Quickstart Guides

caution

Charon is in an early alpha state and is not ready to be run on mainnet

There are two ways to run a distributed validator and each comes with its own quickstart

  1. Run a DV cluster with a group of other node operators, where you each run only one validator client and charon client, and the charon clients communicate with one another over the public internet to operate the distributed validator.
  2. Run a DV cluster alone, by running all of the required software as containers within docker.
