1. Delegate Your Sol to Our Validator Node

  1. Open your stake account on a supported wallet
  2. Use Bison Trails’ vote account address beefKGBWeSpHzYBHZXwp5So7wdQGX6mu4ZHCsH3uTar in solana delegate-stake

    solana delegate-stake --stake-authority <KEYPAIR> <STAKE_ACCOUNT_ADDRESS> <VOTE_ACCOUNT_ADDRESS> \

    --fee-payer <KEYPAIR>
