Tour de SOL Registration
Submit the form here.
Once the form is submitted, our team will review the information and add you to our records.
Complete KYC/AML (Ignore all the references to investment on the portal, we used Coinlist’s default template, apologies for the confusion) here.. Note that KYC/AML is mandatory before participating in any stage, and compensation is conditional upon you passing KYC/AML.
Instructions for completing the participation agreement, and relevant tax documents will be emailed—to the email used on Coinlist, not on Google Forms—to be filled out and returned to us. You will receive an email from Docusign with the relevant tax document within two weeks from Coinlist verification.
The status of your participation agreement will be tracked along with the other registration information. We’ll also endeavor to notify you upon completion or rejection of any submitted participation agreements.

For those who didn’t submit the registration form with a Keybase ID, we’ll be manually adding your to our GitHub repo (the IDs live here).

Tour de SOL Event Format:
Tour de SOL will be split up into 4 separate stages. That will run over the course of several months. A “role call” will be done prior to the start date of each stage to ensure all validators who want to participate are included in that stage’s genesis block. We’ll advise participants on how they can confirm their participation in the event as we get closer.

Stage 0 - Deep Dive
After running our first external validator Dry Run, a few bugs were identified. Therefore we added Stage 0, and pushed everything from Stage 1 onwards out by a month. During this period we’ll be working through the issues identified and running ad-hoc Dry Run’s throughout the remainder of August. We will provide 48 hours notice before any Dry Runs in which Validators are interested in participating. Note: Participation in this stage is purely optional, but immensely appreciated.
For those interested in learning more about what happened during our first external dry run, you can read about it here.
Stage 1 - Deep Dive
This stage is all about maximizing network performance. As a community, it’ll be our opportunity to push past the performance barriers of Layer 1 blockchains, which we never thought were possible.
It will also be a showdown of technical prowess and creativity. We know a lot of you have been busy setting up your own builds, eager to put them into action. We’re also sure that there are others who are eager to test out some attacks during Tour de SOL, which we’re looking forward to.
Please note that during this stage slashing is NOT enabled. Validators will be verifying simple payment transactions throughout the network.
A deep dive on other stages to follow soon…
Details around the balance of the tour are currently being finalized. We expect to have details released in advance of the stage starting.
