# Create or update your profile
Upon completing this challenge, you will be rewarded 50 Desmos Tokens.
v0.6.0 we've changed how profiles are created and edited.
# Creating your account
Creating an account is very simple: all you are required to specify is a
dtag. This is very much similar to a Twitter handle, and it basically is a short string that will uniquely identify you among all the users.
While creating an account you can also specify other optional things such as:
- a moniker (aka username)
- a small biography
- a profile picture
- a cover picture
Once you have decided which info you want to make public, you can save (create or edit) your profile by running the following command:
desmoscli tx profiles save "<DTag>" \ --moniker "<Moniker>" \ --bio "<Bio>" \ --profile-pic "<Profile pic URI>" \ --cover-pic "<Cover pic URI>" \ --chain-id morpheus-7001 \ --from <your-key-name> --yes
An example of such command is:
desmoscli tx profiles save "rmontagnin" \ --moniker "Riccardo Montagnin" \ --bio "Desmos developer" \ --profile-pic "https://example.com/profile.jpg" \ --cover-pic "https://example.com/cover.jpg" \ --chain-id morpheus-7001 \ --from jack --yes
Once you've run that command you will be asked to type the password you've chosen during the setup and after having inserted it properly you should see something like this:
height: 0 txhash: 82DC880CA8FF1054B4CDC2443D83C460A4F99BAD94E5C63C45F5D57445ADFE49 codespace: "" code: 0 data: "" rawlog: '' logs:  info: "" gaswanted: 0 gasused: 0 tx: null timestamp: ""
To make sure the transaction has been processed successfully, you can query it using the following command:
desmoscli query tx <hash> --trust-node --output json # Example # desmoscli query tx 82DC880CA8FF1054B4CDC2443D83C460A4F99BAD94E5C63C45F5D57445ADFE49 \ --trust-node --output json
This will return you the JSON representation of the transaction itself.
# Error: Wrong dtag provided
If you're seeing such message when performing the transaction:
sdk: invalid request: wrong dtag provided. Make sure to use the current one: failed to execute message; message index: 0
It means that you already created a profile. To solve this problem, what you need to do is:
Query the current profile details. You can do so by running:
desmoscli query profiles profile $(desmoscli keys show <your-key-name>)1
From the result, get the value of the
dtagthat is shown to you.
Use that value when saving the profile:
desmoscli tx profiles save <dtag> ...1
# Getting the reward
