./CasperLabs/execution-engine/target/release/casperlabs-engine-grpc-server $HOME/.casperlabs/.casper-node.sock&
# init node
nodef init testnode --chain-id testnet
# copy execution engine chain configurations
cp ./x/executionlayer/resources/manifest.toml ~/.nodef/config
# create a wallet key
clif keys add elsa # select password
clif keys add anna # select password
# add genesis node
nodef add-genesis-account $(clif keys show elsa -a) 100000000stake
nodef add-genesis-account $(clif keys show anna -a) 100000000stake
nodef add-el-genesis-account elsa "1000000000000000000000000000" "1000000000000000000"
nodef add-el-genesis-account anna "1000000000000000000000000000" "1000000000000000000"
nodef load-chainspec ~/.nodef/config/manifest.toml
# apply default clif configure
clif config chain-id testnet
clif config output json
clif config indent true
clif config trust-node true
# prepare genesis status
nodef gentx --name elsa # insert password
nodef collect-gentxs
nodef validate-genesis
