Add a Validator Image
In order to have your validator profile image displayed on the most commonly used Cosmos blockchain explorers, you need to follow two different procedures
Firstly, register on keybase.io, and create your profile by adding a profile image, which will be used as your validator image. Once your profile is created, access it and you will be prompted to create a PGP key.
Download Keybase onto your machine and follow the installation guide for your operating system.
Create a PGP key and add it to your keybase profile. Once that is complete, you need to perform what is called an
Edit Validator Transaction

If you'd like to link your website and add a description of your validator, you have the option to fill out the following two fields
--details="These are my validator details"
If the transaction is successful, you will see the edits immediately
By following this procedure, your validator image will be visible on Mintscan.
Here's what you'll need:
- A GitHub account with a PAT (Personal Access Token) enabled with all repo scopes
- Your validator image in the format
<your_sentval_address>.pngGo to https://github.com/cosmostation/chainlist
Fork the project
Clone the forked project to your computer
git clone https://github.com/cosmostation/chainlist
Navigate to the directory from which you will execute the next commands
Create a new branch named after your validator
git branch <your_validator_name>
Checkout to that branch
git checkout <your_validator_name>
Copy your validator image to the folder
cp /path/to/your/<your_sentval_address>.png ~/chainlist/chain/sentinel/moniker/
Set the necessary configuration parameters
git config --global user.name "Your Username"
git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Set access via your Personal Access Token (PAT)
git remote set-url origin https://<your_github_user>:<your_token>@github.com/<your_github_user>chainlist.git
Push your branch to your forked repository
git add .
git commit -m "Add <your_validator_name> logo for Sentinel"
git push origin <your_validator_name>
If the command is successful go to https://github.com/cosmostation/chainlist and create a pull request. Once the pull request is created, wait for some time until your validator image is updated. When the update is complete, the pull request will be closed.
