How can I move my Guardian Node to a new computer?

To move your Guardian Node to a new computer, you first need to install the GN app on the new computer (it will have a new node address). You must use the same password for this new node as you were for your existing node to be transferred. Then, take the keystore file from your original GN and swap it into the same folder on the new computer. The keystore file is located here:

on PC: C:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Roaming\Theta Guardian Node\ThetaGN\configs\mainnet\key\encrypted

on Mac: /Users/(your username)/Library/Application Support/Theta Guardian Node/ThetaGN/configs/mainnet/key/encrypted

Then after you've replaced the keystore on the new computer with your original keystore, start up the GN app on the new computer and it will be your original node with your THETA tokens still staked to it.
