Tangle Network Validator Onboarding Pause

Tangle Network Validator Onboarding Pause

A Moment to Ensure Stability

We've received overwhelming enthusiasm and interest from our community of validators. With hundreds of validator onboarded since the launch of our testnet, placing us in the top 10 of Substrate networks by nodes, our team has decided to pause onboarding in order to ensure careful stability and scaling of the network.

Telemetry: Tangle Testnet has 383 nodes at the time of publishing.

Focusing on the Current Validators

Our immediate plan involves expanding the active validator set. Currently, there are approximately ~200 validators in our waiting queue. Our goal during this pause is to integrate these waiting validators into active roles, ensuring that everyone has a fair opportunity to contribute and test their setups as we approach Mainnet launch.

How to Join the Waiting List

If you're keen on becoming a Tangle Network validator, we still want to hear from you! Please submit your details via our Signup Form. Rest assured, as soon as we resume onboarding, you will be among the first we reach out to.

For Those Already in the Queue

If you have already received the initial validator tokens and are currently in the waiting queue, you're all set. There's no need to register again. Your patience and understanding during this time are greatly appreciated.


We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of our community members. Your support fuels our commitment to making Tangle Network not just a network but a community thriving on collaboration and innovation.

As we take this brief pause, we're also gearing up for an exciting future.

Stay tuned for more updates, and thank you for being a part of Tangle Network.
