets tab by clicking on the stats icon on the right

Then you can see different kind of useful info for making your choice :

  • era point : Score of this validator for each era
  • elected stake : How much pirl has been staked on this validator each era
  • rewards & slashes : How much this validator get reward and how much it was slashed each era
  • commission : Value of the commission fee of this validator each era


Rewarding system work as follow :

Validator are reward by block reward + 20% transaction fee. This do not depend on stake amount !

Validator take a % commision (you can see that info in staking overview)

Validator and Nominator share the remaining reward according to their share

Eg. Validator has 100 pirl staked, NominatorA has 50 pirl staked and NominatorB has 200 pirl staked

Validator get 28.57% of the remaining reward, NominatorA 14.29% and NominatorB 57.14%.

You can check potential profit/era in the targets panel, but be carreful, this value change according to nomination on each era

  1. Now you need to authorize transaction Nominate

  2. And tadaa ! Enjoy staking with Pirl. Your all done. Nominate

How to unbound fund

Hey fellows, you will see in this guide how to unbound fund from staking, and how to rebound fund previously unbound.

Firstly, go on the Staking tab under Network tab You can see here your current stashes. StakingView


If you want to unbound some pirl, just click on the 3 dots on the right of you choosen stash then select Unbound funds Unbound

Then enter the amount you want to unbound and submit transaction Unbound

Now, you will need to wait around 28 days to use your unbounded PIRL again. You can see the remaining blocks when you hover Unbound


In case you have unbound by mistake (10k instead of 1k for instance) you can rebound your fund without have to wait the unbound period of 28 days.

To rebound your funds go on extrinsics tab under Developer tab. rebond

  1. Choose your Controller account
  2. Select staking
  3. Select rebond(value)
  4. Specify the number of pirl you want to rebond

Then submit your transaction. You should now see your pirl rebond and available for staking ! rebondDone

Thanks you to use PIRL 2.0

How payout works

You can find your pending payout in the payout tab



When you click on Payout button, you request the payout of your reward. This request is made for everyone associated on this validator.

Like you can see on this picture, when I request an payout, this is effective for all my nominators (and my nominators can also request the payout).

When a payout is done, both validator and nominators get their respective rewards and the payout disappear from this tab for everyone, because it has already processed

So it's normal to not always seen an payout on the payout tab, that's mean somebody already request the payout and it's already processed.

How to vote for council

How to make a treasury tips

How to set identity

How works democracy in PIRL 2.0

Since PIRL moved to substrate, democracy is the new way to do things in PIRL 2.0.

But, what’s democracy in PIRL ? What does it mean ? How does it work and how can you use it to improve the network ?

A lot of questions that we will try to answer on this paper.

Let’s jump in into democracy in PIRL 2.0 together and find out what it is

Governance stuff & capabilities

Democracy allows anyone in the community to give their opinions and propose improvement to the network chain. It’s a really powerful tool right in the hand of PIRL 2.0 users. We can either modify the parameter of the system, deciding on runtime code updates, do typing, make bounties, propose referenda or even submit proposals. A lot of things that we will deep further later on. HowWorksDemo1

Governance structure

Pirl democracy is based on a tricameral governance model.


Technical Committee

What can they do ?

Technical committee is able to pass some urgent motions to ensure network stability and security.

Why is it important ?

They ensure the security and the stability of the blockchain. On their watch, the blockchain is reliable.

Who can be in this committee ?

Is reserved to people that contribute directly to the network source and have a deep understanding on how the blockchain works technically.


What can they do ?

Council can vote on motions and treasury proposals/tips. They also can submit proposals.

Why is it important ?

Council needs to ensure that proposals made by everyone are beneficial for the network and improve it. With their power to vote, they have the ability to drive the blockchain further. They also ensure that treasury funds is well used to make the blockchain even better and can decide to tips contributor for theirs work

What are the responsibilities of a council member?

Being on the council also means showing willingness to regularly check whether there are new motions or proposals. And maybe even if you are not sure what these are for, consult with the other members if they are known. It is also about discussing a decision together with the team.

Who can be in the Council ?

Council members are elected each term (currently 7 days). Everyone can submit his own candidacy to be elected by the community and participate deeper into the blockchain.

Public token holders

What can they do ?

They can submit proposals, votes for referenda and elect council members.

Why is it important ?

They have the ability to elect council members, through them, they could improve the blockchain. Every vote count and every proposal count. The referenda allows Public token holders to votes on important motion

Who can be Public token holder ?

Anyone with pirls is part of the community. You’re already part of the community !


Thanks you for your participation into PIRL 2.0 democracy

How to submit a proposal

Hey fellows ! In this guide, you will see how to create and submit a proposal to the council.

