The easiest way to get detailed help is to use the cli itself. For example below is the cookbook which gives an overview of various commands.

By default, cookbook will show the mainnet shard 0 ( RPC endpoint. Use the parameter --node="<RPC>" so the example would show the s0 in the targeted network, example ./hmy cookbook --node="" would show s0 in OSTN

./hmy cookbook --node=""

#Cookbook of Usage


#1) Every subcommand recognizes a '--help' flag
#2) If a passphrase is used by a subcommand, one can enter their own passphrase interactively
#   with the --passphrase option. Alternatively, one can pass their own passphrase via a file
#   using the --passphrase-file option. If no passphrase option is selected, the default
#   passphrase of '' is used.
#3) These examples use Shard 0 of Open Staking Network as argument for --node


#1.  Check account balance on given chain
./hmy --node="" balances <SOME_ONE_ADDRESS>

#2.  Check sent transaction
./hmy --node="" blockchain transaction-by-hash <SOME_TX_HASH>

#3.  List local account keys
./hmy keys list

#4.  Sending a transaction (waits 40 seconds for transaction confirmation)
./hmy --node="" transfer \
    --from-shard 0 --to-shard 1 --amount 200 --passphrase

#5.  Sending a batch of transactions as dictated from a file (the `--dry-run` options still apply)
./hmy --node="" transfer --file <PATH_TO_JSON_FILE>
#Check README for details on json file format.

#6.  Check a completed transaction receipt
./hmy --node="" blockchain transaction-receipt <SOME_TX_HASH>

#7.  Import an account using the mnemonic. Prompts the user to give the mnemonic.
./hmy keys recover-from-mnemonic <ACCOUNT_NAME>

#8.  Import an existing keystore file
./hmy keys import-ks <PATH_TO_KEYSTORE_JSON>

#9.  Import a keystore file using a secp256k1 private key
./hmy keys import-private-key <secp256k1_PRIVATE_KEY>

#10. Export a keystore file's secp256k1 private key
./hmy keys export-private-key <ACCOUNT_ADDRESS> --passphrase

#11. Generate a BLS key then encrypt and save the private key to the specified location.
./hmy keys generate-bls-key --bls-file-path <PATH_FOR_BLS_KEY_FILE>

#12. Create a new validator with a list of BLS keys
./hmy --node= staking create-validator --amount 10 --validator-addr <SOME_ONE_ADDRESS> \
    --bls-pubkeys <BLS_KEY_1>,<BLS_KEY_2>,<BLS_KEY_3> \
    --identity foo --details bar --name baz --max-change-rate 0.1 --max-rate 0.1 --max-total-delegation 10 \
    --min-self-delegation 10 --rate 0.1 --security-contact Leo  --website --passphrase

#13. Edit an existing validator
./hmy --node="" staking edit-validator \
    --validator-addr <SOME_ONE_ADDRESS> --identity foo --details bar \
    --name baz --security-contact EK --website \
    --min-self-delegation 0 --max-total-delegation 10 --rate 0.1\
    --add-bls-key <SOME_BLS_KEY> --remove-bls-key <OTHER_BLS_KEY> --passphrase

#14. Delegate an amount to a validator
./hmy --node="" staking delegate \
    --delegator-addr <SOME_ONE_ADDRESS> --validator-addr <VALIDATOR_ONE_ADDRESS> \
    --amount 10 --passphrase

#15. Undelegate to a validator
./hmy --node="" staking undelegate \
    --delegator-addr <SOME_ONE_ADDRESS> --validator-addr <VALIDATOR_ONE_ADDRESS> \
    --amount 10 --passphrase

#16. Collect block rewards as a delegator
./hmy --node="" staking collect-rewards \
    --delegator-addr <SOME_ONE_ADDRESS> --passphrase

#17. Check elected validators
./hmy --node="" blockchain validator elected

#18. Get current staking utility metrics
./hmy --node="" blockchain utility-metrics

#19. Check in-memory record of failed staking transactions
./hmy --node="" failures staking

#20. Check which shard your BLS public key would be assigned to as a validator
./hmy --node="" utility shard-for-bls 2d61379e44a772e5757e27ee2b3874254f56073e6bd226eb8b160371cc3c18b8c4977bd3dcb71fd57dc62bf0e143fd08
