Pre-genesis validator instructions
Pre-genesis is defined as "before" the first (a.k.a genesis) block. At genesis, there will be a set of validators with a pre-defined amount of tokens (described in the genesis file).
For testnets, it is possible to apply to become a pre-genesis validator. In order to do so, please follow these steps.
If the testnet is already running and you have not been selected as a pre-genesis validator, please follow the steps for joining as a full node. If you still wish to validate, you can follow the steps to become a post-genesis-validator.
