Generate keys

This guide demonstrates how to generate private keys for your nodes.

Generate locally


Go (version 1.17 or later). Follow the installation instructions on the official website.


  1. Compile the ethkey tool from the Ronin source code by running the following commands:

    git clone
    cd ronin
    go get ./...
    go build ./cmd/ethkey/
    ls -l ethkey
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 user staff 16306850 Mar 23 18:13 ethkey
  2. Generate the key and set a password:

    ./ethkey generate your-key-name
  3. Reveal the key and enter the password:

    ./ethkey inspect --private your-key-name
