Counter Stake - New Testnet CS-2005

Hey @everyone!

As you all know we had made an announcement earlier last week that we will be spinning up to a new testnet because of the issues we encountered. We have now up and running with a new testnet. We are done with all our internal tests and are ready to open it to the community.

Please note that this time we have used Goerli as our testnet for running CS-2005.

We are moving ahead with all the selected validators from the list as previously announced. The list of the all the validators is here:

All validators will have to set up their node from scratch and then move ahead with staking on the network to become a validator. Also, we have removed the added dependency of running an additional command to join the validator pool after staking. So after staking you will automatically join the validator pool and become a validator. We have also updated the same in our Docs and Staking Dashboard.

But first, you will need to delete all previous entries of Heimdall and Bor you can follow the instructions here: https://forum.matic.network/t/how-to-delete-previous-entries-of-heimdall-and-bor/163

Once you are done with this you can then follow the instructions from our docs to setup your nodes. We have 2 different methods to setup nodes:

Linux packages - https://docs.matic.network/docs/validate/counter-stake-stage-1/linux-package-installation

Binaries - https://docs.matic.network/docs/validate/counter-stake-stage-1/running-with-binaries

Once you’re done with setting up you can then move on to staking on Matic. You can either stake through CLI or use the Dashboard to stake.

We have already sent testnet staking tokens to all the validators on the list.

Stake through CLI: https://docs.matic.network/docs/validate/counter-stake-stage-1/stake-on-matic

Stake through Dashboard: https://wallet.matic.today/staking

CS-2005 details here:

Repository: https://github.com/maticnetwork/public-testnets

Heimdall chainID: heimdall-cs2005

Bor chainID: 2005

Staking testnet tokens contract address on Goerli:

0xDB449f6d9549D3E6C17B6A0349bf840a24b111ac

Note: If you’re running a full node, we recommend not setting it up on a laptop

Happy Staking & Please stay safe!
