Often it makes sense to upload documents to Arweave and link to them from governance proposals. For example, if the proposal character length is longer than Snapshot’s limit, or if linking to some other document that you want to make sure the link doesn’t ever break and the content stays the same.
If you upload to Arweave often, you may want to use arkb on the command line instead of Ardrive.
- Go to https://app.ardrive.io/#/sign-in
- Select “Select Wallet” and select the JSON file of your Arweave key
- If you don’t have an Arweave wallet, select “Don’t have a wallet? Get one here!” and use the faucet to get some $AR. Alternatively, ask @aloceros for $AR.
- Set a username and password for Ardrive and select “Add Profile”
- Select “New” at the top and select “New drive” in the dropdown.
- Pick a “Name” and set the “Privacy” field to “Public”.
- Select the newly created drive on the left side bar and then drag the file you want to upload onto the screen.
- The popup will show you how much $AR it will cost to upload. Select “Upload”.
- This process can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. The file icon will have an orange dot on it while it is being uploaded, and green dot once the upload is complete.
- After the file is uploaded, select it to bring up this right side bar
- Copy the “Data Tx ID” and append it to
arweave.net/to get the URL.
