Ethereum developers launched Validator Launchpad on the final version of the Ethereum 2.0 Medalla testnet to educate and prepare future validators for the mainnet launch.
How to claim the developers Ethereum, “launching pad for validators” to test network ETH 2.0 Medalla was launched after several months of hard work of the team of researchers ETH 2.0, as well as Consensys and DeepWork Studio.
Validator Launchpad is running now to the future validators can monitor and contribute to preparing for the deployment of a multi-user test Medalla network. The blog post says:
“The idea behind Validator Launchpad is to make it as easy as possible to operate as an ETH 2.0 validator without compromising security. Unlike using third-party services, launching your own validator is associated with key management. This responsibility entails an inevitable trade-off between ease of use, safety and knowledge. ”
The main goal of the project is to help validators learn about all aspects of the process. In the article, the developers disclosed information about the rewards for validators, the risks and responsibilities they bear.
“We want to make sure you understand that you will only receive rewards if you actively participate in the consensus, and that this process is irreversible. You will not be able to withdraw your ETH from Ethereum 2.0 for a long time. “
In conclusion, the developers note that at least four clients – Lighthouse, Nimbus, Prysm and Teku – will be running on the final testnet. And although the client developers will receive the necessary documentation about Medalla closer to August 4, it is better to choose now which client the potential validator plans to work on.
Unlike previous iterations, Medalla’s testnet will be community driven . In addition, white-hat hacker attacks will be conducted to detect defects and vulnerabilities.
