How to Join

Currently, validator registration is a permissioned process to ensure high performance of Tortuga-associated validators.

These steps assume that you are aware of the staking design for the Aptos blockchain. In particular:

  • The minimum stake is currently 1 million APT.

    • Tortuga Finance does not accept validators who do not yet meet this minimum.

  • Aptos owners and operators are two separate concepts.

We recommend reviewing Aptos documentation in full before proceeding.

To register for Tortuga Finance:

  1. Follow all steps provided in the Aptos documentation to bring a validator online and join the validator set. Please ensure the staking pool has enough stake to meet the minimum.

  2. The stake pool owner should call validator_signup.

  3. The validator will now start receiving delegations from Tortuga Finance.

  4. To leave the protocol, the stake pool owner should call validator_begin_leaving.
