Counter Stake - New Testnet CS-2006

Hey @everyone

Last week we encountered an issue with a network node code for a circular dependency between Heimdall and Bor which caused multiple issues with CS-2004 and 2005. For CS-2006, we are following a slightly different network rollout strategy. We will be adding validators to the network in a staggered manner in groups of 5-10 over the week.

Initially, we have the Matic Foundation Nodes up and running. We are going to add 8 more validators to the list as of now and subsequently, we will keep adding validators to the list/network throughout the week.

Here is a list of validators that were randomly selected to join the network:

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. This is in case you are running a previous setup.

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.

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

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

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

Happy Staking & Please stay safe!

Hey Delroy!
I have changed my address before testnet, and taking part in previous version (2005.4 etc) with address 0x277bC0C390917e0588B1Df7173DcbE6f0D9DA111. Fix it please.
