Adding Chainflip APT Repo

Download Chainflip GPG key from our official repo:
sudo mkdir -p /etc/apt/keyrings
curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /etc/apt/keyrings/chainflip.gpg
Verify the key's authenticity:
gpg --show-keys /etc/apt/keyrings/chainflip.gpg
Important: Make sure you see the following output from the terminal.
pub rsa3072 2022-11-08 [SC] [expires: 2024-11-07]
uid Chainflip Labs GmbH <[email protected]>
sub rsa3072 2022-11-08 [E] [expires: 2024-11-07]
Note: Make sure you have curl cli tool.
It should be available on most Linux systems out of the box. You can check if you already have it by running curl --version
If it's not present on your machine, install it by running:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install curl
After that, add Chainflip's Repo to apt sources list:
echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/chainflip.gpg] focal main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chainflip.list
