Run a cluster as a group
Running a Distributed Validator with others typically means that several operators run the various nodes of the cluster. In such a case, the key shares should be created with a distributed key generation process, avoiding the private key being stored in full, anywhere.
There are two sequential user journeys when setting up a DV cluster with others. Each comes with its own quickstart:
- The Creator (Leader) Journey, which outlines the steps to propose a Distributed Validator Cluster.
- In the Creator case, the person creating the cluster will NOT be a node operator in the cluster.
- In the Leader case, the person creating the cluster will be a node operator in the cluster.
- The Operator Journey which outlines the steps to create a Distributed Validator Cluster proposed by a leader or creator using the above process.
