Registering as a validator on Testnet

Aleph Zero aims to be a fully secure and decentralised platform without any governance. On Mainnet this is achieved by de-incentivising malicious behaviour. However, on Testnet the situation is more subtle, as the tokens do not have any real value. To mitigate the risk of a sybil attack, we therefore ask our prospective validators to verify their honest intentions by proving the ability to run a node.
To that end, we have created a short form, in which you will be asked to sign a message using your running node's p2p_secret (it is generated automatically).
In the next section we describe in detail the actions required by the form (in addition to the instructions you can find in the form itself).
