I have the self-generated keys in Ubuntu server.
I don't want to use wallet that's why I used the command
tezos-client gen keys ACCOUNTNAME to generate key and secret.
Now, I have successfully imported my account into system and I tried to register as a baker using the command
sudo -u tezos tezos-client register key testy12 as delegate Which gives me an error:
Empty implicit contract (tz1NhTmL9AuetbQrAg3daigDoXcqx7K6ewA9)`.
tz1NhTmL9AuetbQrAg3daigDoXcqx7K6ewA9 is my pub key hash.
In order to register as a baker do I need to transfer 8k tez first in the pub key hash and then need to perform register command? let me know If I am missing anything.
