EthStaker Merge Prep Validator Workshop
The workshop will take place on Friday, July 29th at 11AM EDT
For the purpose of assisting single stakeholders in getting ready for the impending integration, the EthStaker Community is organising a number of livestream workshops. This is an excellent chance to get clarification and make sure that both you and your machine are prepared for the merge.
For this workshop series, EthStaker core members Remy Roy and Yorick will go over Somer Esat's Guides, Coincashew's Guides, and eth-docker installations. The EthStaker team will also be responding to any queries you may have on the merge as it applies to your validator during the livestreams.