Proposal allow any users to share idea to improve the network and submit this idea to the council. Proposal need to be seconds by other users to be submitted to the vote of the council.

Go on democracy panel then start by Submit preimage PreImage

Then choose the right category for your proposal, in this case we want to propose a new bounty so we choose treasury then proposeBounty PreImageSettings

We specify the value (in this case the reward of the bounty) and description for this proposal. Then before submit, copy-past the preimage hash. Do not forget to do this otherwise you will need to retrieve the hash into the explorer.

Currently the network doesn't allow user to put text field. So you will need to detail your proposal into the discord channel proposal-voting This feature is under the hood.


When this is done, click on submit proposal SubmitProposal

Copy the preimage hash from the previous step SubmitProposalHash

You should see your new proposal now SubmitDone

You can now give us more context on discord !

And thanks you for your contribution

How to vote for candidates to council

Hey fellows ! In this guide, you will see how to cast your vote for nominate council member

It's pretty straigthforward but I think it's important to do a note on this, cause it's an important process in PIRL 2.0

All proposals and treasury tips are submitted to the vote of the council. They have the power to improve the network. So i'ts important to cast your vote and choose wisely.

Go on council page

You can see some info like current council members and candidates for next election. Council members are elected for 7 days.

On the top right, you can either vote for next election or submit a candidacy to be maybe into the next council.

Click on vote to cast your vote. CouncilVote

You can see your vote value (equal to the pirl amount of your account used to vote)

You can votes for more than 1 user. Just be carefull because vote is prioritized.

Do not forget The amount used for vote will be locked (not available for transfer)

Thanks you for your participation into PIRL 2.0 democracy

How to make a treasury tips

Hey fellows ! In this guide, you will see how to submit a treasury tips.

If you wonder how you can propose a tip for people that you think deserves some kind of gratitude, you could propose a tip !

Tips can be suggested by anyone and are supported by members of the Council. There are two types of tips: public and tipper-initiated. Public tips have a bond and carry a finder's fee of 20% which is paid out from the total amount. Tipper-initiated (tips that a Council member published) do not have a finder's fee nor a bond.

Go on the tips page from Treasury tabs : https://explorer.pirl.network/#/treasury/tips tips

Then click on Propose tip tipsRequest

You will need to choose a beneficiary, fill the tip reason (why council shoud accept this tips request) then a tips value.

The final value of the tip is decided based on the median of all tips issued by the tippers (council members).

Tip will enter a closing phase when more than a half plus one of the council have endorsed a tip. So it should be done with justified reason.

When the 7th council member voted, a 24 hours countdown does start, then when this is over, a council member need to close the tip. tipsClose

Then the tips is proceed tipsReceived Thanks you for contributing in PIRL 2.0

Not at the beginning but we will support hardware wallets at a later stage. No date or schedule yet.

How does slashing works ?

  • Level 1: isolated unresponsiveness, i.e. being offline for an entire epoch. No slashing, only chilling.
  • Level 2: concurrent unresponsiveness or isolated equivocation. Slashes a very small amount of the stake and chills.
  • Level 3: misconducts unlikely to be accidental, but which do not harm the network's security to any large extent. Examples include concurrent equivocation or isolated cases of unjustified voting in GRANDPA. Slashes a moderately small amount of the stake and chills.
  • Level 4: misconduct that poses a serious security or monetary risk to the system, or mass collusion. Slashes all or most of the stake behind the validator and chills.

Reference research article about slashing

Can I get my coins back if I stake or create a validator ?

Yes you can unlock them when you want, you will have to wait the cooldown period to get it credited in your wallet, actual waiting period is 28 days.


What is the validator reward amount ?

We can calculate it precisely, it depend on the network staking rate. Validator will have minted coins plus 20% of the transfert fees ( 80% goes to decentralised treasury ). Rewards are calculated based on era points, which have a probabilistic component. In other words, there may be slight differences in your rewards from era to era, and even amongst validators in the active set at the same time. These variations should cancel out over a long enough timeline.

What is the minimum requierement for a validator ?

The absolute minimum requrements to run the validator node are described below. This settings are NOT recomended as this could lead to unstable node and you could end up getting slashed!! If running validator node with specs close to minimum you must monitor your node and set up warnings for load etc..

  • Minimum: 10 GB RAM, 60 GB Storage, 4 CPU
  • Recomended: 60 GB RAM, 300 GB Storage, 6 CPU
  • Public IP on validator node needed for basic setup. (More information will come on how to setup a secure validator with sentry nodes)
  • Stabile internet connection are required. The validator nodes plays a very important role by securing the network and we recommend renting VPS from providers with good infrastructure and not trying to set up at home.
