Interested in becoming a Validator? Start here

The Sommelier validator code is constantly undergoing active development. If you have validator expertise, we encourage you to review this repo and test deploy the code and let us know if you discover any errors or issues.

If you wish to be a validator for mainnet, please express your interest to join the Sommelier mainnet valiator onboarding process by completing the form here: https://forms.gle/D1N3ym4XtajL9Sbn9.

Following up on that, below are two steps the validators have to get familiar with:

  1. Mainnet will launch with just FIVE validators. However, new validators will join on a quarterly basis for Q3 and Q4 2021 with a new validator group joined at the beginning of each quarter.
  2. For Q3, 2021 (July - September) interested mainnet validators will need to have 15 mainnet validator keys. For Q4 (October - December), 2021, this requirement may be reduced or maintained, based on the mainnet performance and feedback from current and rising validators.

Next Step: If you are currently active on 15 or more PoS mainnets, reach out to us on the #:arrows_counterclockwise:-validators channel on our Discord.

We will update all validator-applicants the first week of October, 2021, of any changes to the validator process. The number of validators is not a requirement for participation. It’s a proxy for mainnet validator expertise and priority for onboarding to mainnet which is expected to have multiple upgrades and changes at launch.

Many thanks for all your support and interaction on the #:arrows_counterclockwise:-validators discord channel.
