STEP4 - Initialize New Node

In this step we will initialize our new Akash Node. In the background several configuration files will be created which can be edited later as needed.
Before starting the node, we specify the Akash network and chain ID
AKASH_NET="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/akash-network/net/main/mainnet"
export AKASH_CHAIN_ID="$(curl -s "$AKASH_NET/chain-id.txt")"
Start the node
akash init --chain-id "$AKASH_CHAIN_ID" "$AKASH_MONIKER"
