Becoming a Shadow Operator

Steps to becoming a Shadow Operator:

  1. 1.
    You'll need a server! Right now, only machines which meet the minimum required specs for running a Solana server are able to apply. https://docs.solana.com/running-validator/validator-reqs
    • The Solana server program has you covered
    • Follow the instructions to gain access to a high powered server curated by Solana themselves!
    • Applicants must apply through the processes outlined in this site and are subject to KYC checks. This is a Solana requirement.
  2. 2.
    Once you have a server up and running you will need to configure it.
  3. 3.
    Follow the instructions to register your node - https://portal.genesysgo.net/#
    • Upon registering your node you will be automatically connected to the upstream and your server will be serving Solana Mainnet RPC traffic!
