UNS CLI 2.2.0 release

What’s new in UNS CLI 2.2.0

Compatibility with the new SANDBOX network

This CLI is compatible with the first version of uns.network deployed on the new SANDBOX network. It replaced the legacy DEVNET network, which will be shut down in a few days.

You can select the network with the --network flag or the UNS_NETWORK environment variable.

$ uns status --network=sandbox 
  "height": 57621,
  "network": "sandbox",
  "totalTokenSupply": 21115242,
  "tokenSymbol": "SUNS",
  "NFTs": [
      "nftName": "UNIK",
      "individual": "39",
      "organization": "34",
      "network": "44"
  "activeDelegates": 23,
  "lastBlockUrl": "https://sandbox.explorer.uns.network/block/57621"

uns.network CLI v2.2 and more cannot be used with DEVNET network.

New syntaxes

From now, we don’t speak about wallet, but about crypto-account. Indeed, a crypto-account on uns.network allows to create @uniknames and to authenticate with the Unikname Connect solution. It is more than a simple wallet.

CLI has a makeover

Commands are now grouped by scope and autocompletion for prefixes are provided.

$ uns --help

Use your @unikname to become a delegate

You are able to register yourself as a delegate by using your @unikname. On the explorer, your activity as a network player will be linked to the explicit value you had disclosed before.

Other networks players can vote and unvote by only knowing your @unikname. Your address information is not required any more.

Resign command has been activated too.

Set a second passphrase on your crypto-account

With the CLI command cryptoaccount:set-second-passphrase you can associate a second passphrase to your crypto-accout. The passphrase will be printed on your shell and you have to save it. It will be required for all write transaction.

New concepts: Badges

Achieve some actions, like becoming a delegate, brings Badges to your @unikname properties. Getting new badges will provided you new options and give @unikname more visibility.

Bug fixes

  • Second passphrase are now available on any command creating new uns.network transactions (fix GH#35)
