Be our validator

1

Ready?

The strength and resilience of a blockchain's capacity is in line with that of its validators. Validators secure the network by staking $CROS tokens, validating proof collectors, and participating in consensus with other validators.

Validate!

New validators will be chosen every 24 hours on mainnet. You will need to get some $CROS from the faucet. If you have more $CROS than the lowest staked validator or there is an open validator slot, you can register to be staked!

Get started now and join the Cros revolution!

Set?

In addition to any usual CLI parameters that you run Cros with, you'll need to add an extra two:
 

  • --validator This tells your node to try to validate when it sees itself as a listed authority on the network
     

  • --key <SEED> This provides your node with a secret key that lets it know whether it's a listed authority on the network, and, if it is, lets it sign statements to authorise the creation of new blocks
