Following, https://docs.filecoin.io/mine/lotus/miner-setup/#adding-the-necessary-swap, I tried creating a miner days ago, used the devnet faucet once, and then lost my OS, losing my keys in the process. So now I’m trying to re-initialize a new miner on the new OS with new keys, but I cannot put in any new bls address into the faucet because my github account has already been used. I understand now that our github account has to be over a year old and have never used the faucet before for it to work.
Does this mean I have to create another account and cannot mine filecoin on devnet for another year?
Or, is there perhaps another way to initialize the miner using a bls address without going through the step of entering it into the faucet at https://spacerace.faucet.glif.io/ first? I don’t need the test FIL. I just want to avoid getting the “actor not found” error when I try to run ‘lotus miner init’ so I can continue to set up and fully understand the miner.
This is what I’m getting and my assumption/understanding is that it’s because I haven’t first entered the bls addr into the faucet, and that’s a necessary step.
