It is time to configure your node. Sync your eth1 consumer (begin now! this will take a while), arrange your favourite eth2 consumer, and cargo up your validators.
Take a look at the Launch Pad’s Eth2 Staker Guidelines for the minimal steps it’s best to carry out earlier than genesis.
Monitor updates by means of genesis 👀
Though all eth2 purchasers have minimize mainnet v1.0 releases, preserve your eye on any developments by means of genesis. Within the occasion that your eth2 consumer cuts a launch 24 hours earlier than genesis, it is probably for an excellent cause and you ought to be on prime of it.
Be part of your consumer’s discord, and if they’ve a mailing record, join!
Along with the client-specific sources, I extremely suggest becoming a member of the ethstaker discord. It is an ideal place to ask questions and share info, and I anticipate it to be very lively by means of genesis. If there’s something it is advisable know, it would very probably floor there.
Thanks and congratulations
I wished to supply one other large thanks and congratulations to everybody who has helped make this a actuality. I could not be extra excited to see the Ethereum neighborhood lastly bootstrap this new proof-of-stake consensus mechanism.
Though there may be nonetheless a lot work to do, it is a good time to take a deep breath and smile.
