As of right now, there aren’t any technical requirements to start playing around on the testnet, have at it. Closer to TdS launch, we’ll be enabling GPU transaction verification which will give a huge TPS boost to validators with GPUs. Potential participants should plan on having their GPU hardware ready before the event starts. See our recommended Validator node specs here (specifically the “mid-range option” should be plenty of firepower).
Where can I stay updated about TdS?
Join our Discord for support from our team and to follow along for Tour de SOL updates and announcements (have a look in #validator-support). You can also find community support in our recently launched forums. TdS news will be announced on both channels so keep an eye out!
Inspired by Cosmos’ Game of Stakes we loved the idea of getting early on in the project to help build out our global network.
