The Injective community is kicking off the first stage of the Equinox Staking Testnet by beginning to publicly invite validators to onboard.
The community has been working for several weeks alongside some of the largest validators within the crypto ecosystem. Equinox will start staking largely with these validators since they have past experience working extensively with Cosmos based networks. Soon these validators will play a key role as Injective rolls out a truly unparalleled exchange.
Injective will begin to introduce these validators to the larger community throughout the month of February.
Due to an unprecedented surge in demand a form has been created to allow general community members to also indicate their interest in becoming validators on Injective.
