Congrats team, thanks for the update here!

Looking forward to getting more involved during the testnet phase.

Quick question โ€“ is an EU located validator required for testnet?

Great news from the team! I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll be able to compete with the strongest professional teams, but Iโ€™ll try to launch my validator. More nodes, better decentralization!


Congrats! It seems a new era is starting for dYdX. Iโ€™m looking forward for testnet :slight_smile:
