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.
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).
