WELCOME TO THE SOLANA FORUMS
In its current phase, this forum designed to be a dedicated resource for those interested in, or those already participating as validators or miners on the network. As we are still in the early stages of on-boarding validators and miners to the network not all details are immediately available. However, we will continue to update this pinned post to include essential information as it becomes available.
In the meantime, feel free to explore our other channels (links provided below).

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
We’re taking applications from interested parties who want to mine on Solana. Please fill out the details on this page so that we can register your interest and reach out when we’re ready.
Our guide for participation in our testnet as a validator is provided here.
For any technical issues that you might be experiencing please join us in our #validator-support channel on Discord
ROADMAP FOR ON-BOARDING VALIDATORS/MINERS
Over the rest of 2019 we’ll be progressively on-boarding validators and miners. Initially we’ll be on-boarding only a small set of validators and miners to work through early issues to ensure that the testnet is stable. As we feel more and more comfortable with the progress on this front, we’ll begin to invite more validators and miners onto the network.
If you’re curious about progress on how that’s going, you’ll be able to see the action unfold in our #validator-support channel on Discord.
All of this shall culminate to our Tour De Sol (similar to Game of Stakes run by Cosmos) to stress test the network and work through any final issues - while having some fun with our community members along the way - before launching our mainnet.
