listYou'll need to run an Eth1 and an Eth2 node to become a validator. Take a look at the checklist to prepare yourself and your equipment.
Try the testnet

Make sure you're aware of how to avoid phishing attacks. We've prepared a list of things to look out for.
Start deposit process
Once you're comfortable, you'll go through generating your keys and depositing your ETH.
