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. 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. 2.
    The stake pool owner should call validator_signup.
  3. 3.
    The validator will now start receiving delegations from Tortuga Finance.
  4. 4.
    To leave the protocol, the stake pool owner should call validator_begin_leaving.
