Frequently Asked Questions


What is Dune Network?

Dune Network is a novel platform for distributed applications over a blockchain. The Dune Network is a whole growing ecosystem composed of various projects including:

  • The Dune Network node, based on Tezos’ open source software with multiple extensions.
  • Dune wallets, including web wallets and browser extensions with support for hardware wallets (such as the Ledger Nano S) from the get go.
  • A full-featured block explorer with a carefully engineered API. Building on the blockchain is now a breeze.
  • Multiple native Smart Contract languages.
  • Token interface standards (and more) built into the whole ecosystem.
  • A lot more including a stable coin platform, various dApps, e.g., for notarization, etc.

Earning Rewards

How to delegate DUN coins?

The simplest way to earn rewards is to delegate his/her coins to some baker (validator). To do that:

  • Choose a baker to who you’d like to delegate. A list of delegation services is available on DunScan. But you can also delegate to a baker who is not listed on this page.
  • Follow the steps given in this tutorial to delegate your coins to the baker you’ve just selected.

How to bake on Dune Network?

The main ingredients to bake on Dune Network are the following:

  • Having a staking balance of at least 10,000 DUN (which is referred to as 1 roll). These tokens can either be on your dn address, or a part of them on KT1 accounts delegated to your dn. Note that, you should have at least 10% of the stake on the dn address to be able to deposit bonds (actually 8% should be sufficient in general). DunScan will display some information in red if you need to fund your dn account to be able to deposit bonds for some cycle.
  • Register the dn address as a baker with the command:
    $ ./dune-client -A -P 80 register key as delegate
  • Once you’ve done the steps above, you should be able to bake and endorse in 7 cycles. In the meanwhile, prepare your bakery infrastructure, and test it if needed on the testnet (where cycles take less time).

Network Launch

Does Tezbox support Dune Network?

Tezbox wallet does not officially support Dune. However, there’s a way to interact with Dune Network using Tezbox. In the settings (you can find them at the top of the page on the right when logged in to your Tezos account), change then address of the RPC node to, and use tz addresses instead of dn ones.

How can I claim / check $DUN coins?

To check that your account has been airdropped, follow the steps given here:

How to transfer my $DUN tokens to a fresh Dune address ?

  1. Generate a fresh dn1 address (and private key) on Dune Network, using for instance Dune Web wallet;
  2. In a new browser or in a new private window, restore your Dune or Tezos account using the credentials of your original address (provide the mnemomics, or the private key, or connect your ledger, depending on your situation);
  3. In the account you restored in step 2, transfer your coins to the dn1 address you got at step 1. Start by sending a small amount (eg. 1 UNIT) from the second account to the first one. Then, send back a small amount (eg. 0.5 DUN) from the first account to the second one. If everything works as expected, you can transfer the rest of your coins from the second account to the first one

I don't want to use the Dune app before it's published on Ledger Live. Any workaround?

The process of publishing new crypto applications on Ledger Live may take some weeks. If you can’t/don’t want to install the binaries we provide, you should either wait for Ledger Live version, or try to use Tezos wallet and baking apps on Dune Network. See here for more details: . Not that compatibility in the later case is not guaranteed, and the use of Tezos apps may just fail.

My XTZ / DUN coins are on XXX wallet...

Actually, your coins are stored in the blockchain. What’s stored on XXX wallet are the keys that allow you to interact with your address. If your wallet is connected to a hardware wallet (such as Ledger Nano S), keep in mind that your private key is not accessed by the (software) wallet but only by the hardware one.

I'm using Galleon wallet. How do I claim my $DUN coins?

If you are using a ledger: While connecting Galleon with a Ledger Nano S, you have the possibility to choose the derivation path to log in your wallet. You can find out which one you used in the Galleon’s settings. Once you have the derivation path, you can follow the steps given here to restore your wallet. Remember to use the same derivation path found above to restore the right account.

If you are not using a hardware wallet: you can use the mnemomics of your Galleon wallet to restore your account on Dune wallet as explained here.
