This section introduces you to the validation process and some additional resources.
Important to note: As a validator you do not have to know about the underlying blockchain infrastructure. Once you have set-up a validator node, it runs all processes automatically. Meaning, that you do not have to interfere with the node and you are only required to set up one node to start validating.
To get started validating please go to the next section on Staking and becoming a Validator.
