  2. Run the following command to get the PGP public key:

    4
    5
    6
    # List the PGP keys.    
    gpg -K --keyid-format long --with-colons --with-fingerprint
    # Export the public PGP key for "keybase.io".
    # The fpr value(fingerprint value without the colons part).
    # should be used in the following command.
    gpg --export -a B2CA5FBEER5A9B29C9C8ED3A524D4026B4DBA588
